Well, I have been remastering all of them recently; I have only two uploaded at the moment.

Hey that's where I was listening to them from!  Nice job!

"Please don't bring your banjo back, I know where it's been..  I wasn't hardly gone a day, when it became the scene..  Banjos!  Banjos!  All the time, I can't forget that tune..  and if I ever see another banjo, I'm going out and buy a big balloon!"

The beauty of listening to these recordings chronologically is the clear picture represented of just how much the group grew (together & apart) during such a prolific yet insane period in history.  The Pantomime 'Everywhere It's Christmas' gets my vote for best one for it very effectively captures the Christmas Spirit on tape, which isn't easy to do, it's a Timeless Classic that very much belongs amongst their startling body of work.  The 1968 & 1969 releases do have their moments, despite their apparent unpopularity, most notably Tiny Tim's rousing rendition of 'Nowhere Man', that was excellent.  Another moment worth mentioning, if however depressing, is John's piece "Once upon a time there were two balloons called Jack & Yono" where he reflects upon "overcoming oddities such as their Beast Friends" which is an obvious reference to the hostile treatment that he and Yoko were receiving by even those once closest to John.  Very reminiscent of the ramblings projected in John's earlier book releases, which often saw the "harsher" literature as also the best material, such as the brilliant (but downright nasty) 'Our Dad' where he venomously declares, "Our Dad was a cumbersome old drag, he soon got the message and began to pack his bag", ouch...
