JOHN LENNON Plastic Ono Band Sessions (1970)

Plastic Ono Band Sessions (1970)
An Examination Of John Lennon’s ‘Love’

Studio quality outtakes of one of John Lennon’s most beautiful compositions, “Love,” from the 1970 Plastic Ono Band sessions – Lennon’s first solo album (of new tunes) after leaving The Beatles. This set includes acoustic rehearsals, better known piano/guitar configurations and even a short-lived band arrangement, all in stellar studio sound. Like all Lennon’s outtakes, there are miscues, false starts, abrupt endings and farting around. “Every golden moment,” as Lennon deadpans.

    Nice one! Very interesting to follow Lennon's creative process. Too bad (or not) you can't hear Yoko's side of the conversation.

    Thanks for caring enought to post it.
