Harrison on Clapton's new album

20 May sees a new album with Eric Clapton where George Harrison participates.
UPDATE: Posted by Eric Clapton on his official Facebook page: "There is no truth to the rumor that George Harrison plays or sings on the forthcoming album 'I Still Do'."
"I Will Be There" is a song of unknown vintage, and a certain Angelo Mysterioso participates on acoustic guitar and vocals. Angelo Mysterioso used to be the pseudonym of George Harrison when he helped out on Cream's "Badge", a song co-written by George and Eric (and with a little help from Ringo).

On the new Clapton album "I Still Do" this song is track 3. The album has been produced by Glyn Johns, who also was the mixing engineer for various versions of the unreleased "Get Back" LP, which eventually became "Let It Be".

Victor Spinetti's younger brother Henry plays drums, as he did on Paul and Linda McCartneys "Ram", Paul's "CHOBA B CCCP" and George's "Gone Troppo".

Even the cover has a Beatles connection, it features a portrait of Clapton by Peter Blake, who also designet the cover for "Sgt. Pepper's Lonely Hearts Club Band".

I really like Peter Blake's work. He also did a painting of Kenny Jones for The WHO's Face Dances album in 1981.
