Following their live debut at the Toronto Rock and Roll Revival festival, the Plastic Ono Band were taken to the private estate owned by wealthy Canadian businessman John David Eaton.
They stayed at the estate for two nights, and on this, the day after the concert, relaxed and toured the estate grounds in golf carts.
When it was over we all piled into four big cars and drove for two hours to a huge estate owned by a Mr Eaton, who is one of the richest men in Canada. His son had actually picked us up after the show so that we could stay overnight at his house.
The Plastic Ono Band flew back to England the following day, 15 September 1969.

Somehow, I find the thought of John and Yoko in a golf cart hilarious.
