By George This Is Good

Posted in 60's, perfect pop, Remake Remodel, The Beatles, work in progress on September 23, 2008 by planetmondo

It’s 75% Beatles – written and produced by George Harrison, with Macca on bass and Bongo on drums.

Has guest appearances from Clapton at at his British blues-grinding best and the happy honky-tinking piano of session king Nicky Hopkins.

It conforms to all the codes and conventions of classic pop and packs more crackle than a Catherine wheel into a fizzing four minute bundle.

So why wasn’t ‘Sour Milk Sea’ a hit of any kind for Jackie Lomax (it didn’t even chart, after it’s release in ’68!) – And why has no one covered, or at least sampled it since ?

You can the hear work-in-progress version below, as the Fabs jam on ‘Sour Milk Sea’ round at George’s place ‘Kinfauns‘ while offering up a fistful of each other’s tunes for possible inclusion on the White album.
