John Lennon's first solo album, 'John Lennon/Plastic Ono Band' will be celebrating its 50th anniversary with the release of a book titled John & Yoko/Plastic Ono Band.

Lennon once described the album as "the best thing" he has ever done.

Scheduled to be released on 6th October, the book is available to pre-order now.

The book is said to feature "a definitive, in-depth, revelatory exploration of John Lennon's intensely personal first major solo album after the breakup of the Beatles."

It also promises first-hand commentary by Lennon, Ono, and other members of the band, and packed with previously unseen photographs by those who documented their lives, this incisive volume offers new insights into the raw emotions and open mindset of Lennon after marriage to Ono and the breakup of the Beatles, to the making of the album and revealing interview with Jann Wenner in December 1970.

A 50th anniversary edition of the album has yet to be announced.
