John Lennon/Plastic Ono Band is Lennon's first solo studio album. It was released in 1970 after Lennon had issued three experimental albums with Yoko Ono. The album was recorded simultaneously with Ono's debut avant garde solo album, Yoko Ono/Plastic Ono Band, at Ascot Sound Studios and Abbey Road Studios using the same musicians and production team, and featured nearly identical cover artwork. The minimalist approach with musicians featured Lennon, Ringo Starr, Klaus Voormann and Billy Preston.
It 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. In 1987, Rolling Stone magazine ranked it fourth on "The 100 Best Albums of the Last Twenty Years." In 2012, the magazine ranked it number 23 on its list of The 500 Greatest Albums of All Time.
