Live Peace In Toronto

The follow up album of Two Virgins was John and Yoko's Live Peace in toronto released on December 12, 1969. The album was well received in the U.S. peaking at #10 but like Two Virgins, also failed to enter the British chart.

Two Virgins LP

The first album released by a solo Beatle on Nov 29, 1968 was John and Yoko's Two Virgins . I have a copy of this album but it is, in my opinion, not worth spending much time on. The recording consists largely of tape loops playing while Lennon tries out different instruments. I think the only reason it sold as many copies as it did was because the album cover featured the two of them nude on the cover. The album failed to enter the British chart and peaked at #124 in the U.S.

A follow up to Give Peace A Chance, the Plastic Ono Band released Cold Turkey on October 24, 1969 which was the first song John Lennon wrote for which took sole credit. John was accompanied by Eric Clapton on lead guitar and Ringo Starr on drums. The song reached #30 on the U.S. charts and # 14 in the U.K.

Give Peace A Chance

A year before The Beatles broke up, John Lennon released a single under the name The Plastic Ono Band in July 1969 called Give Peace A Chance. The song was originally credited as a Lennon/McCartney composition but when it was released on an album a few years later, it was then credited to Lennon himself. The song peaked at #14 in the U.S. and #2 in the U.K.
