BRAND NEW - PUB DATE: Sept. 24, 2024 - The definitive exploration - told in revelatory detail - of the writing, recording, and release of John's celebrated and magical fourth solo album 'Mind Games', and the era that inspired it.
Described by Yoko as "ahead of its time," Mind Games is a breakthrough album from John in which he employs a Plastic Ono Band comprising the cream of the crop of New York session musicians - a fan favorite that remains a cult classic ever since its first release on Oct. 29, 1973. This insightful and beautiful book presents handwritten lyrics, letters, artworks by John and Yoko and previously unseen photography alongside their firsthand commentary about the lyrics, songs, and album artwork, as well as contributions from the musicians, friends, engineers and key figures involved in the making of this landmark album.
'Mind Games' was the product of an exceptionally turbulent time for the Lennons. While Nixon and Hoover were attempting to have John deported, John and Yoko endured endless litigations and as the popular press turned on them once again, they bravely rose above it all, continuing their campaigns for non-violent peaceful protest to end the war in Vietnam and for equal rights for women. It was also an exciting time when they both re-embraced mysticism and magical thinking. In this sumptuous volume, text and images from the key players are woven together to reveal not only the details behind the creation, recording, and release of this groundbreaking commercial and skillfully crafted recording, but also to shed new light on a period of transformation and experimentation for John and Yoko. Hardcover, 288 pages with 750 color illustrations. List price, $60.00.
