1."Sour Milk Sea" is notable as the only track on which three members of 'The
Beatles' recorded together for an artist other than themselves during the band's
lifetime, although McCartney's contribution was actually overdubbed on 26 June,
following his return from an Apple-related business trip the day before.
2. It was the first song Harrison "gave away" to another artist; the Lomax album
project was the first time he served as producer for another artist; and the
recording is the first example of Harrison and Clapton sharing lead-guitar duties
on record.
