For the 50th anniversary, George Harrison's classic "All Things Must Pass" will be remixed and released in various deluxe editions - albeit with a one-year delay due to corona. Responsible for the remix was British sound engineer Paul Hicks, who had previously been involved in the arrangement of the tracks for the John Lennon retrospective "Gimme Some Truth", among others. On top of that, Hicks is good friends with Harrison's son Dhani, with whom he played in a band for a long time. We talked to him about the sense and nonsense of remixing a classic and the disadvantages of Phil Spector's production method.
eclipsed: Do you remember your first encounter with George Harrison's album "All Things Must Pass"?
After the failed attempt to rekindle the old fire during the "Get Back" sessions, the Beatles experienced a rapid process of disintegration: the cracks that had already opened up during the "White Album" became bigger and bigger. The separation in April 1970 led to chaos: The creative couple Lennon/McCartney was history, friendships were broken, but at the same time the four musicians were still contractually bound to each other. How did it continue for them? How can their solo work of the 70s be assessed from today's perspective? eclipsed tells the story of the end of the world's most famous band and a diverse new beginning.
Not only the Rolling Stones have been in the business for half a century, Eric Clapton also celebrates his 50th anniversary as a member of the Yardbirds: The guitarist's first professional engagement took place in October 1963. It was the beginning of a long journey that led him again and again to Crossroads, and it was the years in which he set the course for his unique career, which is still valid today.
