Just a couple weeks ago, we learned that Paul McCartney would be releasing his remastered Band on the Run album as a High Resolution (24bit 96kHz) download, and now George Harrison’s estate is doing the same thing with All Things Must Pass for its 40th anniversary on November 26. No word on whether you’ll be able to get versions with and without peak limiting like you can with Band on the Run, but the fact that hi-res audio is becoming de rigueur from the Apple/Abbey Road team is surely a good sign.
In addition to the digital download, All Things Must Pass will be also released on 180-gram vinyl in its original three-LP configuration, remastered at Abbey Road Studios from the original analog master tapes.

i like that it’s only available at record store day participating retailers. very cool.
i have a old scratch vinyl version. i love it just the way it is… pops, hisses, and all.
Does anyone know if this re-issue will have the custom orange Apple label on the records themselves??
Petey: I have a new copy and the labels are EXACTLY like the originals. LP 1 and 2 have the red-orange label and LP3 has the Apple Jam label. Also, there is no disclaimer that says “Mastered from a digital source for the best quality sound.” It sounds to me as if it was mastered on all analogue equipment. (Vinyl lovers prefer analogue remasters. But the LPs sound great–buy one–don’t miss out.
