Default John Lennon And Yoko Ono\'s \"milk And Honey\" Remastered

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
October 19, 2001

JOHN LENNON AND YOKO ONO's "MILK AND HONEY‚"
ALBUM OF 1984 IS SET FOR REISSUE, DIGITALLY
REMASTERED WITH PREVIOUSLY UNRELEASED \
BONUS TRACKS AND EXCERPTS OF HIS FINAL
INTERVIEW

Release follows historic "Come Together" all-star
tribute concert, broadcast live from New York to
benefit victims of September 11th events

Expanded edition of album set for October 23rd
in-store date, follow-up to last year's reissues of
"Imagine," "Plastic Ono Band‚" and "Double Fantasy‚"
albums

The long-awaited reissue of the 1984 album
MILK AND HONEY by John Lennon and Yoko Ono, in
a digitally remastered, newly-expanded edition (with
three bonus tracks and exclusive interview material)
has been set for October 23rd in-store date on
Capitol Records, it was announced today. The release
comes two weeks after the once-in-a-lifetime all-star
benefit tribute concert televised live from New York in
honor of rock and roll's greatest working-class hero,
a concert that still reverberates in the hearts of
audiences across North America.

MILK AND HONEY, comprised of individual songs by
John and Yoko, as well as collaborations by the couple,
stands in rock history as the only original LP to be
posthumously released after Lennon's tragic death
of December 8, 1980, containing songs he worked on
that year. The bulk of John and Yoko's final recordings
together recordings were first heard on the classic 1980
album, Double Fantasy, which was reissued worldwide by
Capitol Records and EMI (in a newly-expanded, digitally
remastered edition) on October 9, 2000, the day that
would have been John Lennon's 60th birthday.

The new commemorative edition of MILK AND HONEY
reprises the track sequence of the original album, which
was originally issued by Polygram in 1984, and has been
out-of-print for more than a decade. As on Double Fantasy,
John and Yoko are heard taking turns on lead vocals on
alternate tracks throughout the album, opening with John
on "I'm Stepping Out," followed by: "Sleepless Night" (Yoko),
"I Don't Wanna Face It" (John), "Don't Be Scared" (Yoko),
"Nobody Told Me" (John; a hit single that reached #5 in
the U.S. and #6 in England), "O'Sanity" (Yoko), "Borrowed
Time" (John), "Your Hands" (Yoko), "(Forgive Me) My Little
Flower Princess" (John), "Let Me Count The Ways" (Yoko),
"Grow Old With Me" (John), and "You're The One" (Yoko).

In addition, the new CD of MILK AND HONEY will
feature three bonus tracks:

"Every Man Has A Woman Who Loves Him," John's vocal
of Yoko's song from Double Fantasy (this rare track
previously included on the limited-edition 1990 boxed-set,
Lennon);

"I'm Stepping Out," a previously unreleased home
recording by John, of MILK AND HONEY's opening track;

"I'm Moving On," a previously unreleased home
recording sung by Yoko.

MILK AND HONEY concludes with audio excerpts from
the final interview given by John Lennon - taped just hours
before he was killed - in which he is clearly upbeat
about life, recording and the prospect of once again touring.
The historic reissue was digitally remastered at
Sterling Sound by George Marino. The CD booklet will
include song lyrics and 14 new and rare photographs.

The release of MILK AND HONEY comes three weeks
after the historic concert of October 2nd, "Come Together -
A Night for John Lennon's Words & Music," broadcast live
on TNN from Radio City Music Hall in New York, one week
before John's birthday. Originally organized last year to
raise funds and consciousness for gun control and
issues of non-violence, the concert was re-grooved to
support those lives changed by the events of
September 11th, dedicated to the "working-class heroes"
who sacrificed their lives trying to help save others.

As mentioned above, MILK AND HONEY follows last year's
expanded reissue of Double Fantasy on October 9, 2000.
That date also saw the reissue of the digitally remastered
version of John Lennon/Plastic Ono Band, his first major
post-Beatles solo album under his own name, originally
released in 1970. The two reissues coincided with the
opening of the world's first permanent John Lennon
Museum in Tokyo on October 9th. Later that month, the
John Lennon exhibition opened at the Rock and Roll Hall
Of Fame and Museum in Cleveland.

Earlier that year, in March 2000, Capitol reissued
John Lennon's Imagine album (of 1971, the original
follow-up to Plastic Ono Band). The reissue of Imagine
coincided with the broadcast premiere (and subsequent
commercial DVD release) of the documentary film,
Gimme Some Truth - The Making Of John Lennon's
Imagine Album.

As has been noted down the years,
John Lennon/Plastic Ono Band opened with the sound
of a tolling bell in 1970. Ten years later, in a deliberate
echo, Double Fantasy opened with another bell - not a
lumbering harbinger of doom, however, but the
benevolent tinkling of a traditional Japanese wishing bell.
The track it introduced, "(Just Like) Starting Over," was a
message of hope and renewal, a message not lost on
John Lennon fans around the world. In the decades
since his death, John's music has reached out to new
generations of artists and fans. He has inspired
countless musicians who have used his work as a
springboard for their own creativity and, in the process,
taken his message to new audiences.

Great news! I've wanted this album for a long time. Has anyone heard if Best Buy is offering a promotional giveaway with this album, as they have with other Beatles/solo Beatles releases?

Thanks for posting this, Stefanie!

Hope it comes to Chile. Plastic Ono Band never did.

Of course, Double Fantasy with Yoko screaming did...

I bought my copy of the remastered "Milk and Honey" at Best Buy and there was no promotion or free giveaway as they've done in the past with Beatle items. When my friend and I went to Best Buy yesterday, we first looked at the New Releases just thinking *maybe* it may be there, you never know. It would've been neat to see John in the "Best Seller" section or "New Release" section of any music store. But anyway, I haven't gotten around to listening to it yet. Been too busy with school work and preparing for graduation. I picked up my cap and gown yesterday! Only 8 weeks of school left in my entire life...It'll be strange waking up in January and *not* going to school, as I, and many others have been since the age of 4 or 5...
All You Need Is Love,

My boyfriend picked up a copy of Milk and Honey for me yesterday at Best Buy (since he lives in the Chicago area, he has one every few blocks it seems, while I have to drive an hour to get to one). Obviously, now I have to visit him as soon as possible. It's too bad Best Buy didn't have a promotion for it; maybe they're waiting for Paul's Driving Rain.

Anyway, Kristi, let me extend to you an early congrats on your upcoming graduation. Trust me, you won't miss school, unless, of course, you compare it to a job....

Thank you, Sandra. There are some things I definitely will miss about school--such as homework, being forced to read books you really don't want to read etc. Can't really compare school to a job yet, but I'll probably be able to do that soon! I'm looking for jobs too. You're from Wisconsin, right? I would like to work for the American Girls Collection (Pleasant Company) which is located in Middletown, WI--a suburb of Milwaukee). Who knows? I could be moving to Wisconsin a few months. We'll see what happens in the job world! Sorry for the off-topic post.
I still haven't listened to Milk and Honey, yet.
All You Need Is Love,
Kristi
