The video for the song “Look At Me” has unpublished images of John Lennon and Yoko Ono and serves to promote the box “The Ultimate Collection” by John Lennon / Plastic Ono Band, which arrives on April 23 via Capitol / UMe.
A new video was released, with unpublished images from 1968, for John Lennon’s song “Look At Me”, from 1970. The black and white and color video, shot on 8 mm film, presents Lennon and Yoko Ono on his home in Weybridge, Surrey, and serves to promote John Lennon’s “The Ultimate Collection” box / Plastic Ono Band, an eight-disc edition that celebrates 50 years since John Lennon’s solo debut album.
Originally released in December 1970, “John Lennon / Plastic Ono Band” was recorded shortly after the Beatles split. The disc, which was co-produced by Phil Spector and once described by Lennon as «the best thing»That he had done, featured Ringo Starr on drums and Klaus Voormann on bass and included the songs“ Working Class Hero ”,“ Isolation ”and“ God ”.
Yoko Ono personally supervised the production and creative direction of the new reissue, which is already on sale and includes rare demos, rehearsals, outtakes, jams and studio conversations, as well as 87 recordings never heard before. The complete live recording session of Ono’s LP, “Yoko Ono / Plastic Ono Band”, is also included, presenting the songs in their complete extension for the first time and without editing by.
In the preface to the box set accompanying book, Ono wrote: «With the Plastic Ono Band albums, John and I liked the idea of this really crude, basic and true reality that we were going to give to the world. We were influencing other artists, giving them courage, giving dignity to a certain style of vulnerability and strength that at the time was not accepted in society. It was a revolution for a Beatle to say: “Listen: I am human, I am real”. It took a lot of courage for him to do it».
