`John, You've Gone Too Far' Lennon Album Nudity, Not Art By RICHARD ROBINSON NEW YORK

John Lennon and his love, Yoko Ono, may have created a money-making sensation with their "Two Virgins" nude album cover, but from one 18-year-old Beatles fan the word is "John, You've Gone Too Far This Time." Her name is Rainbo, and her comment about John is the title of her first record. "It's not art. It's just a dirty picture," said Rainbo, brushing her blond hair back to let her green eyes sparkle. Apparently, many Beatles fans agree since the record is creating a sensation in many parts of the country. "The record isn't really putting him down," explained Rainbo. "I still love him, but he still went too far this time."

Originally from Texas. Rainbo came to New York City several months ago to visit her cousin Rip Torn and his wife Geraldine Page. During her visit she met a record producer who asked her to record the song about John. After hearing the tune, she agreed. Although she's upset with Lennon's photo, Rainbo doesn't nix all nudity. "Somebody could come along and use nudity and there is probably a way to do it if you use it right. But for the fans John has, the teenage girls, it was very tasteless.
