Beatles History: All Things Must Pass and My Sweet Lord Hit # 1 in UK

On January 30, 1971, George Harrison's single "My Sweet Lord" and his double LP All Things Must Pass reached the number one spot on British music charts. "My Sweet Lord" was featured on All Things Must Pass. The pertinent Beatles fact was that the double album signified that Harrison was an accomplished songwriter who had stood in the shadow of the Lennon-McCartney franchise for so many years. Before his death, George stated in many interviews that he had been accumulating a backlog of songs in the latter days of the Beatles. In the post-Beatles era, his talent blossomed even more.
