John Lennon and the Plastic Ono Band - Sweet Toronto
This 1969 concert brought John Lennon, Yoko Ono, and the Plastic Ono Band to Canada's Sweet Toronto Peace Festival--introducing Yoko to the heroes of her husband's childhood: Bo Diddley, Jerry Lee Lewis, Chuck Berry, and Little Richard. Captured on film by legendary rock documentarian D.A. Pennebaker (who had already directed the seminal Bob Dylan documentary, DON'T LOOK BACK), this is Lennon's only filmed performance with the Plastic Ono Band (which at this show consisted of Lennon, Ono, Eric Clapton on guitar, Klaus Voorman on bass, and Alan White on drums). Songs include "Blue Suede Shoes," "Yer Blues," "Cold Turkey," "Give Peace a Chance," and a rocking version of Barrett Strong's "Money," with Clapton and Lennon showing off their guitar chops.
