So those are all the really bad parts of the album, and you may be expecting a zero rating after all the bashing I have done. Surprisingly passionate middle eight on the song, I really love that too.
Too bad the band seemed to do more toking than thinking when they wrote a lot of their songs. The perfect song to drift off to sleep to after listening to the album late at night. His flute work on this song is outstanding, the opening flute flourishes give the song its introspective edge.
One of their all-time best songs, perhaps one of the very best examples of each member of the band firing on all cylinders, and this song alone is worth the price of the purchase.
The 50th Anniversary release of In Search of the Lost Chord has a new remix that is absolutely stunning.
If you are going to listen to the album, the new stereo remix is the way to go, unless you are into surround sound, then the new 5. The recent remixes of Sgt. I live for the day we get a good remix of Revolver , and would literally kill just about anyone on the planet for a good remix of All Things Must Pass.
We music lovers should do everything we can to support the trend for remixing classic Sixties albums, in my opinion, because I feel it does so much to improve the listening experience, memories of the original mixes be damned. You still have the original mixes, you can still listen to them if you want. We are blessed to live in a an age when skipping the weak tracks on an album is far more easily accomplished than the days when vinyl ruled the world, and with a few surgical excisions, ISOTLC becomes a remarkable, even crucial listening experience.
Skip a few tracks for the sake of your ears, but make sure you give the rest a good listen sometime before you die.
