THE ALBUM OF THE DAY
JOHN LENNON/YOKO ONO...Milk And Honey (1984)
Milk And Honey was released 30 years ago today in 1984. It reached number 11 on the U.S. Billboard album charts. This review is easy to do. The John Lennon songs are fantastic. The Yoko Ono songs are crap! Enough said. Half of the album is recommended
