Description
John Lennon and Yoko Ono 1969 Montreal Bed-In Color Photos. Limited edition prints (1000 total) from their stately Queen Elizabeth Hotel room in Montreal on May 26, 1969 to stage their second weeklong bed-in for peace. On June 1, 1969, the duo requested recording equipment. Oversize lyrics went up on the walls. And John and Yoko, along with Dr.Timothy Leary, Montreal Rabbi Abraham Feinberg, musicians Derek Taylor and Petula Clark, and members of the Canadian Radha Krishna Temple in the chorus, recorded 'Give Peace a Chance.' The single is credited to 'The Plastic Ono Band.' Five weeks later, on July 7, the 45 was released in the United States. 'Give Peace a Chance' reached no. 14 on Billboard's chart. These four photos numbered 16/1000, 23/1000, 25/1000, and 30/100. 10" x 14". No Reserve.
