John Lennon covers rock 'n' roll music!

Rock 'n' Roll is the sixth studio album by John Lennon. Released in 1975, it is an album of late 1950s and early 1960s songs as covered by Lennon. Recording the album spanned an entire year: Phil Spector produced sessions in October 1973 at A&M Studios, and Lennon produced sessions in October 1974 at Record Plant Studios (East).

The album was released in February 1975, reaching No. 6 in both the United Kingdom and the United States, later being certified gold in both countries. It was supported by the single "Stand by Me," which peaked at No. 20 in the U.S., and 30 in the U.K.. The cover image was taken by Jürgen Vollmer during the Beatles' stay in Hamburg. It was Lennon's last album until 1980: he took a hiatus from recording to raise his son Sean.

"...Rock 'n' Roll, in fact, stands as a peak in [Lennon's] post-Imagine catalog: an album that catches him with nothing to prove...Today, Rock 'n' Roll sounds fresher than the rock 'n' roll that inspired it in the first place. Imagine that." — Dave Thompson, AllMusic
