Product description

Product Description

Let It Roll: Songs By George Harrison features solo hits from 1970’s All Things Must Pass through 2002’s Brainwashed plus live recordings from 1971's Concert For Bangladesh.

This first-ever career-spanning solo hits collection (on CD and digitally) contains 19 tracks that have been selected by Olivia Harrison and digitally remastered by Giles Martin at EMI’s Abbey Road Studios. The CD’s special packaging was designed by Olivia Harrison and includes a 28-page booklet featuring previously unseen and rare photos, and newly-written liner notes.

Featuring classic singles such as “My Sweet Lord,” “Give Me Love (Give Me Peace On Earth),”  “Got My Mind Set On You" and "When We Was Fab", the new title also features live recordings of three timeless Harrison-penned Beatles songs, “Something,” “While My Guitar Gently Weeps,” and “Here Comes The Sun,” from his 1971 all-star Concert For Bangladesh benefit at Madison Square Garden.

The album also contains two rare recordings:  "Cheer Down" (co-written with Tom Petty) from the Lethal Weapon 2 soundtrack and "I Don't Want To Do It" (written but never recorded by Bob Dylan) which featured in the lost classic, Porky's Revenge.

“Let It Roll: Songs by George Harrison is a gathering of material that takes us far into the territory that was ultimately a place unique to George Harrison,” writes Warren Zane in his liner notes essay for the new collection.

George Harrison is a twice-inducted member of the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame, as a solo artist and as a member of The Beatles, and an 11-time Grammy Award winner for his recordings with The Beatles, Traveling Wilburys and as a solo artist.  He left a giant shadow across the musical and cultural landscape and this album celebrates one aspect of his artistic vision.

BBC Review

George Harrison is the most deserving of all the Beatles for an anthology such as this. Apart from 1976's Best Of George Harrison, and its sister Best Of Dark Horse from 1989, there has never been a complete Harrison collection. An artist who could hardly be defined by his sporadic hits, his albums were often dismissed as the work of a rich man hanging out with his chums, which was often indeed true, but was to sell him cruelly short.

Decanting his work to a single disc would always be a controversial operation, and Let It Roll will spark some controversy. There is another album to have Dark Horse, Hear Me Lord, I'd Have You Anytime, You and Pure Smokey to name but a handful on it. But this isn't it.

Let It Roll is pretty great summation of the man's work. It's frequently tender and spiritual (and, on 2002's Marwa Blues, both), keening and heartfelt. You hear My Sweet Lord and Give Me Love and recall just how ubiquitous they were if you grew up in the 70s. Got My Mind Set On You had a similar relationship to the 80s, and Any Road from Brainwashed to the 00s, as it seems to be played on Terry Wogan's BBC Radio 2 show in the UK every morning.

The Concert For Bangladesh recordings of Here Comes The Sun (almost better than the original), While My Guitar Gently Weeps and Something will placate the Beatles-curious; but the scene stealers are Isn't It A Pity and the title track from his masterpiece All Thing Must Pass. Few singers can encapsulate hope and despair like Harrison does on these tracks from 1970.

With key album tracks and singles and remastered by Giles Martin, Let It Roll is a celebration of one of the finest and most underrated soulful voices of his generation. And that's before we've even mentioned his guitar work . . . --Daryl Easlea
