Personally compiled and curated by Yoko Ono, Imagine John Yoko is the definitive inside story told in revelatory detail of the making of the legendary album and all that surrounded it: the locations, the creative team, the artworks and the films, in the words of John & Yoko and the people who were there. Features 80% exclusive, hitherto-unpublished archive photos and footage sequences of all the key players in situ, together with lyric sheets, Yokos art installations, and exclusive new insights and personal testimonies from Yoko and over forty of the musicians, engineers, staff, celebrities, artists and photographers who were there including Julian Lennon, Klaus Voormann, Alan White, Jim Keltner, David Bailey, Dick Cavett and Sir Michael Parkinson. A lot has been written about the creation of the song, the album and the film of Imagine, mainly by people who werent there, so Im very pleased and grateful that now, for the first time, so many of the participants have kindly given their time to gimme some truth in their own words and pictures Yoko Ono Lennon, 2018 In 1971, John Lennon & Yoko Ono conceived and recorded the critically acclaimed album Imagine at their Georgian country home, Tittenhurst Park, in Berkshire, England, in the state-of-the-art studio they built in the grounds, and at the Record Plant in New York. The lyrics of the title track were inspired by Yoko Onos event scores in her 1964 book Grapefruit, and she was officially co-credited as writer in June 2017. Imagine John Yoko tells the story of John & Yokos life, work and relationship during this intensely creative period. It transports readers to home and working environments showcasing Yokos closely guarded archive of photos and artefacts, using artfully compiled narrative film stills, and featuring digitally rendered maps, floorplans and panoramas that recreate the interiors in evocative detail. John & Yoko introduce each chapter and song; Yoko also provides invaluable additional commentary and a preface. All the minutiae is examined: the locations, the key players, the music and lyrics, the production techniques and the artworks including the creative process behind the double exposure polaroids used on the album cover. With a message as universal and pertinent today as it was when the album was created, this landmark publication is a fitting tribute to John & Yoko and their place in cultural history.

  1. Mycket bra bok

    Mycket bra och innehållsrik bok - även om en del inslag är från andra tidsepoker. Bra bildillustrationer. En del tidningsurklipp kunde dock vara i större stil och en del handskrivna papper borde ha förtydligats.

  2. Lysande musikhistoria!
    Jim Johansson, 23 oktober 2018

    En nostalgitripp för oss som var där fast nu en mycket mer heltäckande och väldokumenterad genomlysning.Mycket unikt ej tidigare släppt bildmaterial, full pott för Yoko, rekommenderad för alla Beatlesfansen såväl gamla som nytillkomna!!
