Comments: Nice compilation of demos for Harrison's "All Things Must Pass" album. In 1970, George Harrison, wanting to prove the Beatles had held him back as a songwriter, immediately began work on a triple-album once the Beatles' demise was announced. He enlisted producer Phil Spector to produce the album and in May recorded a set of demos for Phil Spector. During the recording of the demos, George Harrision changed a line in the song "Beware of Darkness" to "Beware of ABKCO" (Allan B Klein Company).

Below are the words in one of the songs referring to ABKCO:

Beware of Darkness

"Beware of Darkness"

Watch out now, Take care 
Beware of falling swingers 
Falling all around you 
The pain that often Lingers 
In your fingertips 
Beware of darkness

Watch out now, Take care 
beware the thoughts that linger, 
Winding up inside your head. 
The hopelessness around you 
in the dead of night, 
Beware of Sadness.

It can hit you, 
It will hurt you, 
Aching more 
and make you sore 
And that is not 
what you are here for.

Watch out now, 
Take care 
beware of soft shoe shufflers, 
Dancing down the sidewalks. 
Pushing you in puddles
in the dead of night, 
Beware of ABKCO.

Watch out now, 
Take care 
beware of falling swingers, 
Crashing all around you 
The pain that often lingers
in your fingertips, 
Beware of Darkness
