Performers John Lennon

Capitol | January 18, 1988 | Compact Disc

Not yet rated | write a review
Producers: John Lennon, Phil Spector, Yoko Ono. Recorded in Montreal, Canada. All songs written by John Lennon except "Give Peace A Chance" (J. Lennon/P. McCartney), "Woman Is The Nigger Of The World" and "Happy Xmas (War Is Over)" (J. Lennon/Y. Ono). Although there have been subsequent Lennon compilations as well as 1990's formidable LENNON box set, SHAVED FISH is the granddaddy of all such collections highlighting the singer's solo career. SHAVED FISH spanned a spectrum of the ex-Beatle's singles and B-sides through 1974's WALLS AND BRIDGES. Although SHAVED FISH eschews some of Lennon's edgier, more controversial tracks like "Working Class Hero," "God" or "Gimme Some Truth," the collection still acknowledges some of the riskier chances Lennon took in his tumultuous solo forays. The full range of his political, spiritual and social restlessness is represented--from the enraged "Woman Is The Nigger of the World" to the heartbreaking beauty of "Happy Xmas (Give Peace a Chance)" SHAVED FISH also mirrors Lennon's complicated creative relationship with Ono, from the primal shriek of "Mother" to the mesmerizing murmur of "#9 Dream," recorded during Lennon's "lost years" of the mid-'70s during the couple's temporary separation. Unlike later collections which usually feature work from DOUBLE FANTASY and the posthumous MILK AND HONEY, SHAVED FISH doesn't carry the same weight of tragic consequence (nor of domestic bliss) as those retrospectives. Rather, it celebrates the singer at the living, breathing and still defiant apex of his solo career.
