Description


An incredible one-of-a-kind collection of three reels of 8mm color film (no sound) of Lennon performing at the One to One concert on August 30, 1972, at Madison Square Garden. The first reel is 2:52 in length and shows Lennon and Yoko Ono together at two pianos as he performs ‘Imagine,’ including the end where Lennon leans over and lovingly kisses Yoko’s shoulder and then the two sharing a kiss before leaving their benches. The second reel is 3:01 long with the first 30 seconds showing Yoko Ono at the end of a song, most likely ‘We’re All Water,’ backed by Lennon and Elephant’s Memory, and then Lennon beginning ‘Cold Turkey.’ The final reel, also 3:01 in length, shows the conclusion to the rousing encore of ‘Give Peace A Chance,’ where Lennon, Ono, and the band are joined on stage by Stevie Wonder, Melanie, Roberta Flack, and Sha Na Na. Lennon and Yoko exit the stage about thirty seconds into the reel, however the rest of the band’s performance and revelry continues until the end of the reel. Each reel is housed in its protective plastic cover, with one reel labeled “Lennon,” in an unknown hand. In fine condition.

After the release of Sometime In New York City, Lennon agreed to headline two charity concerts to benefit the Willowbrook Home, a facility for learning disabled children, and the event was called One To One. Both concerts were filmed and recorded, and performances from the afternoon show eventually compiled for release in 1986 as Live In New York City. Sadly, these two shows were Lennon’s first, and last, full-length solo concerts since the Beatles stopped touring in 1966. These films capture Lennon giving two of his most moving performances from the show, and have certainly never been offered for public viewing. RR Auction COA.
