From one of my Sourced
The late Beatle's most revolutionary songs have been compiled into the soundtrack for the controversial documentary, The U.S. vs. John Lennon.
John Lennon's revolutionary songs like "Imagine," "Nobody Told Me," "Instant Karma (We All Shine On)," "Happy Xmas (War is Over)," and "Power to the People," have been compiled into the soundtrack to the upcoming feature-length documentary, The U.S. vs. John Lennon. Two previously unreleased tracks -- "Attica State," recorded live at 1971's John Sinclair freedom rally, and the film's instrumental version of "How Do You Sleep" -- will also be included on the soundtrack, which will be released on Sept. 26, just a few days before the film opens in wide release. "John sings: 'Nobody told me there'd be days like these.' That was his true confession," Yoko Ono said in a statement. "These songs have become relevant all over again. It's almost as if John wrote these songs for what we are going through now."
The U.S. vs. John Lennon focuses on Lennon's personal evolution from pop music icon to revolutionary and anti-war activist, and explores how the government assigned the FBI to monitor Lennon's activities. "Never in a million years, did we think that promoting world peace could be dangerous," Ono said. "Were we naive? Yes, on that account, we were."
