I keep hearing George's name pop up among slide guitarists. I have the majority of the Beatles catalog but was curious about Harrison's solo stuff, especially his slide playing. Just seeing which CDs you guys recommend for his slide playing.

Actually CM, everything in sequence after "ALL THINGS MUST PASS", would be proper. He was heavily influenced by the Indian music on the set of "HELP", and learned it, then became a "Hare Krishna".............but kept his hair!LOL

crowesmule,

If you can find the Travelling Wilburys' first album, you'll find some sweet playing by George. Not realy a solo album by any means, but it's some of his best work in his later years.

Handle only with care.

The Traveling Wilburys album is great. Unfortunately, I believe it is out of print now for some reason. Check out For You Blue I think it is on Let It , great slide stuff on there.

Duane Allman and George Harrision two different styles but masters at what they did

Allthings must pass is great

But my fav. is Brainwashed it should of been album of the year in 2002 if came out after he passed, but some of the best playing I ever heard him do "stuck in side a Cloud"

It will give you chills


also another great one is George Harrison / George Harrison it came out in 1979 and has a unreleased beatles song called Not Guilty and Here comes the Moon

just buy all of them it worth it!!

----that is actually John Lennon on slide and somewhere there is a video clip of it.

As to GH's slide work, check out the GH tribute. It took 2 slide guitarists to recreate his work.

Cheers

Carlos "also listen to Ringo Starr's 'Back Off Bugaloo', Badfinger's 'Day after Day', and Harry Nilsson's 'You're Breaking My Heart'" Rivera

Duane Allman's slide playing is rooted more in the blues, whereas George Harrison's playing is melodic. (Duane's is melodic too - just in a different way). All Things Must Pass is a great album. Eric Clapton and his group Derek and The Dominos are essentially the backup band on the album (along with others). I think one could argue that it is among the best post-Beatles records released by any of the former Beatles.

I'll second "'Stuck Inside a Cloud"...great work, plus the emotions from knowing when it was done in Harrison's life just kills me....

My recomendation is a little bit strange one.
You can hear George's slide play on Tom Scott album called
"New York Connection".
He played on tunes "Appolonia [Foxtrata] ".
Tune is so melodious and sweet, and his play was very charming.

I agree with what someone else posted. Georges slide work is nothing like Duanes. "My Sweet Lord" as one example. A really pretty melodic phrase, just played over and over. He was into a sweeter tone than a gritty blues player would be after. I think Clapton must have really liked Georges slide style(among other things of Georges) since much of Erics 70's slide work sounded like George.("Promises"..."Motherless Children"..."Give Me Strength"...etc)

An interesting thing I read in an article about George. Apparently, there were about 15 slide guitar tracks all mixed together on the "My Sweet Lord" recording.
