The quality of the writing and the marriage of the instruments create an inviting state of peace for the listener. To close your eyes and drift into a deep appreciation for the lyrics, provides an opportunity to hear what really matters, giving of one self, giving back. The musical selection also let's you know through the journey of the music that life is never complete, the journey never ends, "look out kid it's what you did".

First off I have all but one of these songs on various Harrison CD's. However, to get these songs remastered and in this package is still a good thing. The bonus track, "I don't want to do it", a Bob Dylan song he gave to George back in the late sixties, is the only song I don't have on CD. I still have the album it came from, believe it or not, it's a "Porky's" film that this song surfaced back in the eighties. Notable because George didn't play guitar on it, the guitar you hear is one Dave Edmunds! Beyond that the disc is full of great songs. The Beatles songs of Georges that are here are from the landmark live "Concert for Bangladesh". George's guitar sound is singular in tone and scope. I miss him as a performer and artist. Wish I could turn the clock back, when I listen to these songs I almost can.

I bought the George Harrison album "Let It Roll", even though I have all the tracks on it because I wanted the demo version of "Isn't It A Pity". I was disappointed to find that THAT version was only available on iTunes and ONLY if you bought the entire album, minus the packaging! I'm getting tired of all these corporate "tricks" to secure my hard-earned dollars. I know times are tough, but corporations should not abuse their fan base! g.moore

When at age 6 I fell for the Music not the 'Guys' in the 'Fab Four'. Just knew like the baby I was they had an 'It' Factor.Later, when I heard,"Hear Comes the Sun", This Was so Happy! Smiling thru Tears of a tough day, all Made Sense. Now, Every Time this song is played, tho' infrequently on radio, I smile in Spite of the tears streaming down my face.Dearest George, Your Soul is singing the sweetest songs as an Angel now. Thank You...

Longtime fans get tossed a small bone in the form of "I Don't Want To Do It." It's tasty, but it's not nearly enough. There are other Harrison rarities that could've / should've been here, including "Flying Hour" and "Sat Singing." Four of Harrison's studio albums (including one bonafied classic) are not represented here at all. That means no "Crackerbox Palace," no "This Song" (among other deserving songs). On the other hand, we get three tracks from 'Concert For Bangla Desh.' Yes, I know - it was probably the only way to include some of George's Beatles material, but I think it was a dubious decision. A George Harrison collection can stand quite sturdily on its own without the inclusion of Beatles-era songs. What's here is mostly wonderful, but if Capitol Records and the Harrison estate had wanted to do it just right this collection would have been a two-disc set of hits, album tracks, and rarities. As a single disc it's incomplete and will probably appeal mainly to casual fans.

George was largely underestimated as a songwriter and performer. In my opinion, this was largely because he did record a few heavy and basically dull albums in the late 70's. George fans should play this album for friends so that thay may realize George's talent. My one gripe is the inclusion of 4 live tracks of songs recorded with the Beatles. The producers should have stuck with George's post Beatle career and not left out such gems as "Wah Wah" and "Don't Let Me Wait too Long"

A reprise of some of his greatest Beatles hits that bring back wonderful memories. Another reason why they were and are the greatest and most creative musical group of all time

George was and remains a great songwriter and truly missed. It is just so great to have all his hits on one CD. "Heavens got one hell of a band."
