This review is from: Feeling Space (Audio CD)This was Yoko's last LP for Apple released in 1973 and utilised many of the musicians that her husband John used on his 'Mind Games' album. Both albums were released at around the same time.
This is probably one of Yoko's most mainstream releases and the best one to start with if you don't fancy the early 90's Ryko compilation CD. There's hardly any 'screaming' on this one, which can be off putting if you're new to Yoko's 'thing'. The album was well produced & engineered at the time of its original release and sounds even better now thanks to some gentle re-mastering (thankfully not just a case of turning the volume up in a mastering studio somewhere and then calling it "re-mastered" because it's louder...other artists please take note).
Anyway, this review pertains to the mini-LP paper sleeve edition from 2007 and the attention to detail has been carried out very well. Even the original Garrod & Lofthouse plain white inner sleeve has been re-produced faithfully with just "PATENT Nos. 1,125,555" & "MADE IN GREAT BRITAIN" written at the bottom. With such attention to detail it's a crying shame that Yoko couldn't strike a deal with Apple Corps to allow the original LP label to appear on the CD itself and original Apple logos to appear on the sleeve as well. (Yoko now holds the copyright to these early 70's releases and not Apple). Maybe all the red tape that would needed to be waded through was just too much for anyone to face.Presumably the other releases in this series have suffered the same fate. Although the original catalogue number (SAPCOR 26) survived the air brushing on the top right of the front of the sleeve.
I'll take off my 'anorak' now and let you, hopefully, click the BUY button.
