The sessions that produced John Lennon’s Rock ‘N’ Roll album are legendary in the chronicles of rock history. Faced with a potential lawsuit for plagiarizing lyrics from Chuck Berry’s You Can’t Catch Me in the Beatles’ Come Together (”here comes flat top”), Lennon agreed to record three songs from the catalog owned by music publisher Morris Levy, including You Can’t Catch Me. Lennon reunited with iconoclastic producer Phil Spector, who had previously produced Lennon’s first two solo albums, Plastic Ono Band and Imagine. Despite the discipline that produced these masterpieces, chaos quickly erupted in the studio with Spector in charge this time. Drinking, partying, and occasionally gunfire characterized the RNR sessions. After a couple of months, two different studios, and dozens of session musicians, only nine songs were recorded and the sessions ended. Lennon eventually took four of those recordings, recorded nine more without Spector, remixed the album, and released it in 1975. -Original
