[edit] Information

1971’s Imagine isn’t John Lennon’s best album, but it remains his most famous. 1970’s Plastic Ono Band was Lennon’s first full musical album as a solo artist, and it’s easily his finest work. He and wife Yoko Ono created some very experimental releases like 1969’s The Wedding Album and he put out some excellent singles like “Cold Turkey” and “Instant Karma!”, but John didn’t produce a full rock LP until POB.

It proved to be a difficult record to top. POB came during a period of severe introspection for John and he tried to exorcise many demons with it. POB remains likely the most personal album from any former Beatle, and it’s also arguably the best of the bunch.

By Imagine, John had mellowed a little, and the record showed a gentler side. Actually, that’s not fair; POB had some quiet and lovely tunes like “Look At Me”. Nonetheless, Imagine came across as a sunnier album as a whole; it definitely had some harsh moments, but they didn’t dominate the proceedings as they had with POB.

It’s also a more accessible piece, largely thanks to the title tune. “Imagine” has become a verified classic and may well be the most-played of all solo Beatle tunes.

It’s an invaluable program for fans. We rarely see such candid and revealing glimpses of any musical artist, much less such a legendary one. From start to finish - which includes a demo version of “Look At Me”, by the way - Truth is a joy to watch.
