Since there were two performances of this show, I think it's time to give this the deluxe treatment. They should give us the afternoon show on CD 1, the evening show on CD 2, and a 3rd CD of rehearsals.
As previously mentioned in other reviews, this is Lennon and a full backing band recorded live in NYC during a rare concert performance in Aug of 1972.
The track listing is nice, with selections from his first two solo albums including the classic "Imagine," "Mother" and also early singles like "Instant Karma!" and "Cold Turkey" plus a lone Beatles song, "Come Together".
The problem is that the overall sound is muddled. Yes, this is 1972 and I wonder if anyone had any intention that this would be a live album when it was originally recorded (probably not), so who knows what it was recorded with, but the overall sound suffers. Perhaps a remixing with today's technology could improve it. Additionally, there are two drummers in the backing band and at times they don't sound like they are fully in synch. Either that or they have entirely too much delay and other effects on their drums. Either way, the end result is that the drums sound far from tight and at times are obtrusive. So this just isn't a very good SOUNDING performance.Read more ›
