John's voice is at the center of every track and he uses his phenomenal vocal power differently for what each song demands. On "Mother", he nails down the progression of his scarred youth and where he was currently - full of howls of pain. The fiery angst of "Well Well Well" and "I Found Out" showcases John's fuzzy guitar stabs and are key to its punk rock foundation. He sings with the most delicate care in his ballads "Love" and "Hold On John". And, in "God", he really drops the boom on his past and gets a fuller knowledge of himself. It's also the song that John really put his own safety on the line.
"Plastic Ono Band" is amongst the most open music ever recorded and it's the consummation of Lennon's vocal talents. He painted a superb portrait of the inside of his soul, which he could only express through rock music because it had always been the central experience to his life. Sometimes songs that test an artist's sanity are useful for others. My ears have never really left this album. The three bonus cuts on disc one, "Give Peace A Chance", "Cold Turkey" and "Instant Karma" integrates very well. The ultimate mixes sound crystal clear. And it's convenient to have my two personal favorite political pieces from John, the razor-sharp analysis of "Working Class Hero" and "Instant Karma" on the same disc.
The second disc, consisting of outtakes of everything on the first disc, has value too. Even in these run throughs, John's vocals convince me that his singing is practically peerless. The unspliced version of "Working Class Hero" is from his "Anthology" box set with that delightful crack in his voice towards the end. It's as great as the original. And, I just might prefer this version of "Cold Turkey". Experimentation perfected.
