Jackie Lomax is a long-lost/never found gem. One of the best white R&B/soul voices to have come out of the sixties and seventies, he was unappreciated at the time and unheard of today and what a shame that is for lovers of great blues/soul/pop music. After spending the mid-60s in the Undertakers and Lomax Alliance, he was the first solo act signed to the Beatles' Apple label and his first single, SOUR MILK SEA, was written by George Harrison. It was one of the first four Apple singles and featured Jackie, George Harrison, and Eric Clapton on guitars, Paul McCartney on bass, Ringo Starr on drums, and Nicky Hopkins on piano - and Jackie's voice is equal to the high quality of the musicianship. In spite of this superstar line-up, the single failed to chart but an LP of Jackie's own songs was recorded, again produced by George Harrison and with the same line-up on some of the tracks. Other tracks came out of sessions Jackie and George recorded with the cream of LA session players: Hall Blaine on drums, Larry Knechtel on keyboards and Joe Osborn on bass. The LP, entitled IS THIS WHAT YOU WANT?, was released in March 1969 but there was no concerted effort to promote the album or to highlight the incredible group of musicians involved and it didn't sell enough to enter the charts in Britain or America. Two singles later he was lost in the black hole at Apple Records created by the break-up of the Beatles, and he had to move on to other things on other labels like Warner Brothers and Capitol. This CD has all the tracks he recorded for Apple, and there's not a bad one amongst them. There's SOUR MILK SEA with Eric Clapton and George Harrison on double lead guitars, the beautiful FALL INSIDE YOUR EYES, the hit-that-never-was HOW THE WEB WAS WOVEN and - as they say - many, many more.Read more ›

Until now my experience of Jackie Lomax had solely been through the purchase in 1970 of the Paul McCartney produced single "How The Web Was Woven" c/w "Thumbin' A Ride", the A-side of which got good radio play at the time, but, alas, was not a hit, and the B-side was a Lieber/Stoller chugger originally done by the Coasters. These two songs, included on this collection as "bonus tracks" are in truth the most commercial of the tunes he recorded with the Apple label.
The radio and press at the time mentioned the earlier album, but it appeared to have already disappeared from record stores and I've had to wait until now to get my hands on this CD (which, I notice, may have had a release in 1991, but they were certainly as quiet about it then as they had been 22 years earlier!).
As to the music, Jackie Lomax has what you would call a white soul/R&B voice, similar to Chris Farlowe and Colin Blunstone (but not as high); it's quite unusual. Lead track "Speak To Me" with its string backing is particularly reminiscent of Farlowe, and it's a strong opening number. This and most of the other songs were written by Jackie, though I suspect that there was some input from his Beatle mentors; the title track echoes "Walrus" in its alliterative lyric, and there are traces of "Prudence" and various other Northern Songs in others. "Sour Milk Sea", which was lifted off as a single, is a George Harrison song, but one which perhaps wouldn't have met his bandmates' quality control; "The Eagle Laughs At You" employs the fuzz-box to both voice and guitar. And there are a couple of ballads, of which "Fall Inside Your Eyes" is embarassingly corny, lyric-wise.

Despite "Sour Milk Sea" being written by George Harrison at a time when all-things-Beatles was at an all-time fever pitch - Jackie Lomax's debut album on their Apple Label never really raised the goose bumps on collector's arms (or the public's interest for that matter). But on rehearing this 1969 opening salvo - there is much to enjoy here and in its Expanded Edition state - a far better prospect. One of 14 Apple Label albums Remastered and Reissued on 20 October 2010 - here are the questionable details...

Using the Stereo Mix of the album - "Is That What You Want?" CD Remaster on Apple 5099990825521 breaks down as follows (60:09 minutes):

1. Speak To Me
2. Is This What You Want?
3. How Can You Say Goodbye
4. Sunset
5. Sour Milk Sea
6. Fall Inside Your Eyes
7. Little Yellow Pills [Side 2]
8. Take My Word
9. The Eagle Laughs At You
10. Baby You're A Lover
11. You've Got Me Thinking
12. I Just Don't know
Tracks 1 to 12 are the LP "Is That What You Want?" released 14 March 1969 on Apple APCOR 6 (Mono) and Apple SAPCOR 6 (Stereo) in the UK and on Apple ST-3354 in the USA (Stereo only).

BONUS TRACKS:
13. New Day
14. Thumbin' A Ride
15. How The Web Was Woven
16. You've Got To Be Strong
17. You Make It With Me
18. Can You Hear Me
Tracks 13 to 15 were the 3 bonus tracks given with the 1991 reissue while 16 to 18 are previously unreleased and exclusive to this 2010 version. There are also 5 more extra tracks available via Digital Download from iTunes or Amazon as an extra payment (see either site for details).

Using both album and bonus tracks, this CD will allow fans to sequence his 3 Apple UK 7" singles as follows:
