Detail : George's third "greatest hits" or "best of" collection, but the first to span his entire solo recording career.
The collection's 19 tracks have been digitally remastered by Giles Martin at EMI's Abbey Road Studios, and is available in CD and digital download formats.
Let It Roll, of course, includes George's smash two-times number 1 single "My Sweet Lord", plus 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 Bangla Desh benefit at Madison Square Garden.
There is also one surprise track, "I Don't Want To Do It" which was performed by George on the Porky's Revenge soundtrack.
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 - an 11-time Grammy Award winner for his recordings with The Beatles, Traveling Wilburys, and as a solo artist. Plus on April 14 George was honoured with a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame in Los Angeles.

The compact disc comes in a digipack sleeve, with a stiff card inner sleeve.

"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," Zanes writes.

The album entered the U.K. album chart on 21st June 2009 at no.4
28th June 2009 - Second week in the chart and this album dropped eight places to no.12

19th July 2009 - Fifth week in the album chart and another drop from 47 down to number 68.

2nd August 2009 - Last mention of chart position, down from 85 to the final position of number 100.

"There never was a time when you or I did not exist.
Nor will there be any future when we shall cease to be.
