Jackie Lomax returned to England in late 1973 and joined Badger, a group put  together by Tony Kaye, ex-Yes keyboard player and they recorded the WHITE LADY LP, which sounded exactly like the follow-up to THREE and very little like the previous Badger release.  The entire album was made up of Lomax songs, was produced by Allen Toussaint and featured Jackie's usual blend of R&B and soul.  The guitar solo on the title track, White Lady, was played by Jeff Beck.

ALEX GITLIN'S BADGER WEBSITE says '… the search for a frontman/songwriter ended with the addition of Liverpool born Jackie Lomax, previously with The Undertakers and solo artist with The Beatles' Apple label. Lomax transformed Badger from a Progressive Rock band into a more soulful outfit and wrote all of the songs for the band's second LP…'

JACKIE LOMAX says '...It was my album… they had no songs.  I had 33 songs, and I said, 'Pick the ones you want.'  There was a great lack of motivation in that band.  I went back to England to do that, but nobody showed much enthusiasm.  I had to go to New Orleans and explain that to Allen Toussaint, who'd done horn and background vocal  arrangements.  It turned out much better than I thought it would, but I had to mix it myself.  When I did, the band fell apart…..'

The break-up of the band happened not long after the release of the album, after a gig at Croydon's Fairfield Hall, when a disagreement with ELO over the use of their PA system ruined what should have been a triumphant evening for them.  Jackie and bass player Kim Gardner left Badger to form a short-lived, breakaway group called after the album.   Jackie Lomax then crossed the Atlantic again to restart his solo career and to finally settle in America.
