Description

A definitive, in-depth, revelatory exploration of John Lennon''s intensely personal first major solo album after the breakup of the Beatles.

Described by Lennon as "the best thing I''ve ever done," and widely regarded as his best solo album, John Lennon/Plastic Ono Band was released on 11 December 1970. With first-hand commentary by Lennon, Ono, and other members of the band, and packed with previously unseen photographs by those who documented their lives, this incisive volume offers new insights into the raw emotions and open mindset of Lennon after marriage to Ono and the breakup of the Beatles, to the making of the album and revealing interview with Jann Wenner in December 1970.

Primal therapy had a huge impact on Lennon''s songwriting, resulting in the creation of intensely personal, soul-baring tracks. This book takes his lyrics as a starting point and explores Lennon''s life, career, and self-perception, from "performing flea" with the Beatles to authenticity as a solo artist.

Released and Received on the 40th. Anniversary release of ''Double Fantasy''. For those of us who don''t forget, what a beautiful way to celebrate the release. 1970 was a beginning for John and Yoko and from what I''ve seen so far gives a pretty full account of their early years up to the Plastic Ono Band. From ''Give Peace a Chance'' through the ''Imagine'' album, it was a most creative and magical time for those of us who followed their music and lives. Not even Dylan came close during this period. This book represents a significant part of this chapter of their lives and the most important years in the social and human rights of awareness in America''s political arena. For me it''s all been deeply personal and relevant in my life. It was during these years my social and political awareness developed and rose into a creative and long-term writing career. Without these years, I would have no square one. Thank you John and Yoko and the Plastic Ono Band.

This is a hefty, beautifully constructed and printed book--a real work of art in itself! Even the side of the book is printed!
Tons of lovely and often surprising photos of John & Yoko, of the band, of their childhoods and families, etc. Many reproductions of important documents.
Splendid informative texts about the songs and times by John, Yoko, Ringo, Klaus Voorman, Billy Preston, and others.
A wonderful document of the times around 1970, and the specific art of John & Yoko. If you like the Plastic Ono Band records, you''ll love this book!

A Great Book!
Reviewed in the United States on June 2, 2021
I enjoyed it because it covered The Plastic Ono Band quite heavily--which is what I wanted. I now know more about the big musical break that changed the life of drummer Alan White, just prior to his joining YES in July 1972.
