John Lennon plays for Yoko

By  | October 7, 2014

All of the studio albums that John Lennon released between 1970 and 1984, including Plastic Ono BandImagine and Mind Games, are now available for streaming on Spotify alongside three Lennon comps that came out in 2010. Power to the People collects Lennon’s singles, including non-album cuts like “Give Peace a Chance” and “Cold Turkey.” Gimme Some Truth breaks up the Lennon catalog into four themes, including protest songs, love songs, life ruminations and covers of tunes that inspired him. And the John Lennon Signature Box, which contains the albums, singles and a disc of “home tapes” demo recordings, including versions of “Mother,” “God” and “Isolation.”

Although Lennon’s late Sixties experimental collaborations with Yoko Ono – including Unfinished Music No. 1: Two Virgins, Unfinished Music No. 2: Life With the Lions and Wedding Album – are still not yet available on Spotify, the additions include the albums he co-released with Ono in the Eighties, Double Fantasy and Milk and Honey.

Earlier this year, excerpts from joint interviews that Lennon and Ono sat for in the late Sixties and early Seventies were animated as part of PBS’ Blank on Blank interview series. In them, they talked about their relationship. “If you love somebody, you can’t be with them enough,” Lennon said. “There’s no such thing. We don’t want to be apart.”

In other Lennon news, manuscripts of two books he issued during his Beatles years, In His Own Write and A Spaniard in the Works, sold for a collective $2.9 million at auction, more than twice what they were estimated to sell for. Additionally, a letter of apology that Lennon wrote to Phil Spector, apologizing for Who drummer Keith Moon and singer-songwriter Harry Nilsson’s rude behavior during the sessions for his Rock ‘n’ Roll album, went to auction. The letter, which was titled “A Matter of Pee” sold for £53,000 (more than US $85,000), according to The Independent. It was initially estimated to go for £7,000 (a little over $11,000).
