    Description

    John Lennon "Roots" (Adam VIII 8018, 1975). From his late night TV viewing, John had seen Adam VIII ads for various "Greatest Hits" compilations and was enamored of the concept. The result was this record of mostly 1950s Rock classics. His regular label (Apple) didn't agree that this was a good thing -- at least for Apple -- and successfully had not only the distribution of the album stopped, but also had unsold copies destroyed. That makes this copy a 'survivor', one of a relatively few. The album has been widely counterfeited, but this one's the real deal, with "John Lennon Sings The Great Rock & Roll Hits" on the spine. Condition: NM 8/ NM 8.
