Beatles Rarity Of The Week – “Plastic Ono Band” (warm up jam)

Welcome to the Beatles Rarity of the Week. The John Lennon/Plastic Ono Band album released on December 11th, 1970 is considered by many Beatles fans as one of the best to come out of any of The Beatles since their break up. Up to this point, John’s work outside of The Beatles had been mainly […]

Beatles Rarity Of The Week – “Don’t Let Me Down” (second rooftop performance)
