Home Is in My Head Review

by Thom Jurek

Jackie Lomax's second album, Home Is in My Head, is even less distinct that his George Harrison-produced Apple debut Is This What You Want?. After playing in the nearly mythical Heavy Jelly, a band that recorded a couple of singles -- before Lomax joined -- and recorded an as yet unreleased album in 1970, Lomax moved to Woodstock later that year, signed to Warner, and began the sessions for his sophomore offering with his own band, the Lomax Alliance. Self-produced, the album features 12 original compositions, very much in the funky soul-rock vein as his first album. Lomax is an able but not exceptional singer. His tunes are standard fare as well,. The album, as an album, holds together very well, but there are no individual headturners. The best moments here are "Nothing Ever Seems to Go My Way," "When I Miss You the Most," and "Don't Do Me No Harm."
