While it’s generally accepted that George Harrison bloomed late as a Beatles songwriter, there’s no denying it was worth the wait. The release of All Things Must Pass, in 1970, was like unstopping a bottle. An ambitious triple-album, it set the template for the nine studio albums that would follow, the first of which was 1973’s compelling, Living In The Material World, released in the wake of his pioneering charity work with The Concert for Bangladesh. The album and its lead single, “Give Me Love (Give Me Peace On Earth)” both reached No. 1 in America and on charts around the world. Harrison themed the earnest collection around his eternal quest for spiritual enlightenment saying, “What we need isn’t material, it’s spiritual. We need some other form of peace and happiness.” The spiritual nature of Living In The Material World, described by Rolling Stone as “miraculous in its radiance,” is also reflected in the album’s iconic artwork illustration from the Bhagavad-Gita.
