Album title[edit]

This album is officially called John Lennon/Plastic Ono Band, although it is often - and lazily - referred to as Plastic Ono Band. The same goes for Yoko Ono's simultaneously-released album. I have reverted all changes from Plastic Ono Band back to their REAL titles. Please discuss in the future before making changes, especially wrong ones.

Finger-picking[edit]

Lennon and McCartney reputedly learned this from Donovan in Rishikesh, hence its prevalence on White.

Please go to the image description page and edit it to include a fair use rationale. Using one of the templates at Wikipedia:Fair use rationale guideline is an easy way to insure that your image is in compliance with Wikipedia policy, but remember that you must complete the template.

Klaus Voormann Rolling Stone citation[edit]

I'm removing the line concerning Klaus claiming most of the songs were recorded in one or two takes. If someone can find the original quotation and source it, feel free to put it back in. In any case, the session tapes seem to prove that the opposite was the case (e.g. a simple song like "Hold On" had over 30 takes). Tripscafe (talk) 20:05, 23 August 2008 (UTC)

On the song's genre labeling.[edit]

"Working Class Hero" is a folk song -research on folk chord progressions, and then refer to the timbre of the song-, and the "Rock" label is much too generalist for a tag in which greater specification could be used. This song has been acknowledged as a nod to Bob Dylan's Masters Of War, written in a style that follows his same tradition. (See the article, it doesn't declare a source, however, but I have read similar statements from reliable sources -which, should someone find and cite them, would be greatly appreciated-.) John takes his guitar, adds no electric instrumentation, and plays a simple folk chord progression with a traditional playing style, and moreover, he does so in a style reminiscent of Bob Dylan's early traditional songs: this makes it arguably a folk piece. Stop adding "Rock" merely because that is the overall genre of the song's album. Had it been released as a single, you'd be studying it as a piece on its own, not utilizing purely contextual labels.

Just so we understand each other, I am not a "revisionist" and I didn't revert your edit because rock is the overall genre of the song's album. I reverted it because you removed the genre without a source or a discussion. I would encourage you to read WP:V. As much as you my think it is a well established fact, you still need a source. I am glad to see that you have now provided a source. Now you should work on signing your posts. --John of Lancaster (talk) 18:25, 1 January 2011 (UTC)

Lazy copy and pasting[edit]

Hi. Twice in this article appears the very same sentence: "John Lennon/Plastic Ono Band is generally considered one of Lennon's finest solo albums, documenting with honesty and artistic integrity his emotional and mental state at that point in his career." All well and heavy, but don't you think someone could come up with something slightly different to say in the opener besides simply copying/pasting a ripped off summation not once, but twice? Well well well. Thanks!114.158.149.78 (talk) 10:34, 29 June 2013 (UTC)

Guidance To Turn C Class to B Class[edit]

Hello John Lennon/Plastic Ono Band talk page,

I'm wondering if you could help point me in the right direction. I'm working in a college course to edit Wikipedia pages and fill content gaps. I was asked to choose a topic I feel passionate about and decided I wanted to help improve the page on one of my favorite albums of all time, John Lennon/Plastic Ono Band. I see that the article is listed as C class, but as a new and inexperienced Wikipedia user, I'm not sure what is needed to bump that C to a B. I see the B Class criteria list, but I am still uncertain as to where it actually needs to be implemented within the page. Any guidance would be greatly appreciated!
