“My Sweet Lord” was released in 1970 on George Harrison’s triple album “All Things Must Pass”. Also was the biggest-selling single of 1971 in the UK.
In America and Britain, the song was the first number-one single by an ex-Beatle.
Harrison originally gave the song to his fellow Apple Records artist Billy Preston to record; this version, which Harrison co-produced, appeared on Preston’s Encouraging Words album in September 1970.
