Editorial Reviews

"John Lennon / Plastic Ono Band" was John Lennon's first solo studio album after the break up of The Beatles. Both John & Yoko had been undergoing primal scream therapy in the lead up to the recording of the album and both this and Yoko Ono's companion album ("Yoko Ono / Plastic Ono Band") were deeply influenced by their therapy. This latest addition to Eagle's acclaimed Classic Albums series explores the creation of this groundbreaking album through new interviews, archive footage and detailed analysis of the original multi-track masters. Interviewees include Ringo Starr, Yoko Ono and bass player Klaus Voorman.

TRACK LISTING: Features excerpts from: Mother - Hold On - Isolation - I Found Out - Love - God - Working Class Hero - and more...

The 'Classic Albums' series document the making of seminal pop albums
(Paul Simon's 'Graceland', Bob Marley's 'Catch a Fire', Fleetwood
Mac's 'Rumours', to name but a few of the previous releases) through
interviews with participants and associates and the playing of master
tapes (more on that later). This new 52' feature documents the making
of John Lennon's first 'proper' (i.e. accessible to the public at
large) studio album, 'John Lennon/Plastic Ono Band', recorded in the
fall of 1970 and released in December of that year.

Although light on the rare video side of things - there appears to be
no available footage of the sessions, so the producers have collected
little-seen (but previously circulating) clips of John attending the
Alexandra Palace psychedelic event in London (29 April 1967) and
sequences from the BBC '24 Hour' documentary (shown on 15 December
1969) -, the real treat for Beatles videos collectors are
previously-unseen excerpts of John and Yoko's appearance on
'Parkinson' (17 July 1971) which, to my knowledge, haven't been seen
since the original transmission. Other clips from that show have been
included in various programmes over the years, notably 'Imagine'
(1972) and 'Imagine, John Lennon' (1988) but the ones on this DVD are
different.

We also get new interviews with people involved in the making of the
album (Yoko Ono, Ringo Starr, Klaus Vormann, engineers Phil McDonald
and John Leckie), music critics (Jann Wenner, who interviewed Lennon
at length in December 1970 for 'Rolling Stone,' and Richard Williams),
the man responsible for inspiring the album (Dr.

Format: DVD
In watching this program I must say that the bonus material was what should have been the basis of the actual program itself, meaning that both engineers Phil McDonald and Richard Lush gave more insight into the making of this seminal album than that of the surviving performers. A lot of visuals were regurgitated from "Lennon Legend" using in fact most of the videos made for "Mother" and "Working Class Hero" and countless familiar clips used before (although they seemed restored for this presentation), that gave a sense of not exploring personal sentiments further once again proveing that the power of Lennon's voiceover drove this documentary. The moments that stood out for me was Phil McDonald playing back a alternative version of "God" that was slightly play faster and with a different vocal style truly what this program needed to unearth more of.

Still having the alternative version of "Instant Karma" from "Top Of The Pops" and the film segments from "Live In New York City" the One To One concert (pristine quality ones hopes the full concert will see the light of day soon!) is shall we say a redeeming factor that can be justidified in the purchase of this product.

I love this dvd! I got it 3 days ago and have watched it in it's entirety three times. It could be better... at one point Elliot Mintz nearly ruined the whole thing IMO, at the end when he says "I've always said only that which is real survives and John Lennon and the Plastic Ono Band was REAL", or something to that effect, repeating an almost sickingly constant theme of the show that this album was "raw" and "real". Mintz is so amazingly cheesey and lame when he says this, and he looks so un-real which makes his statement even worse! He looks like he's made out of plastic!! His skin looks like it has than artificial tan stuff on it and his hair looks like a wig off a mannequin. Ringo saves the vibe though when he follows this with very kind words of John and thoughts of their friendship before it ends. But throughout the show Mintz never says anything even slightly original or interesting. He looks so bizarre and is so uninformative I have no clue why he was in this at all. Also Yoko says some good things, but comes off a bit annoying as she talks about herself in this as much as she talks about John. Another annoying moment is when the song Mother is playing, only to be interrupted with the talking of Dr.Janov who proceeds to misquote the song saying "I had you, you never had me" changing the meaning of the actual lyric "you had me, I never had you".

That being said this is the best Lennon video to date IMO, better than other docs such as Give Peace a Song, Imagine John Lennon or Lennon vs the U.S. The positives are the interviews with Klaus Voorman and Ringo Starr who are both very insightful and have great comments throughout.

This is a well organized documentary of one of the greatest albums ever made. Having Ringo Starr and Klaus Voorman included with recent recollations of this landmark John Lennon solo album are priceless. My only complaint is that it is not in 5.1 surround sound or at least I haven't found a way to play it in 5.1 sound.

John Lennon is Mr. Rock and Roll to me.

Any attempt to explain his genius is, I think, worth seeing.

The lp "Plastic Ono Band" is in my opinion his greatest lp and one of the greatest rock and roll records of all time.

In this program, Klaus Voormann, one of the two original bass players in the Beatles, lends his insights, as does the Beatles' second drummer (Ringo Starr), Yoko, and others.

The collages are very well done. Watch them at 1/8th speed and see the images run backwards to his childhood.

The extras are worth watching too. I didn't know that the explosion at the end of "Remember" was a last-minute add on.
