A new project from Sean Lennon and Primus singer/bassist Les Claypool has announced its debut album. Operating as the Claypool Lennon Delirium, the pair will release Monolith of Phobos on June 3, with a tour kicking off the following week. (The live band features Beastie Boys' Mark Ramos Nishita and Paul Baldi of the Fungi Band.) Below, listen to the album's first track, "Mr. Wright," and check out the album art and tour dates.
Rock 'n' Roll is the sixth studio album by John Lennon. The album was released in February 1975, reaching number 6 in both the United Kingdom and the United States, later being certified gold in both countries.

John Lennon's concert appearances during his solo years were rare and scattered about, so any live document is worth hearing. Yet this one, the fabled One to One concert at Madison Square Garden, doesn't live up to its legend, however noble the cause (a benefit for the Willowbrook School for Children). Much of the problem, one suspects, is that Lennon concerts tended to be quick, casual one-offs; this material might have really rocked if John had broken the tunes in on the road first.

Here is nice little Filter Magazine promotional only compilation disc that was issued right at the start of Winter 2005. I just don't know if it was included with a Filter magazine that came out at that time or not. Maybe, it was just sent to music media people, distributors and such.
