Friday on my Mind 111: Sour Milk Sea

This is me breaking the (self-imposed) rules of my category – again.

And how does it break the rules?

It’s a Beatles song. (There have been none so far.)

Well, I say a Beatles song but they never released it in the 60s – and the main item isn’t performed by the Beatles.

The song was, though, written by George Harrison for the White Album sessions but not used on the release. Instead it’s notable as the only track on which three members of the Beatles recorded together for an artist other than themselves during the band’s lifetime; the artist being Jackie Lomax. The line-up contained Lomax on vocals, George Harrison and Eric Clapton on guitars, Nicky Hopkins on piano, Paul McCartney on bass, and Ringo Starr on drums, although McCartney’s contribution was actually overdubbed later.

I include a “Beatles” version from the White Album sessions.
