John Lennon and Yoko Oko, accompanied by New York’s Elephant’s Memory, sing and scream freely against sexism in “Woman Is the Nigger Of The World” and “Sisters, O Sisters.” They protest incarceration in “John Sinclair,” “Attica State,” and “Born In A Prison,” colonialism in “Sunday Bloody Sunday” and “The Luck Of The Irish,” and racism in “Angela.” The richness of Phil Spector’s production fills out the danceable grooves on nearly every track. Also featured is Lennon’s paean to his adopted home, “New York City,” with allusions to doping clerics and transsexual rockers as well as the highly quotable line, “What a bad-ass city!” On the bonus disc, Lennon and Ono get it on with Zappa and the Mothers in live sets from London and New York. Things heat up considerably with “Cold Turkey,” freak out with “Don’t Worry Kyoko,” and veer into the ridiculous with audience participation on “Scumbag.” Some Time In New York City is some of the groovin’-est, most tuneful agit-prop ever committed to disc.

Japanese vinyl pressings are highly sought after by audiophiles and collectors, due to their premium sound quality and beautifully presented packaging. The sonic quality of Japanese records is regarded as the best in the world. No wonder all the original Mobile Fidelity Sound Lab records were pressed in Japan! The covers are printed on better quality heavy stock paper too. Original Japanese pressings are becoming scarcer ~ and therefore more collectable and valuable every year.
