Act Two Scene Two Rolls 21-A + 54-B

This roll contains a most heartfelt, ethereal, and celestial sounding version of All Things Must Pass featuring George and John. One can easily imagine that George has already mastered how he wants to sing the song, and does so, on this take, with great passion and depth.

He is essentially reaching deep into John's soul, almost putting him into a hypnotic trance. John finally reaches the center of the song, and his organ becomes vapor-like, drifting thru and encircling the song within a lovely atmosphere. It may remind one of the mellotron flutes that form the intro to Strawberry Fields Forever.
And all this is only the first performance of this delightful roll.  This is when the Beatles begin to understand and to feel "All Things Must Pass".
