The original PCS 7124 1970 Vinyl pressing has the
'Copyright also claimed by MACLEN (Music) Ltd' printed on the label.

Later releases do not have this printed.

Warning !

I mention it because no one seems to signal it or to be moved in the comments ... AT ALL AND AT ALL: ATTENTION! There are two albums "Plastic Ono Band", with exactly the same cover, with nothing written on it, except that the titles inside are not the same ... one of John Lennon and another of Yoko Ono.

The one from John Lennon contains these titles:

1. Mother
2. Hold On
3. I Found Out
4. Working Class Hero
5. Insulation
6. Remember
7. Love
8. Well Well Well
9. Look at Me
10. God
11. My Mummy's Dead

Bonus tracks:

12. Power to the People
13. Do the Oz

And the one from Yoko Ono contains these titles:

1. Why
2. Why Not
3. Greenfield Morning I Pushed Empty Baby Carriage All Over The City
4. AOS
5. Touch Me
6. Paper Shoes

Bonus Tracks:

7. Open Your Box
8. Something More Abstract
9. The South Wind

Thanks to Lennon and Ono for confusing us like that! It's dishonest limit!

I wanted to buy John Lennon's Plastic Ono Band and accidentally, not knowing there was another one, I bought the one from Yoko Ono !!

Nobody warns on the Internet against the confusion between these two albums, that's why I do it here.

speaking of classic : astonishing scream and intensifying musical therapy *****

A beautiful "proper" debut from John, it remains a top 5 (usually #1 on many a critics’ list) essential post Beatle's era solo album without question. Sure there is "Imagine", and the rest of John's catalogue, but this album is his most solidly focused effort from beginning to end, fully holding the listeners attention. "Plastic Ono Band" is smartly conceptual (without being grandiose), deeply personal, painfully honest, and most importantly, visceral, if not therapeutic.

This 1st press 1u 1u plays beautifully, there is as much depth and directness in it's sound as there is in John's intentions. His brave focus on his own identity here is conveyed through the record's warmth and clarity. The latest 2015 vinyl digital remaster is updated to play with so much low end, that some of the original's subtleties and emotive buildups get a little buried or lost, for the unnatural sounding boomy overhaul fills in the space where the original 1u 1u used to breathe and translate. The album, and it's message, was presented correctly the first time, way back in 1970, you dig a pony?!
