Brand new 2010 digital remaster of the classic John Lennon album. Some Time in New York City
, released in 1972, was Lennon's third post-Beatles album and fifth with Yoko Ono.
His most explicitly political album, Some Time in New York City
rails against the social injustices Lennon and Yoko saw in American society, and was written while John and Yoko were being constantly monitored by the FBI. Its songs deal with sexism, police brutality, the failings of the education system and the problems of Northern Ireland. Its difficult and controversial subject matter contributed to the album's commercial failure. Though it remains a challenging album, it is remarkable for its daring and passion, and for some of the best songs ever written by Ono.
This package, like the original release, features a second disc of live recordings, digitally remastered for this 2010 release.
