A sealed UK copy of Live Peace in Toronto 1969 by John Lennon and the Plastic Ono Band.
Offered for sale is a sealed UK copy of the 1969 live LP by John Lennon and the Plastic Ono Band, Live Peace in Toronto. UK pressings of Apple LPs are usually much harder to find than their U.S. counterparts.
In 1969, John Lennon and friends (including Klaus Voorman, Eric Clapton, and Yoko Ono) put in a hastily-arranged live appearance at the Toronto Rock and Roll Festival. With little rehearsal, the band went through a few rock and roll classics, a Beatles tune or two, and a couple of John/Yoko numbers, with side two dominated by Yoko’s “avant garde” performance amidst guitar feedback.
The album went out of print in the early 1970s and had actually become quite rare by the end of the decade. We remember a time when you couldn’t find a copy of Live Peace in Toronto at any price, aside from copies from the UK or Germany found in the “import” section of better record stores. That changed when a number of sealed copies turned up in a warehouse in the early 1980s, making the record not quite the rarity it had once been. Live Peace in Toronto has been reissued several times since, including an issue by Mobile Fidelity, but as far as we know, it’s currently out of print on vinyl.
The copy of Live Peace in Toronto offered for sale is a sealed UK issue, catalog number CORE 2001. The John & Yoko calendar is not included.
The record is still sealed and is presumably new and unplayed. There are small bends in two of the corners. Aside from this, it’s a beautiful example of a somewhat scarce John Lennon LP.
