George Harrison: My Sweet Lord 2000 (2001)
With the 50th anniversary edition of George Harrison's All Things Must Pass album remixed and re-released (51 years after its original release) in a slightly less Spectorised edition, it's worth remembering we have passed this way before.

A decade ago the album was reissued on limited edition vinyl which replicated the original three-LP set.

On the 30thanniversary of the album it reappeared with new and colourised art work, and bonus tracks . . .  among them his 2000 revisit to My Sweet Lord.

And in 2014 it was there again in the seven CD and DVD box set George Harrison: The Apple Years 1968-75.

The breakout single from the album underwent considerable revision with Sam Brown sharing vocals with Harrison and “most of the other instruments have been been replaced,” he wrote at the time.

You be the judge.

It's different . . . and he might not have been sued for this version.

It's underwhelming, the hooks have gone, his vocals are dodgy and the backing vocal unnecessary. Glad you have bought this up, I was one of the ones that purchased the 30th anniversary set at the time . I'm prob a bit boxed set out with All Things Must Pass.....Now the next Dylan Bootleg series, "Springtime in New York" is another matter - already pre-ordered and can't wait...

I agree a very under whelming release in fact I never owned the original vinyl passing it off as not great back in the day. His songs are very much in the same vain. His contribution to the Beatles was his best and so was John Lennon's. Both went on tangents that left me behind.
