New George Harrison CD June 16th


EMI/Capitol has revealed the tracks on the forthcoming "best of" George Harrison CD, Let It Roll
1. Got My Mind Set On You
2. Give Me Love (Give Me Peace On Earth)
3. The Ballad Of Sir Frankie Crisp (Let It Roll)
4. My Sweet Lord
5. While My Guitar Gently Weeps (Live - Concert For Bangladesh Soundtrack)
6. All Things Must Pass
7. Any Road
8. This Is Love
9. All Those Years Ago
10. Marwa Blues
11. What Is Life
12. Rising Sun
13. When We Was Fab
14. Something (Live - Concert For Bangladesh Soundtrack)
15. Blow Away
16. Cheer Down
17. Here Comes The Sun (Live - Concert For Bangladesh Soundtrack)
18. I Don't Want To Do It
19. Isn't It A Pity

Gee, I don't know. It's cool that they found a space for "I Don't Want To Do It", but there are too many good songs missing here. Where are Bangla Desh, You, This Song, Crackerbox Palace, Dark Horse, This Guitar (Can't Keep From Crying), Ding dong ding dong, Sue Me Sue You Blues etc etc? Looks like we still need the old "Best of George Harrison" for Bangla Desh etc. and "The Best of Dark Horse" for Cockamamie Business and Poor Little Girl. And we were thinking EMI/Capitol may have brought us a CD with rarities like Ride Rajbun, I Don't Care Anymore, the remastered Save The World, the Platinum Weird This Guitar and stuff. I guess as fans we are disappointed, but this release is of course aimed at the general public. My bet's they're gonna miss Bangla Desh too.
However, Tower Records in Japan has a slightly different track listing on their site, which may mean there are differences, depending which country's edition you'll be getting. The first four tracks are the same, but then there's:
5. This Song (instead of While My Guitar Gently Weeps)
6. While My Guitar Gently Weeps (instead of All Things Must Pass)
Tracks 7 through 9 are the same.
10. What Is Life (instead of Marwa Blues)
11. Rising Sun (instead of What Is Life)
12. When We Was Fab (instead of Rising Sun)
13. Something (instead of When We Was Fab)
14. Blow Away (instead of Something)
15. Cheer Down (instead of Blow Away)
16. Here Comes the Sun (instead of Cheer Down)
17. I Don't Want to Do It (instead of Here Comes the Sun)
18. All Things Must Pass (instead of I Don't Want to Do It)
Track 19 is the same.
Hey Jude danish 45
This 1968 Hey Jude/Revolution 45 from Denmark used the same picture of George as on the new CD release.


The new CD will be available one day early in the UK, June 15th, and probably even earlier in Germany (as usual).
