Let It Roll: Songs by George Harrison (or Let It Roll: The Music of George Harrison) is the third compilation of George Harrison's music, and the first to span his entire solo career after The Beatles era. The collection was announced on 14 April 2009, the same day Harrison received a star on the Hollywood Walk of Famemarker, and was released 16 June 2009, on both Compact Disc and in digital format.

The album features songs originally released on EMI and Harrison's Dark Horse Records label. All included tracks are presented in digitally remastered form and the collection includes a booklet featuring previously unseen and rare photos.

The album includes all of Harrison's songs that reached #1 on the Billboard Hot 100, including "My Sweet Lord", "Isn't It A Pity", "Give Me Love ", and "Got My Mind Set On You".

Following a prematurely announced track listing from retailers such as Amazon.com and Tower Records, EMI stated in a press release on 29 April 2009, that the final track listing was yet to be announced. On 5 May 2009, EMI finally published it and it turned out to be identical to the one announced a few weeks earlier by Amazon.com and Tower Records.iTunes exclusively offers the digital album with a previously unreleased bonus track, Harrison's earliest demo version of "Isn't It A Pity."

The album debuted at #4 in the UKmarker, becoming his highest chart position in over 35 years (since 1973's Living in the Material World). In the U.S., the album debuted at #24, and as of August 6, 2009, has sold over 51,000 copies. Total sales are currently estimated at 160,000 copies worldwide.
