Released on 15 June 2009 in the UK and one day later in the US, this third compilation from George spent eight weeks in the UK charts, peaking at number 4, whilst in the US it reached number 24 during a fourteen weeks stay. One of the weeks spent in the UK charts was at number 74 in March 2011, nearly two years after it’s original release. All nineteen tracks have been digitally remastered by Giles Martin.
George’s own website describes Let It Roll as “the first hits collection to span George’s entire solo recording career” but only six of his ten studio albums are represented, Dark Horse, Extra Texture, Thirty Three & 1/3 and Gone Troppo being the ones to miss out. Three Beatles tracks are included on the compilation but are taken from the Concert For Bangladesh recordings rather than the Beatles studio albums.
The UK release is on Dark Horse/Parlophone/Apple with catalogue number 695 0192 whilst the US release is on Dark Horse/Capitol/Apple with catalogue number 50999 9 65019 24. The CD is housed in a digipak and comes with a 28 page booklet containing previously unseen photos and liner notes written by Warren Zanes.
The pictures below are of my UK release. The digipak, CD and booklet are all in more thanexcellent condition.
