A chart-topper in the US and the UK, “My Sweet Lord” remains one of George’s most instantly recognizable songs. Unfortunately, some recognized in its harmonies the old Chiffons’ hit “He’s So Fine” and in 1976 George was successfully sued for plagiarism. The flip side, “Isn’t It A Pity,” stands as one of the sleeper tracks from the forthcoming All Things Must Pass. Both versions on the single are identical to the elpee versions. “My Sweet Lord” has been reissued over the years, most recently in 2002 as a benefit for charity.
