Eric Clapton "Life in 12 Bars" soundtrack features Beatles, George Harrison tunes

Beatles tunes don't get anthologized much, but Eric Clapton had a special relationship to the group, having collaborated with George Harrison on a number of projects and, of course, having provided the famed solo on "While My Guitar Gently Weeps."

The Life in 12 Bars soundtrack is due out June 8 and includes the Beatles' recording of "While My Guitar Gently Weeps," Cream's "Badge" (which was co-written by Clapton and George, and George's "My Sweet Lord," which features Clapton on guitar.
