    Scott and I complete our review and discussion of the 1988 film 'Imagine: John Lennon', a film dear to both of our hearts. We pick up one of the great rock life stories from 1968 until its tragic ending. Scott and I will be reconvening in the next month to review ‘How I Won The War’ so stay (metaphorically) tuned for that!

    REPOST - Episode 25- Revolution 9, John Lennon, Drugs, Vietnam and Ordinary Life

    REPOST - ORIGINAL FILE REMOVED

    We end the year with a deep dive into the much-maligned sound collage extraordinaire from John Lennon and Yoko Ono. There are multiple sound clips from the piece itself as well as contributions from well-respected music critic and Beatles author Allan Kozinn. Thanks also to Richard Buskin, Robert Rodriguez and Jason Kruppa , the latter of the 'Producing The Beatles' podcast, for their earlier work on the subject and inspiration for my own version.
