Pre Electronic Sound

Judging by the amount of coverage George was given on Anthology 3 it is apparent that George’s skills as a songwriter really started to flourish during this era. In this collection we find the first couple non-Beatle tracks in a tune given to friend Jackie Lomax, and a collaboration with also-friend Eric Clapton for Eric᾿s band Cream.
