Lennon and McCartney in October
|Rehearsals for the One to One concerts|
Yesterday, the official John Lennon accounts on Facebook and Instagram published the above photo from the One to One rehearsal. The caption went:
Which one would you like to have heard?
On this day 20 Aug 1972 – At the Fillmore East at 105 2nd Ave & E6th St, NYC, John & Yoko and Elephants Memory rehearsed a series of songs for the upcoming ONE TO ONE Concert at Madison Square Garden:
Give Peace A Chance
Well Well Well
New York City
It’s So Hard
O Sisters O Sisters
Woman Is The Nigger Of The World
Don’t Worry Kyoko
It’s Only Make Believe
Open Your Box
We’re All Water
Move On Fast
Roll Over Beethoven
New York City
Long Tall Sally
Back Off Boogaloo
The posting has further boosted the rumour mill about an upcoming DVD/Blu-ray release of the recently revised film and audio recordings from these concert. At the request of Yoko, Jack Douglas has been working on these recording for some time now, as technology has finally caught up with how poorly this was recorded. Footage earlier deemed unusable for the 1985 video cassette/laser disc releases has now been improved enough by new techniques to be slated for inclusion.
If the photo really is a teaser for an upcoming release, it’s likely that the release date will be on or around October 9, when Lennon would have celebrated his 75th birthday.

And just a few hours ago, Paul McCartney’s website and Facebook account announced the first published date of Sir Paul’s autumn tour, with a date in Toronto, Canada – October 17th.
