THREE PECULIAR SOLO ALBUMS BY BEATLES AFTER THE SPLIT
Not too challenging to find in the shot, but maybe more so in your local record store (depending on how extensive and complete their collection is).
See if you can name, for all three:
a) location of physical copy in @carynorton
b) the Beatle — and wife, if applicable
c) title of LP
1) Song titles include "Snookeroo" and " No No Song." Mostly jumpy, horn-heavy stuff with a few ballads. Large cast of musicians including Elton John and Billy Preston.
2) Almost as perfect as it is strange. Released as a collaboration with a wife (though she arguably contributed little else besides backing vocals, keyboards, and sparse songwriting input). Subtle jabs at another Beatle, like the lyric "You took your lucky break and broke it in two" and a photo on the back of the album picturing two beetles mating.
3) After a five year retirement, this one was intended to be a comeback of sorts. One copy was autographed for this Beatles' murderer, and would later sell for $525,000 to make it the most expensive record of all time.
Unfortunately, I don't have any solo work by the harriest mop top. Anyone have a suggestion on where to start?
