Another song for our incredible gospel collection from our website - My Sweet Lord, by George Harrison.
George Harrison was an incredible asset for the music industry, acting as a musician, singer, and songwriter.
He was also a film producer and internationally acknowledged as the lead guitarist of The Beatles.
He was called "the quiet Beatle", and he embraced Indian culture, singing their music and also rock and pop music genres.
George Harrison released the free My Sweet Lord piano sheets in November 1970 in the US and in January 1971 in the UK, as part of his album All Things Must Pass, but also as a single, having What Is Life song on its B-side.
The song was George Harrison’s first single as a solo artist and he had amazing success with it, topping the charts everywhere in the world.
The length of the free My Sweet Lord piano sheet music is of 4:39 minutes and it was the biggest-selling single in 1971 in the UK.
When released, the song went straight at number one in America and Britain and what is notable is that My Sweet Lord was the first number-one single by an ex-Beatle.
My Sweet Lord was released as a folk-rock, gospel music genre song, through Apple studios.
It was written by George Harrison and co-produced by Harrison together with Phil Spector.
What makes My Sweet Lord really special is the story behind the lyrics is meant to feel like a call to abandon religious sectarianism through blending the Hebrew word hallelujah with chants of Hare Krishna and Vedic Prayer.
My Sweet Lord has been also covered by other artists and very nice covers are on the market, for example, the one by Billy Preston, from December 1970.
