The Albums Of John Lennon.

I’m a big fan of John Lennon.
You’d be hard pushed to find a bigger Lennon maniac than me.
When I was 14 I heard his 1970 “Plastic Ono Band” album and I’ve been completely hooked ever since on everything he ever did.

On the 4th of October Yoko Ono is releasing a John Lennon ‘Signature’ Box Set.
It looks like this:

It’s available for Pre-Order now and already has bad reviews because it’s a rip off.
A £127.99 rip off.

The box includes 7 remastered official John Lennon albums, some singles and assorted filler.
As much as I love Yoko Ono (And I do), this is a lazy effort.
From what I can see, it’s light by around 7 albums.
It’s also cheaper to buy the albums individually. 

So, in order,
Here they all are:

Unfinished Music No.1: Two Virgins” (1968):

Unfinished Music No.2: Life With The Lions” (1968):

Wedding Album” (1969):

Live Peace In Toronto 1969” (1969):

John Lennon/Plastic Ono Band” (1970):

Imagine” (1971):

Some Time In New York City” (1972):

Mind Games” (1973):

Walls And Bridges” (1974):

Rock ‘N’ Roll” (1975):

Double Fantasy” (1980):

Milk And Honey” (1984):

Live In New York City” (1986):

Menlove Avenue” (1986):

Acoustic” (2004):

Lennon’s music changed a lot from album to album.
For a good balance I recommend:
“John Lennon/Plastic Ono Band”,
“Walls And Bridges” & “Double Fantasy”.

P.S.
I was gonna title this post “All We Are Saying Is Gies Peace Yoko”.

So Long Supergrass…

There was the news today:

Back in the days of school when you kept getting asked that fucking question, Blur or Oasis?”
It didn’t matter because there was Supergrass!

I loved and still love Supergrass.
They were a fuckin’ great band!

I saw them once too!
Glasgow Barrowlands one year (1996?).
A better live band than a studio band, I always thought.

A good time band who knew how to make cool videos!

So that’s them split after 17 years.

Until they come back (And I betcha they will),
Dig out those first two albums.

I listened to both today and they’re still great!
