A Tribute to John Lennon

Today on the 32nd anniversary of John Lennon’s passing we’d like to celebrate some of the lesser-known gems from John’s solo career.  They’re definitely not unknown to Beatles fans, but try finding one of these tracks on the radio.

The first song is “Remember” from the phenomenal John Lennon/Plastic Ono Band LP from 1970.  The decision to strip away most of the adornments from the production and to present the album as stark  and real makes it a much more compelling album than the more successful Imagine LP released the next year.  Listen to “Crippled Inside” (taken from Imagine) and hear the difference for yourself.
