ALBUM REVIEW: The Beatles - George Harrison Has a New Remixed Best-Of Album

By Jarrett S Newton

Just released last June, Let It Roll's unique packaging includes a 28-page booklet featuring previously unreleased and unique photos, and freshly penned liner notes by Warren Zanes. The collection's nineteen songs were reworked by Giles Martin (George Martin's son) at Abbey Road, and is out in CD and MP3 formats.

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

This Greatest Hits Collection is the 1st to include George's entire solo period , including the #1 Billboard Pop tracks Isn't It A Pity, Got My Mind Set On You, Give Me Love, and "My Sweet Lord. Let It Roll also has concert recordings of 3 timeless songs written by George, Here Comes The Sun, Something, plus While My Guitar Gently Weeps from his early 70s star studded Concert For Bangladesh benefit at Madison Square Garden.

"The keyhole into the world of George Harrison is the music itself. Yet his songs and the accomplishments for which he's remembered are inextricably bound-and those accomplishments are, without question, eclectic in scope," says the album liner notes.

George Harrison has been inducted in the Rock Hall of Fame twice, as a solo artist and as a member of The Beatles, plus he has one 11 Grammy Awards for his carreer with The Beatles, Traveling Wilburys, and as a solo artist. You can find Harrison's new star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame since last April.

The greatest hit's package is an fantastic collection of hits that show just the talent of the former Beatle. It skillfully shows just how much he grew as a songwriter after the Beatles and what a great, musically rich guitar player he was. The songs were personally selected by George's widow Olivia. The hits collection was painstakingly remixed by the son of George Martin, Giles.
