George Harrison - All Things Must Pass
LG: That’s the best post-Beatles album. We all like it and that, but that was the best sounding fucking one. It’s got tunes that make me cry.

AB: Everything that’s on it has a warm Wall-Of-Sound feeling to it because Phil Spector produced it and it has amazing songs like ‘Wah-Wah’, ‘Isn’t It A Pity’ and ‘My Sweet Lord’. I can relate to George Harrison but I’m not going to make a triple album.

LG: But triple albums are too much. They’re stupid, aren’t they? Even double albums are too much.

AB: There are plenty of doubles that do work: Exile On Main Street, Electric Ladyland

LG: You’ve just got to cut it off, man.
