John Lennon Live In NYC
« on: March 23, 2004, 05:16:43 PM »

I think the posthumous live album John Lennon Live In NYC released in 86 is mostly mediocre which doesn't represent John at his finest as a solo artist since it's kind of a ragged live performance with Elephant's Memory even though there are few highlights like Come Together, New York City, Hound Dog & Well Well Well which is why Live Peace In Toronto is a helluva lot better, excluding Yoko's part, along with the live track Baby Please Don't Go(Well) with Frank Zappa on Sometime In NYC.

Unfortunately it was a very under-rehearsed concert, as is apparent by some of the messed up endings - Mother for example.

Dang I completely agree. And I <3 john. He didn't sing 1/2 the songs correctly. which is painful for an avid beatle fan to listen to.

I think LPIT showcases John at his finest & his ballsiest as a rocker with some blistering live versions of Blue Suede Shoes, Yer Blues, Dizzy Miss Lizzy & Money with the original Plastic Ono Band consisting of Eric Clapton, Klaus Voorman & Alan White which is his best live performance as a solo artist while he looks so damn cool wearing his famous white suit from Abbey Road in the video.

live peace is only good bcause clapton and white shine.klaus is good but is mediocroce.john was made to look good.he was probally trying to get up money for a score.for the perfectionist in him was gone in most live shows after 65.he just didn't care for it.it seems so.the fillmore with zappa is some awful stuff too.it seems he was no longer inspired.just my veiw.
