Rock 'n' Roll is the sixth studio album by John Lennon. Released in 1975, it is an album of late 1950s and early 1960s songs as covered by Lennon. Recording the album was problematic and spanned an entire year: Phil Spector produced sessions in October 1973 at A&M Studios, and Lennon produced sessions in October 1974 at Record Plant Studios (East).
Presented on this album are Lennon's rough mixes of what became his "Rock & Roll" album. Production of this LP was halted and about 3000 copies survive. There are the steps to see if your version is the original: 1) If any copy has the word GREATEST (instead of GREAT) printed on the spine-it's a fake. I'm sure 'Come Together' was written and the lines were used as a tribute to Chuck Berry (from his song 'You Can't Catch Me'). I don't think John was trying to get away with anything. At any rate, he didn't, as one Morris Levy, who owned the publishing rights to the song, took Lennon to court for his supposed plagiarism.
Listen to John Lennon Perform 'Stand By Me'. That album was released first, in October 1974, and climbed to No. 1, Lennon's second showing there as a solo artist. Imagine topped the charts in 1971. With Levy still on his tail about making good on the borrowed Berry line and the Spector tapes recovered by someone from Lennon's record company, Lennon immediately started work again on Rock 'N' Roll – this time in New York, with his Walls and Bridges band and producing himself. In retrospect, Rock 'N' Roll represents Lennon's last blast with the music that shaped him. It's also a final chance to hear one of rock's greatest figures coming to terms with his Beatles past on an album his old band probably would have made had they stuck around a while longer. It's far from perfect, but rock 'n' roll, and Lennon for that matter, rarely is. Beatles Solo Albums Ranked.

Although the chaotic sessions that spawned this album have passed into rock & roll legend and the recording's very genesis (as an out-of-court settlement between John Lennon and an aggrieved publisher) has often caused it to be slighted by many of the singer's biographers, Rock 'n' Roll, in fact, stands as a peak in his post-Imagine catalog: an album
