I am a huge John Lennon fan. I am a fan of him for the fact he was a deeply flawed man who was constantly searching for something. Unlike most music, especially mainstream "Hip Hop", or watered down whatever-the-radio-is-playing-on-a-loop-these-days music, I can relate to Lennon's lyrics. I feel them, I know what he is talking about. John Lennon put out a lot of music. The specific record I am referring to is John Lennon's first record post Beatles, John Lennon "Plastic Ono Band". This is one of the most stripped down, minimalistic, and deeply truthful pieces of art I have ever experienced. I first heard it when I was maybe 8 or 9. Grown up (just a bit?) this record has found me again at the exact time it was supposed to. If you ever want to hear complete honesty in lyrics, this is THE album. Beautifully recorded and in my opinion, there is not one note under or over played. To me what John Lennon, Klaus Voorman, Ringo Starr, and Billy Preston did on this record is genius. A record that from top to bottom has no bad songs. No bad decisions.
Here is the story of making this monumental album.
