Described by Lennon as the best thing Ive ever done, and widely regarded by critics as his best solo album, John Lennon/Plastic Ono Band was released alongside the remarkable Yoko Ono/Plastic Ono Band on 11 December 1970. With first-hand commentary by John & Yoko, members of the Plastic Ono Band and other key figures in their lives, and packed with evocative and revealing letters, artworks and photographs, this incisive volume offers new insights into the raw emotions and open mindset of Lennon after marriage to Ono and the break-up of the Beatles. Following their wedding in March 1969, Lennon and Ono decided that their future musical endeavours should be credited to a conceptual vehicle, the Plastic Ono Band. The band featured an ever-changing line-up of musicians, including Eric Clapton, Klaus Voormann, Ringo Starr, Alan White, George Harrison, Billy Preston and Jim Keltner, all of whom played live with Lennon and Ono, and contributed to their recordings. The fearless honesty that John & Yoko inspired in one another in their search for truth, meaning and peace had a huge impact on Lennons song writing, resulting in the creation of tracks that are intensely personal and unlike anything previously heard in popular music, including Mother, Working Class Hero and God. This book takes those lyrics as a starting point and explores Lennons life, relationships and world view during this transformative period.

Recensioner i media

'A comprehensive, fascinating, well-produced, and finely printed publication that captures a moment of contemporary culture with breadth and depth. It brings then into now and shows how similar and different life is today' - Will Gompertz 'A handsome tome never less than fascinating The album was a high point in an astonishing career and the book does it justice' - The Sun 'A fine tribute to this intensely creative time in the couples joined-at-the-hip lives A sumptuous and lovingly created example of the bookmakers art, an encyclopaedic extravaganza of reminiscences and memorabilia' - The Budapest Times 'A hardback compendium of first-hand accounts about the band drawn from interviews over the years It contains photos, lyrics, drawings and letters, and will be as interesting to Lennon completists as The Beatles Anthology was to general fans 20 years ago' - Daily Telegraph
