George Harrison's landmark solo album 'All Things Must Pass' was released 40 years ago today back on November 27, 1970.

'All Things Must Pass' was George's third solo album after the experimental 'Wonderwall Music' and 'Electronic Sound' which came out on Apple during the last phase of The Beatles.

'All Things Must Pass' was his first solo album after the break-up of The Beatles and his first serious attempt at making a commercial album.

The album featured the now classics 'My Sweet Lord' and 'What Is Life'. It was also the first session Phil Collins ever played on. He plays bongos on 'Art of Dying'. (Collins also had a small part in The Beatles 'A Hard Day's Night' movie when he was a kid).

Maurice Gibb also played keyboards on 'Isn't It A Pity' but, like Collins, was uncredited.

The infamous Phil Spector produced the album. Guests included Ringo Starr, Eric Clapton, Billy Preston, Gary Brooker (Procol Harum), Alan White (Yes) and Gary Wright).

To mark the 40th anniversary Apple have released a numbered limited edition 3LP vinyl box set of 'All Things Must Pass' at georgeharrison.com
