John Lennon, Imagine (1971)
I don’t reckon I ever gave this one a fair go. I do love a lot of John Lennon’s material post-Beatles – how could you not? Unless you weren’t a Beatles fan at all, ever. In which case why are you reading this anyway? I think maybe I dismissed this album because I was such a Paul fan – silly reason to dismiss it. Actually, more likely, it was being so totally over the title song. I did used to have this album on CD – but I didn’t play it all that much. Knew the best songs from compilations already. Funny though, got the LP recently and it just clicked. Love it. A pretty wonderful record. They were all on such a hot-streak post-Beatles huh? Even, in his own way, Ringo too…but particularly John and Paul.
