In a written message shared by user Calvin Betton, he explained that a 19-year-old Collins had received a phone call saying that Harrison wanted a conga player for a track on his 1970 solo album, All Things Must Pass.
He continues: “He plays congas on the track, with George there and Phil Spector producing. A few weeks later the album comes out and there is no sign of the congas on the track.
“Phil is gutted but can’t do anything about it.”
The pair went 20 years without crossing paths again, before they end up chatting at an event.
Betton writes: “After an hour or so, Phil says to George, 'I don’t know whether you remember, but when I was a kid I came to the studio on the ATMP sessions and played congas on a track, but when it was released the congas weren’t on the final recording?'"
“I’ve always wondered why. Any ideas?”
