When it comes to pop music criticism and speaking in absolutes, everything is debatable. And easily one of the most debated topics within pop music criticism is this old chestnut: Which post-Beatles solo album is the best? So yes, while it’s debatable, I’m going to go ahead and definitively answer that question. George Harrison’s 1970 triple album All Things Must Pass is the best post-Beatles solo album. Not Imagine, not Ram, and not even Ringo’s 1999 Christmas album I Wanna Be Santa Claus. Sorry. It’s true. Even though the third LP of All Things — a collection of jams titled “Apple Jam” and featuring the playing of Eric Clapton, among others — wasn’t up to par with the rest of the album, and even though a decade-long lawsuit eventually found that Harrison was guilty of “subconsciously” plagiarizing The Chiffons’ “He’s So Fine” with his leadoff single “My Sweet Lord,” it’s still the best. Between Phil Spector’s monumental production, Harrison’s always-otherworldly guitar playing and the album’s spiritually transcendent lyricism, All Things is awfully close to being the best damn thing anyone’s ever made, former Beatle or no. As far as replicating the album’s top-notch arrangements and playing, that’s certainly a tall order. But if anyone can pull it off, don’t you think it would be The Long Players?
