Notes:
All Things Must Pass is a triple album by George Harrison. Recorded and released in 1970, the album was Harrison's first solo work since the break-up of The Beatles in April that year. The original vinyl release featured two LPs of rock songs as well as Apple Jam, a third disc of informal jams. Often credited as rock's first triple album, it was in fact the first by a single act, the multi-artist Woodstock live set having preceded it by six months.

In regards to the album's size, Harrison stated: "I didn't have many tunes on Beatles records, so doing an album like All Things Must Pass was like going to the bathroom and letting it out.

The album was critically acclaimed and, with long stays at number 1 in both the US and the UK, commercially successful. It was certified 6x platinum by the Recording Industry Association of America in 2001.

A beautiful job was done here replicating Harrison's masterpiece, right down to the hinged box, the inner sleeve's 70's esque' colors and texture, the Apple hype-sticker, and the quiet spirit of the original release. The subtle remastering is not quite as "airy" and separated as the original U.K. 1u's mastering, but it retains the warmth and most of the detail making it faithful enough-most won't be able to tell the difference. The actual pressing of the record is questionable as far as quality control, there were lots of complaints that the records came with sleeve-sweeps and were noisy, mine certainly was.

My personal 'Y ending' copy differs from the above description in that it has for side 4: Matrix / Runout: 04 708 B - 1 (and not 2)
and for side 6: Matrix / Runout: 04 709 B - 1

Labels cover at least half of each matrix stamp.

Sounds slightly worse than it should; some things are quiet in the mix. Mine is in very good shape and it only sounds OK
The sleeve is very cool; riddled with mispellings.On the label, Track 1 "Id have you anytime" is labled "I'd have you anything". On the back outer sleeve tracklisting ("let it rill" instead of "let it roll"). The inner/outer sleeves and musician listing looks like it was all made on a typewriter. Sleeve is flimsy paper in cellophane; very cool if it's in good shape. These are hard to find in good condition due to the low quality sleeve; if you find one, grab it. Word has it these were made to sell to US soldiers stationed in Taiwan during the Vietnam War; to have one brought back to the states in good condition is very rare; hard to put a price on that

I have a version with the orange apple showing on both sides of 1/2 and 3/4 i.e. the half cut white apple is not used. Does anyone have any ideas as to which UK release this is as I haven't found a match.

Audio quality-wise, this ranks up there with the UK pressing as one of the best sounding vinyl versions available (some however give the nod to the German version). Prices for the Japanese first issue are surprisingly all over the map but this may be attributed to the steep fall in valuation early Japanese pressings experienced since more and more started becoming available on eBay from 2000 onwards (compare the prices first given in Jason Anjoorian's price guide in the 90's to the 'peanut' prices achieved today). It's not much different in Japan as well. I was shocked to find a red first pressing in great condition (the gold spine alone was a sight to behold and made me desire it immediately before I even understood that it was a red original) offered at disk union in Tokyo for less than the price of postage to Europe. Meanwhile, UK pressings of ATMP were offered for 10 times as much and more.

Also came with the poster (with 'AP-9016C' text in lower left-hand corner).

The Obi of the first edition was green with the apple on top wider than its borders. This type of Obi was used for Apple releases between 1969 and 1972. I have a suspicion that the first pressing came in red PVC only. In order to confirm this, it would help to know how to distinguish the first pressings from the later ones. I found one old auction post on popsike showing such a first edition Obi version with what to me looks like black vinyl discs but the text mentions "red vinyl" - so, this maybe due to the lighting presenting a red wax LP as a black one.

Second editions came with a "Beatles Forever" obi, as wide as the apple, and came on black vinyl only.
"This style Obi came into use in late 1972(?) to promote all Beatles releases then currently on the Apple label. It is a wide Obi characterized by the Apple logo at the top, the words "The Beatles Forever" at the bottom, and has a dark green background.

On 1st October 1973, Toshiba Musical Industries Ltd. was changed its name to Toshiba EMI Ltd.
So, there were two kind of Obis --the "Toshiba Musical..." version and the "Toshiba EMI..." version. [source: yokono.co.uk]"

The U.K. pressing of George's CLASSIC 3 LP set has excellent sound with slightly warm midrange and very smooth treble, especially the pressings with earliest "1U" matrix stamps. The UK pressing has a great balance of transparency and ambient, "spacious"sound-staging & imaging. However, the U.K. pressings I have owned suffer from noisy vinyl even on totally mint copies- surface noise that on at least one copy that I gave to my teen son was quite intrusive, spoiling the delicacy of some passages. I DID finally locate a UK "1U" matrix example that had the great sound AND only minor (but present) vinyl noise. The 1st German pressing, 192 04 707/8/9 Y, has a WONDERFUL, ambient, almost holographic depth and presence in the upper mids and treble. Amazing, 3-D imaging with the German pressing; Not quite as transparent as the U.K., but the earliest German pressings of "All Things Must Pass" may well be the very best sounding of ANY. I hate to use the phrase "tube sound" but the German pressed LP set has the clear sonic stamp of top grade electron tube mastering equipment on all 3 LPs. The BOX for the German pressing is superior also; the cover photo is printed on CANVAS rather than paper, is taller and wider to better accommodate the poster and 3 LPs. The German has quiet, top grade vinyl as well. The only other pressing that competes with the German issue is the red vinyl first pressing from Japan. The later black vinyl is not as good as the amazing burgundy vinyl of the AP 9106C Japanese 1st issue. This Japanese 1st pressing has the best transparency, but may be a bit "analytical" on some systems... detracting from the overall sonic "picture" created by the music. However, the Japanese red vinyl pressing has unusually laid-back, relaxed treble, warm midrange, and very well-defined bass. If you use vacuum tube audio gear, the red vinyl Japanese may suit you best. For others-- the German 1C 192-04 707-8-9 Y pressing is the best choice.

these weren't limited to 5000 pressed.. unless the numbering doesn't in fact reflect the correct pressing info. i've laid eyes on 3 copies (#'d 5001, 5188, 5193) can anyone shed any light on that?
