Album Remarks & Appraisals:
As a boy, all John Lennon needed was love. Nowhere Boy tells the never seen before story of John Lennons childhood - a spirited teenager, curious, sharp and funny, growing up in the shattered city of Liverpool. Two extraordinary sisters tussle for his love - Mimi, the formidable aunt who raised him from the age of 5 and Julia, the spirited mother who gave him up to Mimis care. Yearning for a normal family, John escapes into art and the new music flooding in from the U.S. His fledgling genius finds a kindred spirit a young Paul McCartney. But just as Johns new life begins, the truth about his past leads to a tragedy he would never escape. This timepiece soundtrack features legendary tracks from key artists like Elvis Presley, Jerry Lee Lewis, Screamin' Jay Hawkins, as well as original music from the motion picture by The Nowhere Boys. Sony. 2010.
