Personnel includes: John Lennon (guitar, vocals); Jesse Ed Davis (guitar); Klaus Voorman (bass); Jim Keltner (drums). Recorded at Record Plant, New York City; A&M Studios, Los Angeles, California. Engineers: Roy Cicala, Lee Keifer, Shelly Yakus, Ed Sprigg, Dave Thoener. This contains outtakes from the Phil Spector produced version of WALLS AND BRIDGES. Named for the Liverpool street where John Lennon grew up with his Aunt Mimi, this posthumously released collection features songs originally recorded for WALLS AND BRIDGES minus the horns and string arrangements later added. Most of these songs were either produced by Phil Spector or Lennon himself and the differences are readily apparent. Spector co-wrote "Here We Go Again" and oversaw Lennon's covers of "Angel Baby" and "Since My Baby Left Me," a song that sounded as if a party was going on at the time of its recording. All three were doused in the uber-producer's trademark "Wall Of Sound" style of production. An obvious nod to his producer's past was Lennon's decision to cover and slightly rework the Teddy Bear's "To Know Her Is To Love Her." The '50s-flavored "Rock And Roll People" is a Lennon production that shows an obvious debt to Little Richard's skill on the '88s and proves the ex-Beatle to be no slouch on the piano himself. Other Lennon-produced tracks--including "Steel and Glass," "Scared" and the Harry Nilsson co-written "Old Dirt Road"--all have sparse instrumentation and ache with Lennon's emotive vocal and instrumental nuances.
