5.0 out of 5 stars A great collection of Songs By George Harrison June 16, 2009
Format:Audio CD
George's widow Olivia had a lot of input into the selection of songs on this album, and it's a good set of songs. Many hard core fans believe this collection should have been a 2 cd set, and should have included songs like "Crackerbox Palace", "Bangla Desh" and "This Song". But, be that as it may, "Let It Roll" is a solid collection of Harrisongs, remastered by Giles Martin, and that's good enough for me.

It may have been helped by the remastering, because the lead song of this new collection (from his "Cloud 9" album) "Got My Mind Set On You" sounds better than ever to me, here. One of the three Harrison #1 singles represented here, this one went to #1 in the U.S. in January of 1988. This was, by the way, the last song by any solo Beatle (up to now, anyway) to go to #1 in the U.S..

"Give Me Love (Give Me Peace On Earth)" was the 2nd Harrison single to go to #1 in the U.S. (June 1973) and features an amazing backup band of Ringo, Klaus Voorman, Gary Wright, Jim Keltner and Nicky Hopkin. One of George's best songs, simple and direct.

"Ballad of Sir Frankie Crisp (Let It Roll)" was one many great songs from George's "All Things Must Pass" 3-lp set which went to #1 in at least half a dozen countries in 1970. Sir Frank Crisp was the former owner of George's home in the U.K. and Mr. Crisp was somewhat of an eccentric and carved sayings into statues and stones around the estate, which apparently gave George great delight. This song is one of the most memorable from "All Things Must Pass" and is a good lead-in to another of George's #1 Hits, "My Sweet Lord".

"My Sweet Lord" is probably George's signature song for various reasons. For one thing, it was his first #1 single, topping the charts all over the world.

5.0 out of 5 stars One of the Greatest ! June 16, 2009
Format:Audio CD
George Harrison, no doubt is ,was , the most underrated single performer in pop music history. (This is my opinion of course). For all those who unfortunately, only see Lennon & McCartney as the Main Beatles, this is testament to my belief. George I feel was the most influential popular artist, quite possibly, of all time. Yet, in such a subtle and unassuming way. He pieced together all the masterpieces that the Beatles wrote and generally gave Beatles songs that Midas touch, that have made them the classics they are. Unfortunately most people remember the players that score the goals, not the workhorses (Dark horses) that make the championships happen. From exotic sounds, diverse chords, 12 string guitars, gorgeous harmonies, inspirational lyrics etc. etc. George's stamp on musical history is phenomenal. And this is in no way exclusive to only Beatles music or fans. Many of the Greats share this sentiment as well .That being said and without overtly trying to convert newer listeners. I feel this newly released set of Solo music has been long, long, long overdue.

This is not a perfect collection. Other writers are absolutely correct, this should have been at least a 2 cd set. His solo catalog deserves that. But for now it will due. Hearing the new remastering of these songs makes this a must set for devotees and newer listeners. Many of the tracks are so crystal clear, you'd think you're in the studio while George was recording them. Yes, some songs for whatever strange reasons are not here. You, Cracker Box Palace, Ding Dong, This Song and quite frankly countless more. But to avoid the negative and to emphasize the positive...

Listeners will be treated to a collection of some of the most inspirational, gorgeous, contagious pop music in history.

I just picked this up and I'm not going to quibble about some of my favs that didn't make the cut...lets just say its a beautiful sounding collection and at 9.99 not only is the audio superb but the glossy full color booklet is also first rate all the way...truly a lovely collection by a lovely man.

I think the video that amazon.com has where Olivia discusses how it was they came up with the title and song list is perfectly stated.

Perfect for my car and I dare say it will be in rotation for a great deal of time.
Let it Roll indeed!

3.0 out of 5 stars Not Really Career-Spanning June 23, 2009
Format:Audio CD
While I enjoy all the music contained on this CD, and the remastering on many of these tracks sounds very good, I have to say that I believe the "career spanning" tag line being used to promote this collection is not just misleading, it is deceptive.

There are a number of LPs from Harrison's library that are completely ignored on "Let It Roll", and a substantial number of songs that charted over the years do not appear here. As other writers have noted, this should have been a two-Cd collection. Among the missing are the following songs: Bangla Desh, You, Dark Horse, Ding Dong, Crackerbox Palace, This Song, Cloud Nine, and Handle With Care.

I am a huge fan of Harrison's and bought this collection despite its shortcomings. After getting halfway through my first listening, I was struck by what a missed opportunity to really have a career-spanning collection this release is.

5.0 out of 5 stars "Let It Roll" July 12, 2009
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
While "Let It Roll," is not a true best of/greatest hit or a complete career-spanning collection---there are too many songs missing for either of those---what it is is a GREAT selection of songs that serve to remind us of just what a great artist George Harrison was. This selection (decided on by George's wife, Olivia) flows beautifully...let it roll...and all the songs fit very niceley together. I love that it is a "complete album" in that the songs are not in chronological order. One just goes with the next and on and on for a great listening experience. George Harrison was, in my opinion, the most inventive, melodic guitarist ever. Period. This collection amply demonstrates that and highlights his song-writing ability as well, just in case people had forgotten about what he did in his life and the music he created.

George's music was a "reality check" for the world
It's great to see a proper George Harrison collection come out. I'll have this in the car along with the recent Ringo collection, the double Lennon best of disk, Paul McCartney Wingspan and the 2 cd import version of The Beatles Rock and Roll Music. Long live the Beatles and the solo material... Read More

What are your 3 favorite songs from "Let It Roll"?
Some might say "This Is Love" is overbearingly pop. It has all the familiar Jeff Lynne production flourishes that I happen to love, but that others are often critical of. At any rate, George's guitar playing is particularly sublime on the track.

I like the live tracks very much, but I... Read More
