John Lennon – Peace In Toronto 1969
Hand signed in ball point pen by John Lennon
Live Peace in Toronto 1969 is a live album by the Plastic Ono Band, released on Apple in the United Kingdom and the United States, in December 1969. Recorded at the Toronto Rock and Roll Revival festival, it was the first live album released by any member of the Beatles separately or together. John Lennon and his wife Yoko Ono received a phone call from the festival’s promoters John Brower and Kenny Walker, and then quickly assembled a band in a very short space of time to play at the festival, which was due to start the following day. The group had brief rehearsals before appearing on the stage to perform several songs; one of which, “Cold Turkey”, was first performed live at said festival. Eventually returning home, Lennon mixed the album in a day.
The album peaked at number 10 on the Billboard 200 and has been certified a gold album by the RIAA, and failed to chart in the UK. The original LP came with a thirteen-month 1970 calendar. A video of several performances, not just the Plastic Ono Band’s set, was released on video. Since its first release, the album has been reissued a number of times.
