The fifth Los Angeles recording session for Jackie Lomax’s debut album Is This What You Want? took place on this day at Sound Recorders Studio.
George Harrison produced the album, which was released by Apple in March 1969. He had been absent from a session on the 26th, during which the backing track for the song ‘Little Yellow Pills’ was recorded.
In this day’s session strings were added to ‘Speak To Me’ and ‘Take My Word’, the backing tracks for which had been recorded on 24 and 25 October respectively. The overdubbed instruments were arranged and conducted by Allan Capps, and drummer Hal Blaine was among the performers.
