'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.
