Here he sings of pretty specific political events of 1971-2, which although important in their own way undoubtedly, are not the stuff of which great Lennon albums are made. These lyrics are, for the most part, the weakest in the Lennon solo canon. He attached himself to various causes in these years, later changed his mind, then later tried to defend them. A tad inconsistent me thinks. But anyway, to the songs. The opener 'Woman Is The Nigger Of The World' one can say for sure is thoroughly genuine in its passion and commitment (helped not insignificantly by Yoko to give credit where it's due).Read more ›
New York City blasted as one of JL's finest rock moments, a diary of their time in NYC. "Woman is the Nigger of the World" incredibly brave, lyrics and singing superb! John Sinclair great slide guitar and singing.
"The Luck of the Irish" was superb, lyrically biased, but after the
shootings in Derry, someone (brave) had to say something. "Sunday Bloody Sunday", is not remembered in the same way as the U2 track, the lyrics are hard, but it does bite as a track .
The "Live Jam" cd has the heaviest version of "Cold Turkey" you will ever hear plus the excellent " Well Baby Please Dont Go", with the
the opener "something I used to play at the Cavern !"
So, what about the rest? Too much Yoko for popular opinion (although
some of the songs are better than given credit for ) too much "sloganeering", sure .
The package is of its time, the vinyl better than the modern cd, but interesting!
Not for the casual fan, but if you want an album from 1972 that
speaks (and sings )from the heart. try it!
