Background

The album itself comprises session outtakes from the Rock 'n' Roll sessions with Phil Spector in late 1973, which comprises the first half of Menlove Ave. (save for "Rock and Roll People" which was cut in August 1973). The remainder features rehearsal recordings in mid-1974 for Walls and Bridges.

The title refers to Lennon's childhood home, 251 Menlove Avenue, in Liverpool. Menlove Avenue is a long road in South Liverpool, part of the Liverpool ring road. While it is mainly residential, it is also a primary route - the A562.
