Rock 'n' Roll is the sixth studio album by John Lennon. Released in 1975, it is an album of late 1950s and early 1960s songs as covered by Lennon. Recording the album was problematic and spanned an entire year: Phil Spector produced sessions in October 1973 at A&M Studios, and Lennon produced sessions in October 1974 at Record Plant Studios (East).

John Lennon released 'Rock 'N' Roll' in February 1975. Rock 'N' Roll – which was going to be titled Oldies but Mouldies until a black-and-white photo of a 20-year-old Lennon in Hamburg inspired the cover art and a new title – managed to make it to No. 6, and was Lennon's last album before his five-year retirement. When he resurfaced in late 1980 with Double Fantasy, he was sober, reunited with Ono, a father to a five-year-old son and at a place far from the one he was stumbling through when he recorded Rock 'N' Roll. Three weeks after his comeback record came out, he was killed.
The final studio album released by John Lennon before his five-year retirement into househusbandry, Rock 'N' Roll was a collection of cover versions of 1950s and early 1960s songs recorded during the legendary Lost Weekend. A parallel can be drawn between Rock 'N' Roll and The Beatles' Get Back project, which was eventually released as Let It Be. Both were an attempt to revert back to basics; both became mired in recriminations and disillusionment; and both had their releases delayed, with another studio album issued in the meantime. The Rock 'N' Roll album was recorded in two distinct stages. The first took place in October to December 1973 in Los Angeles with Phil Spector producing, and the second in New York in October 1974, produced by John Lennon
McCartney in turn introduced the group to his pal George Harrison, and despite reservations about his age-Harrison was two years younger than Lennon-he too became a member of the Quarrymen. The band eventually coalesced around the foursome of Lennon, McCartney, Harrison and bassist Stu Sutcliffe, and rechristened themselves the Beatles in August 1960. With drummer Pete Best also on board, the group played countless gigs over the next few years. In America, Beatlemania kicked off when the Fab Four appeared on the February 9, 1964, episode of The Ed Sullivan Show. A staggering 73 million viewers in 23 million households watched the fresh-faced, suit-clad quartet perform "I Want To Hold Your Hand," a song then perched at the top of the charts. The Beatles set the template for boy bands, although there was nothing pre-fab or manufactured about them.
The Music of Lennon & McCartney. The Music of Lennon & McCartney is a 1965 British television special honouring the Lennon–McCartney songwriting partnership of John Lennon and Paul McCartney of the English rock band the Beatles. It was produced by Granada Television and aired on that network on 16 December 1965 before receiving a national broadcast the following evening.
So over the last decade or two, McCartney has fully embraced his role in the Fab Four while still looking forward to new vistas, such as the Fireman, his groove-minded side project represented Tuesday with a pair of songs. He was the gracious and politic host he’s always been, dedicating his 1973 hit My Love to the woman who inspired it, Linda McCartney, who died in 1998. The closest the show came to a barb was the subtle placement of I’m Looking Through You right after that
Presented on this album are Lennon's rough mixes of what became his "Rock & Roll" album. Production of this LP was halted and about 3000 copies survive. There are the steps to see if your version is the original: 1) If any copy has the word GREATEST (instead of GREAT) printed on the spine-it's a fake.
