JACKIE LOMAX
The Ballad Of Liverpool Slim...Plus
(Angel Air Records)

 

Back in 1969 Beatles fans were amazed by the Lp release by Jackie Lomax entitled Is This What You Want? Jackie was a protégé of Beatles guitarist George Harrison, the album’s mastermind who wrote Jackie’s debut single on Apple Records “Sour Milk Sea.” A member of Liverpool favorites The Undertakers back in the early Beatles years, Lomax has released a number of solo albums over the years with recent highlights including a fantastic early ‘90s CD reissue of his Apple album featuring several key bonus cuts as well as reissues of the Undertakers albums spotlighting his vocal and guitar work. In 2001, Jackie recorded The Ballad Of Liverpool Slim, his first album of new material in 20 years. Fans have waited eight long years to hear this great Lomax comeback, and to make it even more appealing Angel Air packs their 14 cut Liverool Slim CD with a pair of bonus cuts, including a live “Sour Milk Sea,” recorded in San Francisco in 1976 and an even more recent tribute to the late, great George Harrison, a real Lomax tear-jerker in the finest Harrisong tradition entitled “Friend-A-Mine.” Liverool Slim features a solid group including Spirit bass icon Mark Andes and several other players supporting Jackie’s vocals, lead guitar work, bass and keyboards. His hair may be graying but as the CD points out, Lomax has lost none of his incredibly soulful vocal and song writing abilities. Anyone who enjoyed Jackie back in the “Sour Milk Sea” days will dig the bluesy, soulful rock groove of The Ballad Of Liverpool Slim. Oh, and Jackie’s cover art original oil painting graces the front cover of the CD booklet. A man of many talents indeed. www.JackieLomax.com
