John Lennon & Yoko Ono Make Peace In Toronto

John Lennon and Yoko Ono were an unstoppable team in 1969, hitting the US album charts three times over the course of the year.

The third release, an album recorded at the Toronto Rock and Roll Festival in September, was released in December and began its chart run on January 10, 1970.

Although live albums don’t usually perform as well as studio counterparts, the opposite was true for Lennon & Ono (and the Plastic Ono Band): Live Peace In Toronto 1969 proved to be the biggest release of the trio.

A guest appearance from Eric Clapton on lead guitar, plus renditions of Beatles songs, helped catapult the album past its predecessors.

The album never charted in the UK, but it made a 32-week run in the United States, reaching #10.
