Origin

Some critics[who?] saw the song as a pastiche of John Lennon's sound, particularly the riff and the use of tape echo on the vocals. McCartney, however, didn't intend the song to be a pastiche of Lennon. He did say the vocal "does sound like John... I hadn't realised I'd sung it like John."[1]

Live performances

Since its first release, McCartney has performed "Let Me Roll It" in his live concerts. He has also included live versions of the song on several live albums, including Wings over America, Paul Is Live, Back in the U.S. (and Back in the World), and Good Evening New York City.
