While My Guitar Gently Weeps
While My Guitar Gently Weeps - Front Cover

The Beatles Contribution:  George Harrison - Inspiration.
Label Uncut
Catalogue No. UNCUT 2008 08
Release Date August 2008
U.K. Album Chart Detail : Does not qualify for chart inclusion.
Detail : "While My Guitar Gently Weeps" is the given title of this tribute to George Harrison.
Featuring covers, curios and tracks that inspired George, this C.D. was given away FREE with the August 2008 edition of Uncut Magazine.

The tracks on the whole are not copies of George's performances (some are), but are performed in the style of the artiste performing here. The title track is a really nice folksy dreamy re-working of George's classic, Within You Without You is an instrumental, and the Voodoo Glow Skulls thrash through Here Comes The Sun in under 2 minutes !
An eclectic mix, make no mistake.

Uncut magazine is a fine mixture of Cinema and Music, and is a darn good read anyway.
