Biography

If John Lennon had only been one of the four members of the Beatles, his artistic immortality would already have been assured. The so-called "smart Beatle," he brought a penetrating intelligence and a stinging wit both to the band's music and its self-presentation. But in such songs as "Strawberry Fields Forever," "Norwegian Wood (This Bird Has Flown)," ... Read more in Amazon's John Lennon Store

3.0 out of 5 stars historical recording better viewed than heard 16 Sep 2005
Format:Audio CD
'Live Peace in Toronto' features the famous august 1969 show given by Lennon and an ad hoc Plastic Ono Band including Eric Clapton, Klaus Voorman and Alan White, notable as being the first solo performance by one of the Beatles before their break up. This is also the only one of the four early Lennon albums you're likely to play more than once. Given they hadn't rehearsed much the band play well, especially on the oldies ('Blue suede shoes', 'Money', 'Dizzy Miss Lizzy'), which are enjoyable. The then-new Lennon numbers ('Cold turkey' and 'Give peace a chance') sound half-finished, however, and don't add much to the single versions you may know - hearing GPAC on this concert makes you realise it's only a fragment of a song really. The Yoko numbers, originally conveniently tucked away on the B-side of the album, aren't really songs but noise manifestations. The extensive CD booklet is a 1995 calendar with nice photos and John and Yoko quotes. Altogether, this is only a half-enjoyable album with mainly historical value. But, since it starts out agreeably, this album is ideal for subtly letting your guests know it's time to go home: by the time they have sat through a couple of minutes of the first Yoko track, they'll probably reach for their coat. If you're truly interested in what this show was like, the Lennon DVD 'Sweet Toronto' is a much better bargain: it's much cheaper than this album, includes footage of the whole POB show PLUS some good rock 'n' roll tracks by Bo Diddley, Chuck Berry, Jerry Lee Lewis, and Little Richard, and a small Yoko documentary.

3.0 out of 5 stars Half Brilliant 20 Nov 2005
Format:Audio CD
Let’s be honest. Side One (Lennon) is superb. Side 2 (Yoko) is at best of historical interest. Yoko has done far better than this. This is Yoko at her most violently avant garde and it grates on the ears. She would find her mark with later albums, in particular on ’Approximately Infinite Universe’ (1972) and ’Feeling The Space’ (1973) and of course later on the wonderful ’Double Fantasy’ sessions. But here she is just annoying I am afraid.
But so to Side One. Here we hear Lennon in front of a live audience for the first time since the Beatles’ last tour of 1966. He is altogether a different animal. He sings a riveting version of Carl Perkins’ ’Blue Suede Shoes’, a really heavy and magnificent version of ’Money’ so that it is a different song altogether. There follows loud and slightly ragged versions of ’Dizzy Miss Lizzy’, ’Cold Turkey’ and the White album track ’Yer Blues’. They had after all only rehearsed for this concert on the plane on the way over to Toronto. There is also a spirited version of ’Give Peace A Chance’. So most of all this is historical document. Lennon…in concert….without the Beatles. Quite an event in itself.
But it is this Side One from Lennon which makes this album memorable. And even then we have to put up with intrusive yelps and screams for Yoko on these Lennon numbers. Which are completely misjudged. Don’t get me wrong. I am a big Yoko fan both of her music and her spirit. But here she is just intruding. And is seemingly completely unoblivious to the fact.
So this album is somewhat frustrating. To either buy or to listen to.

4.0 out of 5 stars Lennon, Ono, Clapton, Voormann, White 19 Mar 2009
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
Recorded in September 1969 at the Toronto Rock and Roll Revival concert, this really is a truly remarkable live album. The original vinyl had Lennon /Plastic Ono Band on side one and Yoko /POB on side 2. Yoko's material at this point in her career is an acquired taste and not my cup of tea at all. Focusing on Lennon, tracks 1 -6 are the best example we have of him in concert (easily surpassing the 1972 New York concert). Apart from performing Yer Blues with Clapton at the Stones Rock and Roll Circus in December 1968, the band had literally never played together, apart from a quick rehearsal on the flight over. The fact that this totally unrehearsed band powered its way, without a hitch, through fantastic versions of Blues Suede Shoes, Money, Dizzy Miss Lizzie and Yer Blues, is a miracle. Is there another live album so potent from a band who had never played together before?

As always Lennon's vocals are sublime. The incendiary version of Money, especially, outstrips the 'With the Beatles' version. Listening to the concert will dispel the myth that he wasn't much of a guitarist. He may not have been the greatest technician, but for pure primal feeling, which is really what its all about, he got the job done brilliantly. Listen to Yer Blues as a prime example. Eric Clapton is a master as always, as is Klaus Voormann (the Revolver cover artist, close friend and excellent bass player who also went on to play on the Plastic Ono Band, Imagine and Walls and Bridges albums).

Im not sure why none of these tracks were included on the greatest hits compilations such as 'Legend' and 'Working Class Hero:the definitive Lennon'.
