Imagine ~ John Lennon. Epic, historically significant and in decent shape 45. A keeper. 1971. The B Side is totally bubbled over and scratched but a blues song not to be reckoned with.. It’s So Hard. Looks like previous owner Brenda Daniels had her way with it. Produced by John, Yoko & Phil Spector. SPOILER ALERT: There’s more Beatles to come this year!! So I’ll go brief (like a 45′) tonight.

from WIKI:

John Winston Ono LennonMBE (9 October 1940 – 8 December 1980) was an English musician and singer-songwriter who rose to worldwide fame as one of the founder members of The Beatles, one of the most commercially successful and critically acclaimed acts in the history of popular music. With Paul McCartney, he formed one of the most celebrated songwriting partnerships of the 20th century   Born and raised in Liverpool, Lennon became involved as a teenager in the skiffle craze; his first band, The Quarrymen, evolved into The Beatles in 1960. As the group disintegrated towards the end of the decade, Lennon embarked on a solo career that produced the critically acclaimed albums John Lennon/Plastic Ono Band and Imagine, and iconic songs such as “Give Peace a Chance” and “Imagine“. After his marriage to Yoko Ono in 1969, he changed his name to John Ono Lennon. Lennon disengaged himself from the music business in 1975 to devote time to his infant son Sean, but re-emerged in 1980 with a new album, Double FantasyHe was murdered three weeks after its release.

The Plastic Ono Band is a conceptual supergroup formed by John Lennon and Yoko Ono in 1969 before the dissolution of the Beatles. Among the various other members of the band were Eric Clapton, artist Klaus Voormann, future Yes drummer Alan WhiteDelaney and Bonnie Bramlett, & friends, the Who‘s drummerKeith Moon, New York band Elephant’s MemoryBilly PrestonNicky HopkinsPhil Spector, drummer Jim Keltner, and, in a 2009 revival, Sean Lennon.  In 2010, Yoko Ono discussed the origin of the Plastic Ono Band name: “As I was asked to do a show in Berlin before John and I got together, I wanted to use four plastic stands with tape recorders in each one of them, as my band. I told that story to John, and he immediately coined the phrase PLASTIC ONO BAND.”
