John Lennon - Live in NYC
Recorded August 30, 1972 - 1st gen VHS from laserdisc - 60 minutes
Note: On August 30, 1972, John Lennon performed his only full-length, rehearsed solo concert as a benefit for a New York charity. This program, as compiled and produced posthumously by Yoko Ono, is of the day's matinee performance (the evening performance, heavily bootlegged, is actually a bit better). It's ragged, it's sloppy, it's a little crazy. But it's a great look at John Lennon and his engaging style of live performance - as well as hearing his athletic voice roar in concert. He would only appear in concert live once more, two years later, as a walk-on.
