"Imagine" peace again - and again ~ February 2
Among her interpretations of songs by the Beatles, during the group’s collective and solo years, chanting the mantra - peace and love – here’s “Imagine” performed “Live at Wood Hall” by Canadian musician Allison Crowe.
Gerry Deiter, assigned by 'Life' magazine, was the only photographer present for the entire eight-day Bed-In staged by John Lennon and Yoko Ono at Montreal’s Queen Elizabeth Hotel in 1969. His collection of images from that happening come together in the book "Give Peace a Chance: John & Yoko's Bed-In for Peace" - compiled by Joan Athey and edited by Paul McGrath.
And Joan Athey’s graciously allowed Gerry Deiter’s photographs to accompany the music to make this video.
Since it’s Groundhog Day leading us into the week celebrating 50 years of Beatlemania in North America+ - here’s an encore version of “Imagine” recorded by Allison at home – with peace signs courtesy of Top Pun.
