LIVE PEACE IN TORONTO by The Plastic Ono Band.

NY: Apple Records, December 1969. LP record (SW 3362). Unopened, factory shrinkwrapped copy, with labels to back cover and wire spiral-bound 'John and Yoko 1970 Calendar' still sealed inside (some calendars had a plastic comb-binding).

A recording of The Plastic Ono Band's live debut at the Toronto Rock and Roll Revival festival, September 13, 1969, and the first live album released by any member of the Beatles separately or together. Other than his earlier performances wth Yoko, it was also the first time Lennon had played a concert without the other Beatles since 1957. On side 2 he introduces Yoko's set by announcing "Now Yoko's gonna do her thing - all over ya!". Her song, 'Don't Worry Kyoko (Mummy's only looking for her hand in the snow)', premiered at the show, as did Lennon's 'Cold Turkey'.

The sleeve's artwork was designed by John and Yoko, and its back cover prints Derek Taylor's enigmatic line: "Being Born in Scotland carries with it certain responsibilities."

As new.
