Hey, Troll, you made a mistake, this is not a poppy pic. ;-)

You sound like Rahad Jackson (Alfred Molina) in Boogie Nights.

Alright. There's nothing we can do about it anymore. Sure, we can hope for a special edition 2-disc release to come out in a few months, but the most likely event is that the 1 disc track list we see will be the only incarnation of the Let It Roll compilation. So, that leaves us with a few options: 1. We can complain about the track list, which I have done plenty of already 2. We can look at the pros of the track list. Which I am going to do right now: I like to make mix CDs for my friends, to get them more into an artist. And when I make a CD for them, I do not make a track list that is exclusively the hits. I know that some artists have massive hit singles that aren't nearly as good as some of their lesser-known album cuts. Or at least, my favourites aren't always the hits. For example, if I make a Beatles mix for someone, I will always include the "Golden Slumbers" medley, "I Will," "Blackbird," "And I Love Her," "Here Comes the Sun," "While My Guitar Gently Weeps," "Across the Universe," and "Dear Prudence," among other non-hits. I will also include some of my favourite massive hits like "Hey Jude," "Let It Be," and "Something." I will also include a number of Beatles songs that, even though I wouldn't consider my favourite, I know were important songs in the Beatles' catalog: "A Day in the Life," "Yesterday," "Come Together," etc. I will also leave off plenty of big hits--"The Ballad of John and Yoko," "From Me to You," "Love Me Do," "The Long and Winding Road"--that I do not think would make my friend a big fan as much as other songs could. All this being said, I realized that if I were to make a mix CD of George Harrison for one of my friends to get them into his music, I probably would also leave off "Bangla Desh," "Dark Horse," "You," "This Song," and maybe even "Crackerbox Palace." I would have to include all of the songs that my friend would instantly recognize: "My Sweet Lord," "Got My Mind Set On You," "What Is Life," "Give Me Love," "All Those Years Ago." I would also want to make the connection that George wrote the wonderful Beatles songs "Something," "Here Comes the Sun," and "While My Guitar Gently Weeps." "Handle with Care" and "End of the Line" would also be nice representations of his musical career, however, if we're sticking to songs billed as "George Harrison," we can live without the Wilburys cuts. In my opinion, you can never have too many All Things Must Pass songs on an introduction to his career. All of the songs are gems, and you can be guaranteed that "Isn't It a Pity" and "All Things Must Pass" would make my list. "Ballad of Sir Frankie Crisp" is one of many songs that also works, just because it is so beautiful (I may have picked "Awaiting on You All" or "Beware of Darkness" before "Frankie Crisp," but like I said, there are many great songs on that LP). I've always thought that "Stuck Inside a Cloud" was a funny choice as the first promotional single for Brainwashed, and that "Rising Sun" was the standout track from the album. "Marwa Blues" is a beautiful piece of music, and I still remember the first time I listened to that album, believe it or not, that song did stick out. I was also pretty pleased when they announced in 2003 they were re-promoting the album by releasing "Any Road" as a single, a song that also stands out on the album. "Blow Away" is also one of the catchiest, and all-around delightful songs Harrison ever wrote (perhaps one of his most overlooked hits), and "This Is Love" is on the same level. Both songs would no doubt make my list of a mix CD. The latter is also my favourite song from the Cloud Nine album, and one of three songs I found to be instantly catchy when I first heard the album (the other two? "Got My Mind Set On You" and "When We Was Fab"). I've always had a struggle falling in love with "Cheer Down." I've wanted to adore it, believe me. Perhaps the remastered sound will give me a better appreciation for it. I see this and "I Don't Want to Do It" as the gifts for the fans. These are essentially rarities. Sure, I would have preferre
