The eighth 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 for fellow Liverpudlian Lomax. It was released by Apple in March 1969.
During this day’s session musician Paul Beaver added synthesizer to the song ‘I Fall Inside Your Eyes’. Harrison didn’t perform on the song.
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. They were joined on this day by Paul Beaver on synthesizer, and together recorded the songs ‘Baby You’re A Lover’ and ‘How Can You Say Goodbye’.
Sessions for the album continued until 11 November 1968.
