Boettcher also had some production involvement I
believe in Bruce Johnston's Goin' Public, which was
recently reissued on Demon records. It's *really* not
worth getting though...

I haven't heard the "Plastic Ono Band" remix/remaster
yet, but check this out. Not only has George Harrison
remixed portions of "All Things Must Pass" for the
reissue coming on Jan. 23, he's even recorded a new
version of "My Sweet Lord." This truly sounds scarey.

George Harrison Records New Music For 'All Things Must
Pass' Reissue (12/7/00, 07 a.m. ET) -George Harrison
kept a fairly low profile since being attacked at his
home last December, but he's ready to share his music
with the world again. Old friend Gary Wright , who's
known Harrison for more than 30 years, told LAUNCH that
the former Beatle has a surprise in store for his fans
in the new year. " George is coming out with a new
version of All Things Must Pass," said Wright. "Some of
the tracks [are] remixed. He re-cut 'My Sweet
Lord'--sounds great, it's a new version of it--and he's
done a whole new re-packaging of it, and it looks great.
It'll be a fun thing." All Things Must Pass, Harrison's
seminal 1970 solo album, will be re-released on January
23. Originally a three-LP set, the new version has two
CDs, and all the music has been remixed by Harrison.
Besides " My Sweet Lord (2000)," the set includes new
liner notes from Harrison and four previously-unissued
tracks--a rough mix of " What Is Life," which Harrison
had forgotten about; " I Live For You," an unreleased
outtake; "Beware Of Darkness," an alternate version of
the song that's missing some of the lyrics; and " Let
It Down," found on the same tape as the new version of
"Beware Of Darkness." The "Original Jam," which filled
both sides of the third record on the 1970 release, is
also featured, and it's been resequenced to follow the
actual order of the recordings. On the original album,
the order was changed to accommodate the time
constraints of the vinyl LP. 

All Things Must Pass was the first solo collection from
one of the Beatles to hit number one on the album chart,
and the original " My Sweet Lord" was the first solo
single from a member of the group to top the pop chart.
The album features contributions from Wright, Ringo
Starr, Eric Clapton, Peter Frampton, Phil Collins, and
Billy Preston, among others, and was produced by Phil

The All Things Must Pass track listing is: 
DISC ONE: "I'd Have You Anytime," "My Sweet Lord,"
"Wah-Wah," "Isn't It A Pity," "What Is Life," "If Not
For You," "Behind That Locked Door," " Let It Down,"
"Run Of The Mill,"and the previously-unreleased "I Live
For You," "Beware Of Darkness," "Let It Down," "What Is
Life,"and "My Sweet Lord (2000)."

DISC TWO: "Beware Of Darkness," "Apple Scruffs,"
"Ballad Of Sir Frankie Crisp (Let It Roll)," "Awaiting
On You All," "All Things Must Pass," "I Dig Love," "Art
Of Dying," "Isn't It A Pity (version two)," "Hear Me
Lord,"and the resequenced "Original Jam"-- "It's
Johnny's Birthday," " Plug Me In," "I Remember Jeep,"
"Thanks For The Pepperoni,"and "Out Of The Blue."

There's also a reggae version which was used on a
commercial a few years back, that my mother's been
trying to track down ever since with no luck...

Hello Brice

Yeah I know the one you mean. There were numerous reggae
versions of this song before the Dawn Penn one, most
notably (to me, anyway) the Big Youth 'toast' on
'Screaming Target'.

The sixties version though, I have on a tape somewhere
and I've no idea who it's by. It was very interesting
for me to hear it for the first time though, as I had
thought that it had always been a reggae track, and
there was this thing with a 'Green Onions'  riff and a
'Hit The Road Jack' type backbeat. It's one of those
white RnB records that's either a bunch of English guys
trying to sound American or a bunch of American guys
trying to sound English (amazing how stylistically
incestuous everyone was back then).

I realise this hasn't been that much help to you, but
that's all I know. If you're desperate, put up a shout
on one of the E groups northern soul lists and somebody
will probably come back to you with everything bar the
drummers inside leg measurement.

Good Luck

I did a disc-ovary project on that Allman Bros jam a
few years back...Its actually a cover of GL Crockett's
obscure 1967 song "It's A Man Down There" which cracked
the Top-40 R&B only...

Could the elusive version be the one by Kaleidoscope on
"A Beacon From Mars".....this is I think still available
on Edsel records....
