Transmission 2607

"Now Yoko is going to do her thing -- all over you." That's how John introduced Yoko to the Beatles hungry crowd at the September 19, 1969 Rock & Roll Revival in Toronto, Canada!

After the almost tuneful Don't Worry which we hear today, Yoko and the Plastic Ono Band including Eric Clapton went into avant-hard free-rock overdrive to the bewilderment of most in attendance! John latter described the scene by saying, "Yoko did a number, which was half rock and half madness, and it really freaked them out. We finished with Yoko's number, because you can't go anywhere after you've reached that sort of pitch. You can't go 'Ji-jing' like The Beatles and bow at the end of screaming and fifty watts of feedback. So, after Yoko had been on for about a quarter of an hour, we all left our amps on going like the clappers and had a smoke on the stage. Then, when they stopped, the whole crowd was chanting 'Give Peace A Chance'. It looks like this is going to be The Plastic Ono Band in the future."

Along with this classic dose from The Lennons, we also explore some Golem from their only 1973 release, new music from The Rapture, live Ultravox with John Foxx, Screaming Headless Torsos, John Scofield, Eno, David "The Whizz Kid" Werner, Mott The Hoople, Colosseum 2 with Gary Moore and The Flying Burrito Brothers in memory of the late "Sneaky" Pete Kleinow who passed on from Alzheimer's disease on January 6, 2007. Pete will be remembered every time I hear a pedal steel guitar!

T2607 is a 56MB 128k mp3 1:01:13 in length made loud to be played loud!

"Yoko did not break up the band, she started a few thousand new bands"
