The Primal scream is a process of anger relief that allows you regress to times of trouble and release the pain caused by them.
This caused john to go back to his childhood and finally come to terms with the death of his Mother,Julia, who was killed in a road accident by an off duty police officer.
This, the resulting album is the most brutally honest piece of work ever produced by a pop star. The songs have very few overdubs and feature very basic arrangements of of Guitar/Piano (Lennon), Bass (Klaus Voormann) and Drums (Ringo Starr).
They deal with the death of his mother (Mother, My Mummy's Dead), The Beatles split (I found Out, God)a generally unhappy childhood (Remember,Working Class Hero, Look at Me) and songs that look to the future (Hold On, Love).
Every single song on this album is there for a purpose and every one is a masterpiece. The heights of which John would never reach again. This is his best solo work and indeed the best album of any solo Beatle.
There is both rock and ballads here and I cannot recommmend this album highly enough.
I am ignoring the extra tracks on this album as they have no buisness being there. If ever there was a case for less is more, than this is it. How Yoko allowed these pointless add ons, I will never understand. This is a serious peice of work not a flimsey pop record. Power to the people is not relevant to this work and was recorded after this album was released. Who would want to hear Power to the People after My Mummys Dead?Read more ›
"John Lennon/Plastic Ono Band" mixes Dr Janov's Primal Scream Therapy in "Mother" with the Dylanesque "Working Class Hero" the very eerie "My Mummy's Dead" and the Athiestic, (in every way),"God" with the Line 'I don't believe in Beatles....'. Which was John's way of saying, 'we're not getting back together, I said I wouldn't be singing "She love's you" when I'm thirty and I meant it.'
I remember when I bought that album after hearing the song "Working Class Hero" my Mum saying to me that it was the only time she accepted the use of the word f***.

Only Lennon could make these disparate, sometimes awkward sounds and words so beautiful. The only historic reference point here must be The White Album. Read morePublished 2 days ago by Captain Nikolin of Bridport
