Without a doubt, Harrison
's first solo recording, originally issued as a triple album, is his best. Drawing on his backlog of unused compositions from the late Beatles
crafted material that managed the rare feat of conveying spiritual mysticism without sacrificing his gifts for melody and grand, sweeping arrangements. Enhanced by Phil Spector
's lush orchestral production and Harrison
's own superb slide guitar, nearly every song is excellent: "Awaiting on You All," "Beware of Darkness," the Dylan
collaboration "I'd Have You Anytime," "Isn't It a Pity," and the hit singles "My Sweet Lord" and "What Is Life" are just a few of the highlights.
