Live In New York City

Performers John Lennon

Capitol | October 30, 1986 | Compact Disc

Not yet rated | write a review
"Que pasa, New York?" sings John Lennon in the song for his new home which opens this historic Madison Square Garden appearance. On LIVE IN NEW YORK CITY, Lennon sounds thoroughly excited and just on the brink of chaos at times, but his hard-earned rocker chops don't let him down. The political is balanced with the personal here. Lennon chooses a favorite from his Cavern Club days, "Hound Dog," as well as one from the late Beatles repertoire, "Come Together." The tender utopian vision of "Imagine," with a catchy new sax hook on the bridge, is contrasted with the bleak, pain-infused "Cold Turkey." As politically minded as Lennon was at this point in his life, where he once sang "Yeah, yeah, yeah" ("She Loves You," 1963) and "No, no, no" ("I'm So Tired," 1968), here he settles for "Well, Well, Well," existentially musing about whether or not one can raise consciousness in the face of the unstoppable force of destiny. On the chilling "Mother," we feel our own pain, not just his, and when the seriocomic "Instant Karma" starts churning irresistibly, one wants to hug this sorely missed New-York-by-way-of-Liverpool rock & roller in recognition and appreciation.
