John Lennon - Rock 'n' Roll"Rock 'n' Roll" was Lennon's 1976 album of covers of 1950s and 1960s rock songs, produced by Phil Spector.
Lennon did it in response to similar efforts by Bryan Ferry and David Bowie. The making of the album was torn by Lennon's personal disintegration and drug use living in Los Angeles, California separated from his wife Yoko Ono and his volatile, unstable partnership with Spector. Its release was also marred by legal complications resulting from Roulette Records head and alleged mafioso Morris Levy suing Lennon. The album was not a success, although after Lennon's death "Stand By Me" got radio play.
