BRITISH LEGENDS: JOHN LENNON - KING BISCUIT FLOWER HOUR

July 2, 2010 – 5:31 pm

JOHN LENNON
King Biscuit Flower Hour 1972 [no label, 1CD]

Live at Madison Square Garden, New York City, August 30, 1972. Very good radio broadcast.

On August 30, 1972, John Lennon did two shows at Madison Square Garden, New York City, as part of the One To One benefit. The first show was released as Live In New York City. According to the wikipedia, upon the album’s early 1986 release, Yoko Ono was criticized by former members of [backing band] Elephant’s Memory for using the first – and weaker – performance instead of the stronger evening show. The wikipedia also mentioned that “portions of the evening performance later saw release on the John Lennon Anthology.”

Thanks to JeffWeHo, who shared the lossless tracks on the internet, here are some tracks from the second show. JeffWeHo noted: “This is the original CD shipped to radio stations to play for the weekly ‘King Biscuit Flower Hour’. It was recorded on the same day as ‘Live In NYC’ but not the same performance.”
