John Lennon's attempt at politically-charged songs came up flat, compared to the rest of his solo catalog. Except for "Woman is the N----r of the World", the rest of his songs on the album don't catch fire, are too topical and now dated ("John Sinclair", "Attica State") and the band he chose to back him, Elephant's Memory, clearly was a bad choice of musicians (for further proof, listen to 'Live in New York City' and hear how disjointed the performances are). Ironically, Yoko Ono's tracks aren't that bad ("Born in a Prison" for one), as is the case with her material from 'Double Fantasy' and 'Milk and Honey'. Sure, Lennon fans who bought any albums billed as 'John & Yoko' probably wanted to skip over her songs, but she should be given a chance - she was musically capable of more than screaming like a banshee while writhing around in a bag). The 'Live Jam' bonus disc, particular the Frank Zappa & the Mothers tracks, is of some interest - there wasn't much in the way of live Lennon, but what little there is, is represented on this disc from 1969 (cast of 1,000's) and 1971 (Plastic Ono Mothers).
