Back in 1971
McCartney said this ""John's whole image now is very honest and open. He's alright, is John. I like his 'Imagine' album but I didn't like the others. 'Imagine' is what John is really like but there was too much political stuff on the other albums. You know, I only really listen to them to see if there's something I can pinch." (laughs)
So I guess he likes Imagine but he doesn't like Plastic Ono Band back then although we don't know if his opinion change on that album. I'm guessing if that was too political then we can automatically assume that sometimes in new york would fall in that basket as well.
John wasn't too impress by that comment and responded "So you think 'Imagine' ain't political? It's 'Working Class Hero' with sugar on it for conservatives like yourself!! You obviously didn't dig the words. Your politics are very similar to Mary Whitehouse's -- 'Saying nothing is as loud as saying something.'"
Also judging by his cover of "Give Peace A Chance" in another McCartney live album, he probably digs that song as well (although technically it is credited as a lennon/mccartney song rather then a pure lennon song even if in reality it is a solo song).
