The final days of the Beatles' existence were fraught with turmoil, personality conflicts and, miraculously, great music. Influenced by the breakup of the legendary band and his recent marriage to Yoko Ono, John Lennon's first Beatles-free musical foray was Plastic Ono Band. Full of the politically charged vitriol that symbolized the divide between Lennon and former songwriting partner Paul McCartney, this album is a definitive encapsulation of the shaggy singer's worldview. Featuring the poignant anthem "Working Class Hero" and deeply personal explorations like "Love" and "Mother," this album is an arresting account of a musician reaching for artistic freedom with both hands.

Editorial Notes

JOHN LENNON PLASTIC ONO BAND came out at the same time as an album by Lennon's wife Yoko Ono (also titled PLASTIC ONO BAND).
Personnel: John Lennon (vocals, guitar, piano); Billy Preston, Phil Spector (piano); Klaus Voorman (bass); Ringo Starr (drums); Yoko Ono.
Producers: Phil Spector, John Lennon, Yoko Ono.
Engineers include: John Leckie, Andy Stevens, Eddie Veal.
Recorded at Abbey Road Studios, London, England in 1970. Originally released on Apple (3372).
Digitally remastered by Yoko Ono & Peter Cobbin (2000, Abbey Road Studios, London, England) & Phil Nicolo (Studio 4 & Right Track Studios, New York, New York).
PLASTIC ONO BAND was as stripped-down and raw as Lennon could make it. With only bass and drums accompanying Lennon's guitar or piano, the record conveyed a tension that Lennon's vocals only enhanced. Influenced by primal scream therapy, he pushed his vocal cords to the limit on "Well Well Well" and fade-out of "Mother."
His work was startlingly personal; whether he was saying goodbye to the Beatles ("God's Song") or to his mother ("My Mummy's Dead"), his lyrics were inseperable from his life. His songs were often bitter, as he struggled to create an identity seperate from the Beatles he lashed out at a variety of targets (among them, his audience, in "Working Class Hero").
