Yoko Ono: Season Of Glass (Geffen)

Richard Riegel, Creem, October 1981

YOKO ONO'S first post-John album has been out a month or so as I write this, but you'd never know that from tuning into your local radio outlet. No, ever since Double Fantasy appeared, the stations hereabouts have marched systematically through that album, cut-by-every-other-cut, and have pulled off one John Lennon song after another for successive airplay, as they've just as carefully avoided each of the Yoko Ono cuts, allowing them to sink further into that discographied wasteland reserved for "Beatles-related" novelty sides.
