Format: Audio CD
In 1974 John & Yoko briefly separated, John moving to L.A., Yoko staying in New York. During this period, John released two LPs, 'Walls & Bridges' and 'Rock and Roll'. Though it appeared at the time that Yoko was not doing anything, in reality she was touring her native Japan and recording this album. The album was shelved after her reconciliation with Lennon.
Many of the albums tracks have been re-recorded and are featured on other albums, and most of the album was featured as disc 6 of the Onobox. This cd release marks the first time the complete album has seen the light of day in over 20 years. Although many tracks were re-recorded later, the highlights of the album seem to lie in the ones that were not.
Of the re-recordings, there are some that faired better in their original forms as released on this album ("Loneliness", "Dogtown"); others were better suited in their new versions ("Will You Touch Me", "Tomorrow May Never Come"); while others are just too different in style to compare to their re-recorded versions ("She Gets Down on Her Knees", "Hard Times Are Over"). The one song that did not change much is "It Happened". In the '81 release of the song, there is a dialog between John & Yoko before the song begins, also Yoko starts the final refrain later than on this original version, but other than that, the song remains the same.
As mentioned earlier, the highlights of the album are in the songs that were never re-recorded. Songs like the eerie "Winter Friend", the lively "Heartburn Stew" and what could have easily been the album's single, "Yes, I'm A Witch".

A great CD. Not Yoko's best as were Feeling The Space and "AIU". The vocals aren't as crisp and clear. But the writing and arrangements are superb, as always with Yoko..

Recorded in 1974, "A Story" is the logical follow-up to her albums "Approximately Infinite Universe" and "Feeling the Space" (both issued in 1973). Nine of the 11 tracks were released on "Onobox" in 1992, although in a different order, and with other tracks not on this album interspersed in them. Two tracks are new on this 1997 release: "She Gets Down on Her Knees" and "Hard Times Are Over." "New" is a relative term, however, since both appeared in different forms on later albums: "Hard Times Are Over" ended "Double Fantasy" (1980) as a duet with John Lennon, and "She Gets Down on Her Knees" was redone on "Season of Glass" (1981). The original versions in their intended order are valuable to know. By 1974, Yoko had evolved into a mainstream singer and songwriter. It is a shame her fans couldn't hear this album then, but it is available now. Bonuses on this Rykodisc USA release include three archival tracks and a set of pictures of her as a child, including one of her dressed as Shirley Temple at a costume party (where she won first prize). This fascinating album is a must for all true Yoko fans.
