3.0 out of 5 stars Some Time in New York City - Still splits Opinion!, 25 May 2009
This review is from: Sometime In New York City (Audio CD)
Following Imagine, John and Yoko had gone to live in New York City, any interviews/ comments in the uk music papers were exciting, as at the time, it felt as they were along way from home. This album was delayed in the UK, the reviews were awful, yet there was for me defining moments.
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!
