    Beatles - John Lennon "Listen to This Envelope" Walls and Bridges Press Kit (Apple SW-3416, 1974). Recorded and released during Lennon's "lost weekend" separation from Yoko Ono, it was also one of his most successful solo recordings. The lively Elton John duet "Whatever Gets You Through The Night," was the only number one solo single that John would see in his lifetime. The album was very strong musically and it too went to number one, his second full-length chart-topper after the Imagine LP. John's companion and close confidante through this period, May Pang, played an important role in the making of Walls And Bridges and is credited as Production Coordinator in the liner notes (and it is Pang who is heard whispering "John" on the second single from the LP, "#9 Dream"). The press kit includes the album itself with a sleeve featuring John's artwork on the front with two fold-out panels revealing a color photo of Lennon with his tongue sticking out and pictorial inner sleeve, and illustrated lyrics insert. The album is housed in a black paper portfolio lettered in white "Listen to This Envelope". Condition: NM 8/EX 7.
