"... there is evident affection throughout, excellent musicianship and some fun post-modern nods to the audience ... on all tracks, Lennon’s singing is superb, especially a passionate and epic Stand By Me ... nobody can teach this man anything about generating primal rock excitement."
- BBC Music

Released in 1975, this was John Lennon's last album before his five-year hiatus to become a house husband and raise his son Sean. As the title promises, it contains classic rock 'n' roll from the 1950s and early 1960s that influenced and inspired both Lennon and the Beatles and was co-produced by Phil Spector, the same producer responsible for much of that influential music. A star-studded lineup of studio musicians worked with Lennon on this record, names like Leon Russell, José Feliciano, Steve Cropper and Hal Blaine, as well as a full horn section.

What is High-Resolution Audio?

High-resolution audio offers the highest-fidelity available, far surpassing the sound quality of traditional CDs. When you listen to music on a CD or tracks purchased via consumer services such as iTunes, you are hearing a low-resolution version of what was actually recorded and mastered in the studio. ProStudioMasters offers the original studio masters — exactly as the artist, producers and sound engineers mastered them — for download, directly to you.

What do I need for playback?

You may need additional software / hardware to take full advantage of the higher 24-bit high-res audio formats, but any music lover that has heard 16-bit vs 24-bit will tell you it's worth it!
