Much ado: The new George Harrison compilation

The Best of George Harrison - original US cover for the vinyl edition
The US edition of The Best of George Harrison - a compilation from the mid-seventies.

Contrary to rumours, the new press release from Capitol/EMI about "Let It Roll - The Best of George Harison" shows an unchanged track list, the tracks are exactly like we said in our previous post about the matter.
Anyway, here's the rest of the text from the press release:

The single disc, to be released June 16 (June 15 internationally), includes a 28-page booklet with previously unseen and rare photos plus new liner notes authored by Warren Zanes. The 19 tracks have been digitally remastered by Giles Martin at EMI's Abbey Road Studios. The release will be available in CD and digital formats.

"Let It Roll: Songs by George Harrison is a gathering of material that takes us far into the territory that was ultimately a place unique to George Harrison," writes Warren Zanes in his liner notes essay for the new collection.

"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 says in his liner notes.

George Harrison is a twice-inducted member of the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame, as a member of the Beatles and as a solo artist. He is an 11-time Grammy Award winner for recordings with The Beatles, The Traveling Wilburys and his solo career. On April 14, Harrison was honored with a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame.
