The 50th anniversary of George Harrison's first post-Beatles solo album, the triple-record-set All Things Must Pass, will be commemorated with a BBC radio special. The Daily Beatle reported the hour-long program, All Things Must Pass At 50, will be broadcast on BBC Radio 4 on November 21st at 8 p.m. GMT, and will be available online for 30 days after that, via https://www.bbc.co.uk/programmes/m000pljn
Appearing in the special are Olivia Harrison, Michael Palin, Jools Holland, biographers Graeme Thomson and Joshua M. Greene, keyboardist Bobby Whitlock, drummer Alan White, and guitarist Dave Mason.
Joshua Greene, who appears in the upcoming special, is the author of Here Comes The Sun: The Spiritual And Musical Journey Of George Harrison, and recorded with Harrison in 1970 while a part of the Krishna sect Radha Krishna Temple. He recalled to us how practical Harrison was in the recording studio: “We came in, he said hello to his friends, slapped a few old buddies on the back. Then he started laughing and yukking it up about people's reactions to a rock group with shaved heads — because he was putting out these albums of Sanskrit mantras. Then he looked at his watch and said 'Y'know, we better get started, this studio is costing us 40 pounds an hour.' That was impressive. He might've been a Beatle, he might've been one of the richest, most successful guys around — but he was very practical.”
