Hi all,
Sorry about the delayed start to this month's challenge, i asked Day Tripper Girl to pick for this month, but it seems she has been unable to get over here....she's had some internet probs i think.
Anyway....i know she was thinking of picking George's song Sour Milk Sea, so i'll go with that.
I know it's a very difficult tune mix, i'm not exactly relishing the prospect myself, but please have a go, you never know, something really nice may happen! Good Luck!

Yes that's the yardstick regarding Sour Milk Sea mixes....it's probably the only one so far!

i have a little track done, but i've made it very very quickly...within an hour at my mum's place....it sounds pretty good on headphones, but i'll check it at home before posting.

Well it's pretty lo-fi, and there's a glitch or two that i cannot now fix, but i think this turnerd out quite well.
Samples from George's "Sour Milk Sea" demo, more from I Am The Walrus, Get Back a few assorted samples from the White Album sessions, all supported by percussion samples and a lot of luck! I wish most tracks would sound as interesting after just an hours work :lol:
enjoy.

i dunno, i tried to find info unsuccessfully.
...but seeing as i mixed it quite easily with Get Back, then i'm assuming its "A" or something compatible.

Here's a strange one! It started life as "something completely different"....and probably really bad, but i stuck with it, and it eventually morphed into this.
It features Sour Milk Sea samples of course, but also some from Cold Turkey, the X-press2/David Byrne collaboration "Lazy", the Baha Men's "Who Let The Dogs Out" abomination, and some Monty Python samples.

I went looking to answer your question, but no luck no tabs or sheet music to download and post!

But what I did find was info on who's on that track, which I never knew!!

Sour Milk Sea is a song written by George Harrison that surfaced during the sessions for The Beatles (also known as The White Album). The song was recorded professionally by Jackie Lomax on The Beatles' Apple Records label and released as a single in 1968.

In addition to Jackie Lomax, the single features George Harrison and Eric Clapton on guitars, Paul McCartney on bass, Ringo Starr on drums, and Nicky Hopkins on piano. The song is notable for being among the few non-Beatles songs to feature at least three members of the band.

Sour Milk Sea

If your life's not right, doesn't satisfy you
Don't get the breaks like some of us do
Better work it out; find where you've gone wrong
Better do it soon as you don't have long

Get out of Sour Milk Sea
You don't belong there
Get back to where you should be
Find out what's going on there

If you want the most from everything you do
In the shortest time your dreams come true
In no time at all it makes you more aware
Very simple process takes you there

Get out of Sour Milk Sea
You don't belong there
Get back to where you should be
Find out what's going on there

Looking for release from limitation?
There's nothing much without illumination
Can fool-around with every different cult
There's only one way brings result

Get out of Sour Milk Sea
You don't belong there
Get back to where you should be
Find out what's going on there

This is a fun cut, more a chance to showcase "Cold Turkey"! The cut was fun with "Python" samples and the underlining "Sour Milk Sea" guitar could be a little more evident, although perhaps a little "Harrison" vocal to answer those "Mad Ptythons" would be nice too... :wink:

Thanks OV.
Yes it does showcase Cold Turkey more, but there's just so little to work with from Sour Milk Sea, that's why this challenge is so difficult.
There's no way of doing extractions because it's mono, and there are only a couple of places in the recording that you can pull loops from.
So...i think there are only two ways of doing anything with this song.......first you could "simply" add to the recording by inventing a new backing or secondly you could choose to use the loopable parts....which is the route i went with. Either way, i think this is the trickiest challenge so far. Good luck to anyone who's attempting something....they'll need it!

i almost gave this one a pass. Too hard, too weird a chord progression etc. Then I decided to give it a shot, using the tracks that are most similar to SMS. Ended up with savoy truffle, and everyone's Monkey.

So here it is, more pleasing than I expected......

Well done, i can appreciate the work gone into this.
It's a nightmare song to work with.
The tune itself works quite well (if a little clashy here and there)...i found it a bit long though, i think the intro could be snappier and maybe a touch less of the "come on's" after George's first verse.The Saxes work well, nice idea.

Thanks; the saxes lift the song up, that's right. To be honest, wasn't entirely my idea, but as long as nobody finds out, it's OK. :oops:

A bit lomg perhaps, by today's standards Seems to me that the attention span of each generation grows shorter, so - for a sixtie's song - it's not too bad. These wewre the days of Revolution # 9.. :roll:

I liked MP3J's get back one,altho it didn't always sound correct pitch-wise.

The sour turkey one I liked better.It's very quirky in a strong mix way.

Bdj's I very much enjoyed.It improved the original nicely.

I cut & looped myself an instrumental from the best take I could find & used a decent pella & voila...

yeah, this was fun too. Some of the audio levels are in need of adjusting, things drown or get drowned out here and there. But what a great idea!

As for me, Not one idea came for this song...
