C&L's Late Night Music Club With Yoko Ono

Yoko is 83 years old today.

She's polarizing. She's been subjected to slanted public opinion for more than two-thirds of her life. And she's doing interesting things (her last album, 2013's Take Me to the Land of Hell sounded more "alternative" and forward thinking than anything radio stations station who claim to play "the best 'new rock'" were spinning.)

Let's go back to 1973 album Approximately Infinite Universe. Produced by John Lennon, this is probably one of the most "normal" sounding albums in Yoko's canon. During the session Mick Jagger showed up at the studio to contribute. When later asked what it was like working with her Mick said Yoko "was really trying to sing properly. She's not screaming, she's really trying to sing."
