What can be said about this CD............John's comeback album and sadly his final. After years of baking the bread and looking after Sean, he picked up his guitar and went back into the studio to record classics such as Watching the Wheels, Im losing you, and the moving Just Like Starting Over.
Returning to his "Beatle-Days" with Woman, a track he describes in interviews as reminding him of singing "Girl" in the Beatles, Johns voice is at his strongest in years
Moving on to the funkier Clean Up Time, the albums diversity is one of its strong points.......which leads nicely into the Yoko tracks.
Hmmm. Im not much of a Yoko fan, but for once I can actually listen to her tracks without rushing for the off button. Production is nice and she is making a good effort throughout the main.
As a bonus on this re-issue we get 3 new tracks. One of them, Help Me To Help Myself, is a previously unheard Lennon composition. Its opening lines are very moving : "Though I try so very hard to stay alive....." The song itself is a very nice piano piece, and one can only imagine what it would have sounded like once finished properly.
Walking on Thin Ice is the track that John was working on the night he was killed. Here it is presented as a bonus track.
All in all one of Johns best solo CD's. GO GET IT
