According to a few sources, Paul and George produced and arranged Jackie's follow up single, Thumbin' a Ride / Going back to Liverpool, with Paul likely to have contributed drums, bass and possibly guitar

Thanks Muninman for this. Indeed, I had a look at "All Together Now", a 1975 book that lists all Beatles contribution. It's written there:

Thumbin' A Ride

Jackie Lomax: Vocal
Prod: Paul
George: Guitar
Paul: Drums
Billy Preston: Piano & Organ
Klaus Voorman: Bass
George & Patti and the Rascals: Backing Vocals

No mention of any contribution for the B-side "Going back to Liverpool" in this book. Will research more.

Thanks again !
