Ep031: John Lennon, 'Come Together' & the Roots & Rock and Roll Albums

John Lennon inadvertently plagiarized a Chuck Berry song that was owned by a mobster and hatched a plan with Phil Spector to correct it. What could go wrong? As it turns out, quite a lot! This is the story of a John Lennon record that sold less than 1500 units and was a huge embarrassment to Lennon, Capitol Records and the Beatles.

We also speak with Port Of Sound Record Shoppe in Costa Mesa California and discuss other thingamajigs related to vinyl records.
