Forsinket jubilæumsudgave af John Lennons første soloalbum

af Karsten Jørgensen

John Lennons første rigtige soloalbum fra 1970, ”John Lennon/Plastic Ono Band”, bliver nu udgivet i en lettere forsinket 50-års jubilæumsudgave.

Side 1 på den danske udgave af ‘John Lennon/Plastic Ono Band*

Albummet, der i væsentlig grad var inspireret af Johns oplevelser med primal-terapi hos psykiateren Arthur Janov, bliver generelt betragtet som Lennons bedste soloalbum, og har gennem årene fået høje placeringer på mange førende musikmagasiners lister over alletiders bedste rockplader.

Således var pladen i 1987 nr. 4 på Rolling Stone’s liste over ”De 100 Bedste Albums fra de sidste tyve år”, og i 2012 var det placeret som nr. 23 på samme medies liste over ”500 Greatest Albums of All Time”.

Bokssættet, 6 cd’er og 2 bluray + en bog

Genudgivelsen, som finder sted den 16. april, bliver et bokssæt med otte skiver under titlen ”John Lennon/Plastic Ono Band: The Ultimate Collection”, og består af 6 cd’er og 2 bluray.

Det oprindelige albums 11 sange, deriblandt singlen ”Mother” og markante numre som ”Working Class Hero”, ”Love” og ”Isolation”, er på bokssættet vokset til 159 numre på cd’erne og 131 på de to bluray – nye mix, uudgivne demoer, studie-outtakes osv.

Den danske udgave af singlen “Mother”, 1970

Lennon indspillede albummet i september og oktober 1970, co-produceret af ham selv, Yoko Ono og Phil Spector, og med en perlerække af tidens ypperste musikere, som Ringo Starr, Klaus Voormann og Billy Preston.
