The 10th and final 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.
During this day’s session musician Bernie Krause added Moog III synthesizer to the songs ‘Is This What You Want?’, ‘I Fall Inside Your Eyes’, ‘Baby You’re A Lover’, ‘How Can You Say Goodbye’, and ‘Little Yellow Pills’.
After the session, Krause demonstrated the Moog’s range of sounds to Harrison. The demo was recorded and was later released by Harrison as ‘No Time Or Space’ on his second solo album Electronic Sound.
Sessions for Is This What You Want? continued at Trident Studios in London during December 1968. The album was released by Apple in March 1969.
