According to a Koch Records' press release Julian is a confirmed participant in this tribute album which is slated for release on Feb. 25, 2003 (would have been Harrison's 60th Birthday). Proposed title for the album is "Songs From the Material World."

Last I had checked with MFAR they had not heard any information on this so at this point, Julian's involvement with this project has not been confirmed through them.
