“George got stuck with being the Beatle that had to fight to get songs on records because of Lennon and McCartney. Well, who wouldn’t get stuck? If George had had his own group and was writing his own songs back then, he’d have been probably just as big as anybody.” — Bob Dylan

If you wanted to get a recommendation from a single songwriter in the world of music, then Bob Dylan would likely be your first port of call. George Harrison, who had struggled for years to make a sincere impact from within The Beatles, was one such lucky songwriter to enjoy the freewheelin’ troubadour’s praise. The singer and songwriter was an artist waiting to explode from the Fab Four cocoon when the band broke up in 1970. Emerging as a beautiful pop-wielding butterfly, Harrison would shake off his ‘Quiet Beatle’ moniker and quickly assert himself as one of the finest songwriters in the world with his solo album All Things Must Pass.

The record would outsell much of the other Beatles’ efforts and confirm what Bob Dylan already knew: George Harrison was a supremely gifted songwriter. Of course, there were moments when this truth was exposed to the wind. Songs like ‘Taxman’ hinted at a surge of songs in 1966, but it would take until 1969’s Abbey Road before Harrison really hit his stride with songs like ‘Here Comes The Sun’ and ‘Something’ now considered two of the band’s finest efforts.
