Comments
The first release of a John Lennon interview on record, it features a 42 minute extract taken from the 30 hours of taping for a "Playboy" interview from September 1980. At the end of the "Double Fantasy" sessions John decides to do the mother of all interviews for David Sheff of Playboy magazine. John says, "This will be the reference book". The sessions started on September 10th at the Dakota, and concluded 28th September in La Fortuna coffee chop, which is where the cover photograph was taken. The first printed extract of these interviews appears in the "Playboy" which reaches the bookshops on 6th December 1980.

The interviews appear on the album in seven "sections", and included as an insert with the L.P. is a signed "letter" from Yoko describing each of the seven sections. (The text for each section is reproduced in the track notes below, and the letter concludes: "John is funny, quick and wise throughout the record. That's just John. He had so much to say, so much to share. He was genuinely concerned about the human race and believed that we would someday 'get there'. Thank you, John, for a beautiful life together. Love, Yoko".)

A portion of the profits from the "Heart Play" L.P. was donated to the Spirit Foundation, in 72nd Street, New York.

A revolutionary, funny and honest account of a rocker's experience as a house-husband and a father, and his sympathy for housewives through his experience. "Sean is my biggest pride", he says with a sweet lull in his voice I remember well, expressing man's tenderness.

Section Three
John is happy and proud that, at forty, songs still flow out of him with ease. It was especially true in 1980. He felt that the songs were given to him from above and said a quick thank you, thank you, thank you, whenever he was inspired with a song.

The Beatles, John and Yoko, and how "the world had it all wrong". His voice just barely hides his anger and pain of isolation and the struggle we went through for over ten years with the world, as a couple, artists, and as two people.

"The future is ours to see". He goes on to Gandhi and Martin Luther King. "What does it mean when you're such a pacifist that you get shot? I can never understand that". We hear "Woman" playing in the background and John's voice singing "I love you" as I'm trying to say, "It wasn't so bad, you know". This is not theatre, this is life - it happened while we were busy doing something else. Somebody up there must have thought that I could take all this, but nobody told me there'd be days like these.

This entry is a bit tricky to rate because, while the content of this LP is very interesting, the audio quality is very low-fi. This is due to the fact that these recordings were made for transcribing to print, not for broadcast.

So while I'd give the content of this LP a "10", I'd give the quality of the audio a "5" perhaps and even that may be a touch generous for some portions. The various locations where the conversations are recorded are evident throughout the recordings as there’s much inconsistency in background noises and audio quality.

The real value of this LP is in the content of the conversations and so this is a worthwhile audio document to seek out.

This is another item that has been in the BZ database for a while already. Recently I took it upon myself to transfer a sealed copy of this LP from my collection and try to improve this "Black-Bird" release. My transfer is not as harsh on the ears and has less vinyl noise but there's no getting around the quality of the source audio. It is what it is. My transfer is available through WASTE or the devilish site.

The artwork for this entry has also been upgraded with scans I made from the LP cover and label. Thanks go to Herbert for swapping in the new artwork.
