From September, 1968 -- and one of the initial four single releases on the then fledgling Apple Records -- please enjoy Jackie Lomax and his rendition of the swell George Harrison tune "Sour Milk Sea."
Lomax was the very soulful frontman for Liverpool beat group The Undertakers, a bunch that never made much of an impression over here, but who as you can see dressed kind of interestingly. In any case, this is an absolutely kick-ass track, which is not particularly surprising when you consider who's in the superstar backing band. That's Paul McCartney on bass, Ringo Starr on drums, Nicky Hopkins on piano, and on guitars -- trading solos, no less -- both Eric Clapton and the song's composer. Frankly, I've never understood why this wasn't a hit.
Oh, and for the record, the other initial Apple singles were the Fabs' "Hey Jude/Revolution," Mary Hopkin's "Those Were the Days." and "Thingumybob" by The Black Dyke Mills Band.
