Lord Sitar (Green vinyl)
Record Store Day 2015 Release. Limited Green 180 gram vinyl with black and yellow 60's Parlophone label. Lord Sitar was the alias for renowned session musician and guitar virtuoso Big Jim Sullivan who, in 1966 and 1967, found himself in the enviable position of being the only established session guitarist in England to own a sitar.
By 1967, that attribute had turned him into a valuable commodity. In 1968 on Lord Sitar's initial release on EMI's Columbia label, there were rumours that the Lord was in fact George Harrison! A kitsch classic, a lounge favourite, Lord Sitar is an album of cover versions as diverse as 'I Can See For Miles' and 'If I Were A Rich Man' from the sitar of the late great guitar legend Big Jim Sullivan.
