Released on 20 April 1979 in the UK and 11 May 1979 in the US, Love Comes To Everyone was the second single taken from the George Harrison album and unfortunately failed to chart in both countries. It was actually George’s first choice to be the lead single from the album, until the catchier Blow Away was chosen, and bears a lower catalogue number to Blow Away. The label for the single says “Edited from the LP….”, rather than “Taken from the LP….”, as this single version clocks in at 3.35 which is a minute shorter than the album version of 4.36.
Amongst the musicians who appear on the track are Steve Winwood, who plays the moog and provides backing vocals, and Eric Clapton, who provides the guitar intro. Eric went on to cover the track on his 2005 Back Home album as a tribute to George.
The pictures below are of my solid centre first press copy (there were no push out centre copies) which has the matrix numbers K-17284-A1 and K-17284-B1. It also has
GH1 A-1 S-1 hand etched on the A side and S-2 GH1 B-1 hand etched on the B side. A hand etched STRAWBERRY also appears in the run off on both sides which means it was mastered at Strawberry Studios which was owned by Eric Stewart and Graham Gouldman of 10cc and named after Eric’s favourite Beatle song Strawberry Fields Forever. The record has the odd hardly noticable mark but is in excellent condition, playing through beautifully on both sides. It is housed in WEA single sleeve (there were no picture sleeves for this single) which is in very good condition, just a little shelf wear.
Estimated Value : £5 – £10
