Lennon's classic Rock 'n' Roll, one of the most highly revered albums of his career, will also be released on November 2nd, the fourth of Lennon's solo albums to be remixed and remastered.

The album, which was originally released in 1975, appears now with four bonus tracks and a new selection of b/w Lennon photographs in the booklet.

The bonus tracks are: "To Know Her Is To Love Her" and "Angel Baby," both remastered, "Since My Baby Left Me," a never-before issued version of the track included on Menlove Avenue, and a reprise of "Just Because" with an alternative ending and a very special Christmas message to Paul, George, Ringo, Yoko and the British people. Yoko was inspired to include this version of the track for all Lennon fans across the world.

Rock 'n' Roll paid tribute to Lennon's teenage idols, including Chuck Berry, Gene Vincent, Fats Domino, Little Richard, Ben E. King and Buddy Holly. Sessions for the album began in LA in 1973 with Phil Spector producing. Lennon returned to the album and completed it the following year, retaining three tracks produced by Spector. The album was originally produced by John Lennon.

saw this was coming out but don't think I've seen in on here

looking forward to checking it out (very much so)

come on, light touch on the digital remastering (hate when the engineer tries to be a hero... like a remastered version of Blues For Allah I ended up with in the early 90s where Jerry's solo's were dropped almost out of the mix... brilliant work that)
