As you can see on the cover, the album is actually titled Menlove Ave. using the shortform of Avenue.

The A-side are all tracks recorded at the relevant sessions but NOT released.
The cover was an Andy Warhol original illustration, made from a photo of John.
Menlove Avenue - As a child John was brought up by Aunt Mimi and Uncle George in their home on Menlove Avenue in
Liverpool. In 1956 was John was 16, Elvis Presley happened as a world phenomenon. It changed John's life. John's American
rock roots, Elvis, Fats Domino and Phil Spector are evident in these tracks. But what I hear in John's voice are the other
roots of the boy who grew up in Liverpool, listening to Greensleeves, BBC Radio and Tessie O'Shea.
