JOHN LENNON & PAUL McCARTNEY: LA JAM SESSIONS 1974 2 CD Of the sessions recorded and released here, the first was recorded a LA’s Record Plant studios on the 28th of March, 1974 as John partied with a group of like minded lunatics as they slowly got more and more drunk and evidently more coked up. The sessions from the evening were booted in the mid-nineties as Mistrals, ‘A Toot And A Snore, ’74’ (Evidently a mistake made in translation as, as we know, ‘snort’ is more likely to be the operative term for what was going on in the studio that night.) The tape used here is said to be a generation higher and slightly longer - It certainly sounds clearer, it’s still rough as the volume is pushed to its highest levels there is a certain amount of distortion here and there. Nothing that can’t ruin the mood of this smokey little get-together but it would be a blissfully Beatle awed mind that might find a great deal of promise from this rag-bag of oldies and jams. Fast forward to May and we have “Sunday Night At The Record Plant”! The session tape leads in with a spark-out version of both ‘Rock Island Line’ and ‘Midnight Special’ sung, not especially well, by John and Paul Simon. It’s a straight forward sing along before John turns the real lyrics in to expletives, realising that things are going nowhere, Simon asks what else fits the tune and someone calls out for the second track instead…
