The dignity and generosity of the author is a human quality we should all aspire to. INFINITE UNIVERSE AT DAWN signed autographed by YOKO ONO (GENESIS PUBLICATIONS) Deluxe Version. With the recent 50th anniversary deluxe re-release of John Lennon's first monumentally intimate solo album, Plastic Ono Band, Yoko's influence in exploring the various artistic vehicles by which raw emotion can be creatively and comprehensively conveyed, this volume takes on added significance.
Lennon's first solo post-Beatles artistic statement is widely considered one of the most autobiographical declarations of pure and raw emotional catharsis. Of course, the primal scream therapy the couple was introduced to at that time was also key in motivating their creativity. The therapeutic techniques that were innovated and embraced by Mr. Arthur Janov of California should also to be considered instrumental in terms of inspiration and enabling a leap of faith.The Beatles, that unforgettable and timeless musical quartet from the eternally resilient port of Liverpool, England. With all due respect to musical musical titans like Prince, Frank Sinatra, the Rolling Stones (RIP Charlie Watts), Michael Jackson and even Elvis Presley, nobody in popular music was able to create so many diverse musical statements of quality in such a short period of time. With the Beatles it was not only musical evolution but rather music and social evolution. The backbone of the prolific nature of the group was the Lennon McCartney songwriting partnership which was motivated by what Beatle producer Sir George Martin coined a very healthy competition. Of course, George Harrison needs to be credited for having what Sinatra felt what the greatest love song of the last century, namely Something from Abbey Road. Many feel song Taxman which opened Revolver was his first true musical tour de force. Taxman had more character than Don't Bother Me, If I Needed Someone or I Need You.
Pushing boundaries is what the Beatles were all about. Further, the Beatles had little if any musical reference points given nobody before them created something like Eleanor Rigby, The Inner Light, or even A Day in the Life, at least not in the popular music genre.
They knew how to take the best from many different musical and global traditions and presented a form different if not subjectively greater than the disparate elements utilized. After the breakup came universal songs like Imagine, #9 Dream, Band on the Run, My Love, Too Many People, Uncle Albert, Isolation, Working Class Hero, My Sweet Lord, Hold On, Well Well Well, Gimme Some Truth, Give Peace a Chance, Cold Turkey, Instant Karma, Isn't it a Pity?What is Life, All things Must Pass, the Concert for Bangladesh as well as Ringo's commercial successes that can not be overlooked. Time magazine officially commemorated Paul McCartney and Wings solo accomplishments that were stratospheric in nature. Jet, London Town, With a little luck, Mull of Kintyre (record breaker in the midst of the punk rock movement), Here Today, Wanderlust, Arrow through my heart, No Values and the Michael Jackson Off the Wall (MJ rendition of Girlfriend) and record breaking Thriller LP contributions (The Girl is Mine), Flowers in the Dirt, Mrs. Vanderbilt, Girlfriend, The Fireman and so many others.
McCartney plays live and gives you nearly three hours of nonstop musical bliss that provides the soundtrack of the sixties onwards. Lennon once told historical talk show host Dick Cavett that if so much creativity was produced in the post Beatles era, Yoko should be given credit if one truly believes she was the catalyst to break the group up. Of course, in hindsight and as confirmed by McCartney in interviews with the late David Frost, the group was already breaking up way before the advent of this influential figure in Lennon's artistic life. Some biographical accounts indicate Lennon wanted to leave the group as early as 1966 after live performances ended at Candlestick Park in San Francisco and he ventured off to Almeria, Spain to film How I Won the War with legendary film director Richard Lester. During Pride month, many recall Yoko's compositions and contributions including her iconic song Every Man Has a Man who Loves Him based on Every Man Has a Woman Who Loves Him.Yoko has become a symbol of innovation, struggle and resilience. As she once said, she took all the energy that was intrinsic in the hate directed towards her and metamorphosized it into positive solution focused energy.
It is important to remember the value of intrapersonal and well as interpersonal intelligence. With the recent re-release of the Imagine album and iconic Imagine film, a resurgence in the body of work of the artistic coupling known as John and Yoko has come to the creative forefront.
