Classic Albums: John Lennon: Plastic Ono Band is a documentary that covers the making of John Lennon's first solo album after leaving The Beatles. The album was released alongside a sister album, Yoko Ono: Plastic Ono Band. At this point in their relationship, Lennon and Ono had begun a kind of therapy together known as primal scream therapy. This involved a kind of deep, animalistic shrieking. The therapy deeply influenced the making of this pair of albums. This film covers archival footage and never before seen interviews that unveil the psychological character at this stage of their lives and careers. The film includes interviews with the two, and also with Ringo Starr, bassist Klaus Voorman, and several critics and Beatles historians. There are also clips from Lennon's attendance at the Alexandra Palace psychedelic event in London in 1967. For Beatles fans, this is a unique look at the biography of Lennon.
