When the 'Come & Get It' compilation came out, Jackie Lomax's Sour Milk Sea got a lot of airplay on the Radio Leeds programme 'Sixties Souvenir' (now defunct), as did Badfinger's Rock Of All Ages. I guess this is where the young Freddie Bulsara got the name of a pre-Queen band from.
Musically, it's a brother to Savoy Truffle from the White Album, also a George Harrison composition. Ringo's drumming is brilliant and the Sour Milk Sea of the title could be any bad situation the listener finds themselves in and needs to get out of.
