John Lennon - Walls And Bridges (1974/2014) High-Fidelity FLAC Stereo 24bit/96kHz

Artist: John Lennon
Title: Walls And Bridges
Genre: Rock, Pop Rock
Label: © Capitol Records | Calderstone Productions
Release Date: 1974/2014 (2010 Remastered)
Quality: High-Fidelity FLAC Stereo 96kHz/24bit

Duration: 46:20
Recorded: July–August 1974 at Record Plant East, New York

"Walls And Bridges? That was beautiful, one of the best albums he made. It's one of the masterpieces of classic rock." Yoko Ono, 2010
By the summer of 1974, John had been living apart from Yoko for nearly a year. Quartered in Los Angeles as he entered a boisterous spell tagged "Lennon's Lost Weekend". He had mislaid his creative focus, too. There were chaotic attempts to record an album of rock'n'roll oldies with Phil Spector, party to forestall a lawsuit from one Morris Levy.
The Spector sessions collapsed, and the legendarily eccentric producer withdrew, taking the tapes with him. This "oldies" project quietly shelved, John consoled himself in the company of famous friends and a lover, May Pang, an assistant to the Lennons in New York. He arranged to produce an album for the great singer Harry Nilsson, called Pussy Cats. And slowly, amidst the turmoil, John regained his musical purpose.
One aspect of this recovery was a return to New York, the city that still connoted, for John, serious work and responsibility, unlike the rootless hedonism that beguiled him in LA. The Record Plant East was booked and work began on the fresh material John was amassing. Like its predecessor Mind Games, the new album would be self-produced. As to the musicians, among familiar names like Jim Keltner, Klaus Voormann and Nicky Hopkins was a host of Lennonesque pseudonyms (Dr. Winston O'Reggae, Rev. Fred Ghurkin, Booker Table & The Maitre D's, etc.) and a couple of luminary guests that included Nilsson and the hottest rock star of the moment, Elton John.
It was Elton who spotted the chart-topping potential of "Whatever Gets You Thru The Night", a storming track to which he contributes. Indeed, he won his friendly bet that this song would be Lennon's first solo Number 1 - for which his "price" would be a guest appearance by John at Elton's Madison Square Garden show. The album's second highlight is the mesmerising "#9 Dream", which is both a nod to John's abiding affinitywith that number and a brilliant evocation of the lucid state between sleep and awaking. Its untranslatable "Ah! Bowakawa poussé, poussé" is, in fact, a mysterious fragment from such a dream.
Those songs already nudge Walls And Bridges towards greatness but they are only two of many. There is the charming diversion "Surprise Surprise (Sweet Bird Of Paradox)", and that rarest of rarities, a Lennon instrumental, this one called "Beef Jerky". A fascinating curio is "Steel And Glass", so reminiscent of Imagine's "How Do You Sleep?", and plausibly assumed to be about John's estranged manager Allen Klein.
By far the biggest part of the album, though, is occupied by music of loss and loneliness. It is impossible not to characterise Walls And Bridges as "the Lost Weekend album". We are pointed to the thought that such unhappiness did, at least, give John a musical shot in the arm. Be that as it may, Walls And Bridges really is the great overlooked record of John Lennon's solo years.
This digital remaster of Walls And Bridges was transferred from Protools 192 kHz (Prism AD8) into an analogue EMI TG12410 desk, into Sadie at 96kHz/24bit.

John Lennon - Rock 'N' Roll (1975/2014) High-Fidelity FLAC Stereo 24bit/96kHz

Artist: John Lennon
Title: Rock 'N' Roll
Genre: Rock
Label: © EMI Records | Calderstone Productions
Release Date: 1975/2014
Quality: High-Fidelity FLAC Stereo 96kHz/24bit
Source: HDTracks
Duration: 39:49
Recorded: A&M Studios, October 1973; Record Plant Studios (East), 21–25 October 1974

Rock 'n' Roll is the sixth studio album by John Lennon. Released in 1975, it is an album of late 1950s and early 1960s songs as covered by Lennon. Recording the album was problematic and spanned an entire year: Phil Spector produced sessions in October 1973 at A&M Studios, and Lennon produced sessions in October 1974 at Record Plant Studios (East). Lennon was being sued by Morris Levy over copyright infringement of one line in his song "Come Together". As part of an agreement, Lennon had to include three Levy-owned songs on Rock 'n' Roll. Spector ran away with the session recordings, later being involved in a motor accident, which left the album's tracks unrecoverable until the beginning of the Walls and Bridges sessions. With Walls and Bridges coming out first, featuring one Levy-owned song, Levy sued Lennon expecting to see Lennon's Rock 'n' Roll album.
The album was released in February 1975, reaching number 6 in both the United Kingdom and the United States, later being certified gold in both countries. The album was supported by the single "Stand by Me", which peaked at number 20 in the US, and 30 in the UK. The album's cover was taken by Jürgen Vollmer during the Beatles' stay in Hamburg. The album was Lennon's last until 1980; he took a hiatus from recording to raise his son, Sean Lennon.
