Whatever John Lennon's reasons for recording a whole album of 1950s rock & roll standards at this advanced stage of his career, he at least made a good job of it. Rock'N'Roll could never recapture the crazed youth that made The Beatles' best cover versions so electrifying, but Lennon, produced with nostalgic glee by Phil Spector, tears into his old favourites and occasionally--as on Ben E. King's "Stand By Me"--hits a real emotional peak. The fabulously atmospheric cover shot of a leather-clad teenage Lennon was, like the record, meant as a fond look backward, and it is fitting. In some ways the 1970s John Lennon was unrecognisable, but in others, as Rock'N'Roll illustrates, he hadn't changed at all. --Taylor Parkes
