All Those Years Ago 45 by George Harrison

May 26, 2011

“All Those Years Ago” was a fitting tribute to the deceased John Lennon from one of his old bandmates. It also included contributions from Ringo Starr and Paul McCatney, which was as close to a Beatles reuniuon as we would ever get.

The single was a big hit in the United States. Released May 23, 1981, it reached number two on the BILLBOARD MAGAZINE Pop Singles Chart for three weeks.

Given the emotional content, it’s a shame it did not reach number one.
