As we first reported to you last year, work continues on a massive reissue for John Lennon’s only fully rehearsed solo concert performance from 1972. Producer Jack Douglas, best known for his work with Aerosmith, Cheap Trick, and Lennon’s final 1980 songs on Double Fantasy and Milk And Honey, is now restoring the two iconic shows for an upcoming release. On August 30th, 1972, Lennon and Yoko Ono were backed by Elephants Memory for a pair of shows at New York’s Madison Square Garden. The performances — known as the One To One concerts — included an afternoon matinee and an evening performance, and benefited the Willowbrook House, with the proceeds from the shows going to help establish new accommodations for the mentally handicapped inhabitants of the former Willowbrook institution in Long Island, New York.
