John Lennon "Well we all shine on..."

#OnThisDay, 06 February 1970, John released Instant Karma! in the UK.

-------

John had always wanted "to write a song on Monday, cut it Tuesday, have it pressed Wednesday and in the shops by Friday." With 'Instant Karma!', he did almost exactly that. On January 27th, 1970, John "wrote it for breakfast, recorded it for lunch, and were putting it out for dinner".

"It just came to me. Everybody was going on about karma, especially in the Sixties. But it occurred to me that karma is instant as well as it influences your past life or your future life. There really is a reaction to what you do now. That's what people ought to be concerned about. Also, I'm fascinated by commercials and promotion as an art form. I enjoy them. So the idea of instant karma was like the idea of instant coffee: presenting something in a new form. I just liked it."

John's hastily assembled band was:
George Harrison: acoustic guitar, piano
Klaus Voormann: bass guitar, electric piano
Billy Preston: organ
Alan White: piano, drums
Mal Evans: backing vocals, chimes, handclaps
Yoko Ono, Allen Klein and patrons of a local nightclub: backing vocals

"All we're trying to say to the world is, You're gonna be great!"

John Lennon Excerpt from Beatles Gear: All the Fab Four's Instruments from Stage to Studio - the Ultimate Edition. by Andy Babuik
Available at Amazon: http://geni.us/BeatlesGear

"Billy Kinsley, bassist for The Merseybeats, recalls hanging out in Hessy's one rainy afternoon with the group's guitarist, Tony Crane, when Jolin Lennon walked into the shop. "He had the Bigsby on his Rickenbacker, but he kept losing the spring from it. In Liverpool at the time you couldn't get spare parts, like in America. So Jim Gretty would nick one from another Bigsby. Jim was a friend of John's, and he'd tell him to nick a spring off another guitar." 
Kinsley also recalls that on the same day he told Lennon he'd ordered a Gibson bass from the States, an EB-0 model. "John said that he and George really wanted Paul to get a different bass. They didn't like the violin bass, and they wanted him to get an EB-0."
