Menlove Ave

Menlove Avenue. An early attempt at a posthumous John Lennon LP that collected outtakes from his relatively short solo career and not particularly choice outtakes focusing mostly on his Rock n Roll and Walls and Bridges LPs. None of the tracks from the album’s first side appear on the John Lennon Anthology so I guess this release will still be sought after by some Lennon completists. Sort of an odd release though. 1986.
