Eric Clapton Guest Appearances – Apple Records Catalogue Remastered and Reissued

Eric Clapton appeared as a guest on the following albums; the cd’s will be remastered and reissued on October 26.

ENCOURAGING WORDS (1970) by Billy Preston
Encouraging Words is steeped in exemplary playing and songwriting… and pure soul. Produced by George Harrison and packed with originals and inspired covers, including “My Sweet Lord” and “All Things (Must) Pass” – donated by George before he released them himself – and the little-heard Harrison-Preston gospel hymn “Sing One For The Lord.” This is Billy on the launch pad just before he rocketed to U.S. No. 2 success with “Outta Space” for A&M Records.

THAT’S THE WAY GOD PLANNED IT (1969) by Billy Preston
Billy’s Apple debut, on which he expanded his palette of gospel and R&B to embrace rock themes, features guest players Eric Clapton, Ginger Baker and Keith Richards. Produced by George Harrison, after Billy was invited to The Beatles’ Get Back sessions, That’s The Way… is a cross-over masterwork that includes Billy’s breakthrough chart hit, for which this album is named.

IS THIS WHAT YOU WANT? (1968) by Jackie Lomax
Yes! This is a cracking album of powerful late-Sixties rock and blue-eyed soul by Liverpool vocalist Jackie Lomax. Among the many highlights is George Harrison’s White Album-era song “Sour Milk Sea,” given to Jackie and featuring guest players including George, Paul McCartney, Ringo Starr, Keith Richards and Eric Clapton.

DORIS TROY (1970) by Doris Troy

The self-titled Apple album from the legendary Doris Troy, nicknamed ‘Mama Soul’ by her British fans, is an exciting union of R&B, gospel and rock. It showcases four little-known songs Doris co-wrote with George Harrison, two of which also credit Stephen Stills and Ringo Starr. Other guests include Billy Preston, Peter Frampton and Eric Clapton.
