Review: George Harrison - Let It Roll: Songs By George Harrison

George Harrison - Let It Roll: Songs By George Harrison
2009, Capitol/EMI

On June 16, 2009, Capitol/EMI released the first career-spanning collection of hits from two-time Rock N Roll Hall Of Famer George Harrison entitled Let It Roll: Songs By George Harrison. Harrison is a Hall Of Famer as a solo artist as well as for his work as a member of those legendary Liverpoolians The Beatles. Let It Roll encapsulates nineteen of Harrison's best-known songs, all of which were re-mastered for this release by Giles Martin at Abbey Road Studios.

Let It Roll opens with Got My Mind Set On You, perhaps the best known of Harrison's songs to the under-35 set. The song has a distinctive Beatles feel to it and was something of a return to his roots for Harrison. Let It Roll also contains three other #1 hits, My Sweet Lord, Isn't It A Pity and Give Me Love (Give Me Peace On Earth). Also featured are live versions of While My Guitar Gently Weeps, Something and Here Comes The Sun performed live from his 1971 Concert For Bangladesh. Other highlights include All Things Must Pass, Rising Sun, When We Was Fab and Isn't It A Pity.

George Harrison has 11-Grammy's on his shelf for his work with The Beatles and The Traveling Wilburys as well as for his solo work. Let It Roll: Songs By George Harrison is a snapshot of his solo catalogue and, if anything, shows that eleven might not have been enough. Let It Roll is the perfect introduction to George Harrison if you somehow are not familiar with his solo work, and a wonderful set of memories if you've been following along.

Rating: 4 Stars (Out of 5)

Oh my goodness I love that song, Let It Roll sounded on the radio some time ago and everybody liked it. I'm in sorely need to listen to it again, it inspires me to work faster, at my labor schedule.
