« on: April 15, 2009, 01:26:46 AM »


Capitol/EMI Announces Global Release of George Harrison's First Ever Career-Spanning Solo Hits Collection, 'Let It Roll: Songs By George Harrison,' on June 16

CD and Digital Collection Features Harrison's Solo Hits, Remastered, Plus Live Recordings from 1971 Concert For Bangladesh

George Harrison Honored Today with Hollywood Walk of Fame Star Presentation

HOLLYWOOD, Calif., April 14 /PRNewswire/ -- As music legend George Harrison is celebrated today with a new star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame in Los Angeles, Capitol/EMI announces Harrison's first ever career-spanning solo hits collection, Let It Roll: Songs by George Harrison. To be released June 16, the new title will feature digitally remastered tracks in deluxe packaging, including an extensive booklet featuring previously unseen and rare photos. The collection will also be available for download from all major digital service providers.

Let It Roll: Songs by George Harrison is the first release that will span his entire solo recording career, including the #1 Billboard Pop singles "My Sweet Lord," "Isn't It A Pity," "Give Me Love (Give Me Peace On Earth)," and "Got My Mind Set On You." The new title will also feature live recordings of three 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 complete track list will soon be announced.

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.

Yes, that was to be expected. By the way, I never knew that Isn't It A Pity was a Billboard #1.

Wonder if there's going to be any lost tunes or jewels on this best of?

If you go to the forum on George's site, there are links stating that the album will include a "rarity".  Nothing specific though.

Hmm, I'd be interested in the "rarity". I have George's complete oeuvre; but it's nice to see something new coming out.

The rarity might be the trigger for people to buy such a compilation. Like you said, most of the fans have the complete catalogue and a new 'best of' might add nothing songwise. I'm usually not very interested in 'best of' compilations for this reason.

I'll still buy it, it has all those rare photos and maybe the rarity is something that hasn't been released.

This is supposed to be a "best of" album and there are just 19 songs?  And no "Wah-Wah"?  I'm disappointed, sorry. :(
