Edit Cast Credited cast: Chuck Berry Himself Eric Clapton Himself guitar Bo Diddley Himself John Lennon Himself Jerry Lee Lewis Himself Little Richard Himself Yoko Ono Then, three songs that had been recorded by the Beatles: a pretty tough little version of "Money," a short but impressive "Dizzy Miss Lizzie" and, from the "White Album," "Yer Blues," highlighted by some surprisingly great guitar work from John himself.
The soon-to-be-released single "Cold Turkey" is up next, during which Yoko caterwauls like a constipated banshee, and a nicely strummed "Give Peace a Chance" follows. The final two songs of the set are the ones that have proved the most Nickel Plate Road No.
759 - Utah Phillips - Good Though! over the years for most listeners. Arthur Janov would have approved of while Clapton and Lennon coax some bizarre feedback from their instruments. Equal parts hilarious, excruciating and awesome, this longest number of the set--equivalent, I suppose, to the Money - John Lennon And The Plastic Ono Band - Sweet Toronto (DVD) Dead's later "Space" segments--brings the festival to a literally screeching halt.
I half expected the lights to come up at that point to reveal a completely cleared-out stadium that WOULD have been pretty funny, right? In all, a too-short but nevertheless essential glimpse at this pivotal moment in Lennon's career.
My advice: Equip yourself with some earplugs and enjoy! Lejink 20 August The story goes that Lennon only agreed to top the bill to help ailing ticket sales for a show containing some of his favourite rock and roll acts from his youth and so put together a pick-up band admittedly a crack one! Lennon's set is enjoyable, certainly ragged most of the time, but the band hits its stride on "Yer Blues", while the premiere of his superb drug-song "Cold Turkey" on the other hand fails to really take off and significantly doesn't inspire Lennon into the harrowing screams of pain and release on the recorded version.
I'm no fan of Mrs Lennon's supposed music however and wish I could have had at least one more song from each of the great early rockers in her stead. That said, the fact that this represents almost certainly the only time Eric Clapton went avant-garde does give it some curiosity value. Of the early rockers, Bo Diddley impresses most with his flashing feet and Tina Turner influenced dance routine with a female backing singer, although Chuck, Jerry and Richard all acquit themselves admirably they could barely have been in their forties any of them and yet they still come across as veterans.
As a viewing experience this is obviously for Lennon die-hards only that means me! Doctor Who: Season The Flash: Season 6. Into The Dark: Season 2. The Mandalorian: Season 1. Riverdale: Season 4. Saturday Night Live: Season Supergirl: Season 5.
