Album Review

Those who have Jackie Lomax pegged firmly onto the board marked "'60s veterans" probably need to update their address books. He may be best known for his long-ago association with the Beatles, and his Apple label waxings might be all that most people are familiar with. But he has been recording sporadically ever since then, and the same quality that won George Harrison's heart has been evident throughout. Indeed, 2000's The Ballad of Liverpool Slim might well be his finest disc ever.

By rights, based on his talent, he ought to have been at least as well-known and successful as, say, Long John Baldry, yet somehow the necessary breaks eluded him. Born in Liverpool in 1944, Lomax...
