Well, hello. Thank you for coming. That kind of thing. And he was saying, Well, okay. So he said that he was going to go and do a concert in Albert Hall and would I come and do it with him because he thought it was kind of interesting what I do. More recently, the album has been credited with having an influence on musicians grossly disproportionate to its sales and visibility like those of The Velvet Underground. The photos were taken with a cheap Instamatic camera on the grounds of Tittenhurst Park their home at the time by actor Daniel Richter —best known for playing Moon-Watcher, the head apeman of Stanley Kubrick 's science fiction film A Space Odyssey.
At the time, Richter lived with Lennon and Ono and worked as their assistant. From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia. Yoko Ono. That's not an opinion widely shared and indeed from the time of its release most others have roundly damned it as being unlistenable. Released as a companion to John Lennon 's soul-baring album of the same title, this remains Ono's most defining aural assault. While her screaming, orgasms and discordant singing were hard to take at that time, the decades since which have produced Pere Ubu , John Lydon , Axl Rose, Bjork and many other singers to challenge us have made this easier.

And there's her free form rehearsal piece AOS with Ornette Coleman and his band in 68, which serves to remind that Ono was making her avant-noise before she hooked up with a Beatle.

The sessions involved screaming and screaming, the idea being to make the mind and body retreat to a primal state and confront fears and deeply hidden emotional scars from childhood, hence the phtos of Ono and Lennon as children on the back of their respective albums.
In Lennon's case these obviously related to family: abandonment by his father when he was a child, the death of his mother in his teenage years just as they were reconnecting after many years apart. I just believe in me, Yoko and me. There is a lot of naked emotion on this singular and courageous album -- it's a John Lennon concept album about being John Lennon -- where therapy and pain is repurposed into art.
There's also a helluva lot of screaming, as on the increasingly intense Well Well Well. What a Bastard the World Is. Waiting for Sunrise. Track Listing - Disc 2. Winter Song. Kite Song. What a Mess.
