1972 John & Yoko Interview Now Available in Its Entirety

Sunday, November 25, 2012

Counterculture reporter Howard Smith's 1972 interview with John Lennon & Yoko Ono can be heard in its entirety now on Amazon and iTunes.

The conversations--with John and Yoko, and many other prominent figures of the 60's and 70's such as Jim Morrison, Frank Zappa and Eric Clapton--have been sourced, dated, indexed, and digitally re-mastered by researcher and documentarian Ezra Bookstein.
