New George Harrison best-of CD collection on the way

Let It Roll: The Music of George Harrison, a new compilation of the former Fab's best work will be out June 16, Rolling Stone reports.

All the tracks on Let It Roll will be digitally remastered and assembled in deluxe packaging with rare and unseen photographs. The album will also be released digitally. According to the press release, Harrison’s solo hits “My Sweet Lord,” “Isn’t It A Pity,” “Give Me Love (Give Me Peace On Earth)” and “Got My Mind Set On You” will all be included on the set, and you can assume the collection’s namesake track, All Things Must Pass‘ “Let It Roll,” will also make the cut. Three of Harrison’s most popular songs that he penned for the Beatles are also on the track list: “Something,” “While My Guitar Gently Weeps” and “Here Comes The Sun” from Harrison’s 1971 Concert For Bangladesh from New York’s Madison Square Garden. The full track list is expected to be announced soon.

NPR recounts the troubled, and troubling, career of record producer and convicted second-degree murderer Phil Spector.

Long before the jury's final verdict, Spector had vanished from the music industry. He hadn't completed an album since the 1970s. But it almost didn't matter. Spector produced some of the greatest recordings of the 20th century — with Ike and Tina Turner, The Ronettes, The Beatles and many others — but his work was always colored by his mental state.
