“My Sweet Lord” was George Harrison’s coming out party. He had trouble getting his songs onto Beatles albums due to the Lennon and McCartney juggernaut. It seems as if he had all these songs salted away and they were released on ALL THINGS MUST PASS. That album would become a standard of its era as it topped the American charts for seven weeks.
“My Sweet Lord” was the lead single from the album and remains the biggest hit of his career as it topped The American singles charts for four weeks. It may have been spiritual in content but remains instantly recognizable.
