George Harrison produces Is This What You Want? by Jackie Lomax

On 16 October 1968, George Harrison flew to Los Angeles for several weeks, returning in November.

The main purpose of the trip was to produce songs for fellow Liverpudlian Jackie Lomax’s debut album, Is This What You Want?, which was released by Apple in March 1969.

The first Los Angeles session took place on this day at Sound Recorders Studios. Harrison produced a session in which the backing track for the title song was recorded.

The core set of musicians on the album were Harrison on rhythm guitar, Joe Osborne on bass guitar, Larry Knechtel on piano, electric piano and organ, and Hal Blaine on drums. Sessions for the album continued until 11 November 1968.
