In September of 1971, John Lennon and Yoko Ono relocated to Greenwich Village in New York City and found themselves at the epicenter of political activism. They soon became friends with high profile activists Jerry Rubin and Abbie Hoffman and began making public appearances protesting the Vietnam War and the imprisonment of Angela Davis and John Sinclair. Fearing Lennon’s influence and more specifically, that he had the ability to humiliate President Richard Nixon, the FBI began investigating, documenting John and Yoko’s every move in an effort to find grounds on which to deport him.

The D.I.R. Network was also on hand to record the One To One event and in December of 1972 aired excerpts, including the five John and Yoko songs featured These five performances, all taken from the evening performance, have never been officially released, with the exception of a short excerpt of "Give Peace A Chance." Compared to the afternoon show, John seems more comfortable and the band performances are stronger. One may wonder why the afternoon performances were favored for the officially released CD, when these may indeed be superior performances.

The recording begins with John introducing "Mother," the single from his first solo album. With typical Lennonesque ...
