Win 'The U.S. vs. John Lennon' on CD ... TODAY!
On behalf of Capitol/EMI, Exclusive Magazine is pleased to announce the release of 'The US vs. John Lennon: Motion Picture Soundtrack' in stores September 26, 2006. The 21 track album features two previously unreleased songs and includes liner notes penned by Yoko Ono Lennon.
Capitol/EMI Music Catalog Marketing will release the original soundtrack album to the highly-anticipated feature length documentary film, The U.S. vs. John Lennon. The soundtrack, available on CD and digitally on September 26, collects John Lennon’s most evocative songs, including “Imagine,” “Nobody Told Me,” “Instant Karma (We All Shine On),” “Happy Xmas (War Is Over),” and “Power To The People,” as well as two previously unreleased tracks, "Attica State,” recorded live at 1971’s “John Sinclair Freedom Rally” benefit concert in Ann Arbor, Michigan and the film’s instrumental version of "How Do You Sleep.”
The CD and digital album packaging will include a liner notes essay written exclusively for this release by Yoko Ono Lennon. The controversial film, distributed by Lionsgate Films (Crash, Fahrenheit 9/11), will open in New York and Los Angeles theaters on September 15, followed by wide release at the end of September.
The U.S. vs. John Lennon follows Lennon’s artistic and personal evolution between 1966 and 1976 as he broadened his personal and artistic scope, launching from his Beatles-rooted music legend pedestal into powerful, globally-resonating antiwar and social justice activism. As the Vietnam war exploded and America’s youth was increasingly under attack at home for expressing its discontent, Lennon’s counter-cultural activities were increasingly monitored by the FBI on behalf of President Richard Nixon’s administration (Nixon himself was briefed on Lennon’s activities). The film, through its captivating exploration of the government’s ongoing efforts to silence John Lennon, also clearly illustrates certain parallels to today’s political landscape, through insightful interviews with those who knew him best.
If you would like to win a copy of this new CD, and you think you know all there is to know about the man, just answer this easy question: Lennon attended Dovedale County Primary School until he passed his Eleven-Plus and from September 1952 to 1957, Lennon attended which Grammar school in Liverpool?!
