All in all: not worth the buy. Maybe only for a good live version of Yer Blues and Cold Turkey.

Lennon,Clapton,White & Voorman: a rock "n" roll band in rock "n" roll classics.But...sorry John, where Yoko to insert? It`s a pity, Yoko voice is a annoyance to mortal ears.The love is blind and sometimes,deaf.One more time:Sorry, John.

In many respects I am unqualified to rate this album, since the folks who rate this album highly do so for two reasons: (1) The sound fidelity is supposedly magnificent, and (2) Yoko\'s music is given a lot of retrospective love for the way it has influenced (more accurately, predated) music of the 1980-90\'s such as Courtney Love and Nirvana and Bjork. Well, as for (1), I am no audiophile; all I have is a portable little CD boombox. I am just as happy with rustic Beatle recordings from Live at the BBC as I am with the state-of-the-art recording accountrements of Chaos and Creation in the Backyard, and as for (2) I grew to love and appreciate Yoko because (a) John Lennon loved and appreciated her and (b) when she turned her mind to writing pop songs, she learned quickly and wrote good songs with superb, memorable lyrics. I love everything from Abba to ZZ Top, but this \'conceptual\' and \'punk\' stuff can be dumped into the bottom of the sea for all of me.
What that leaves for this album is this: (1) Some classic rock and roll songs performed by legends who had little to no time to rehearse. (2) John John Let\'s Hope for Peace. Next... (3) A jacked-up price tag for remastering which I don\'t give a hoot about. (4) A calendar (what??) augmented by the pseudo-philosophical musings of Yoko and snatches of John\'s song lyrics that I already know by heart. (5) An introduction of the \"Plastic Ono Band\" and the twice spoken slogan \"Give Peace a Chance\" which causes me to laugh out loud--yeah right, those thousands gathered because they were so hot to bring peace to the world. Who\'s trying to fool whom?? When this humble little project is held up against the preparation and heart involved in George Harrison\'s Concert for Bangladesh, this is an utter embarrassment.
If you know this album you can review it.
