Overview

Jackie Lomax, who began his career as the lead singer and bass player for Liverpool's the Undertakers in the mid-'60s, has always had a soulful voice, a bit like his contemporary Steve Winwood (the two actually also look strikingly similar), but his considerable talent never translated as well as Winwood's into international commercial success. But the quality was always there, as this interesting two-disc set clearly shows. The first disc collects singles and demos from the Lomax Alliance (the Undertakers essentially morphed into the Lost Souls and then into the Lomax Alliance) as well as some Lomax solo releases tracked in 1966 and 1967, including seldom-heard gems like "Peaches 'N Cream," "Try as You May," "Don't You Think It's Time," and "Sweeter Than Honey," all of which combine blue-eyed soul with a kind of British Invasion template. The second disc here features Lomax's mid-'70s group Badger's second LP, White Lady, which was produced by the great Allen Toussaint and released in 1974, and highlighted by the marvelous "One More Dream to Hold" and the effortlessly funky "Don't Pull the Trigger." It's all wonderful stuff, and one can't help but puzzle over why this strong singer never broke through to a wider audience: the heart, soul, and quality have always been there.
