A Toot and a Snore in '74

Hey guys, today we're looking of the only known recording of Lennon and McCartney performing together after the Beatles-breakup. It is the recording of a jam session from 1974 where John was on his Lost Weekend, his period in which John was separated from Yoko. The thing is recorded in Los Angeles
The session includes the two ex-Beatles, Stevie Wonder, Harry Nillson, Jesse Ed Davis and Bobby Keyes.

The record starting with John asking Stevie: "You wanna snort, Steve? A toot? It's goin' round", the are obviously doing cocaine.
Anyway, they start to jam a bit, and later do some pretty interesting versions of Stand By Me. Lennon keeps complaining about how his headphones aren't working and whatnot.

While this is one of the lesser interesting bootleg recordings, in my opinion, it is in some way pretty cool and kinda historic, I guess. Since it is, as mentioned earlier, the only known recording of Lennon and McCartney jamming together after the breakup.

Here's the download: http://www.mediafire.com/?o4lt13kbt9ryh1y

Enjoy, and stay tuned for more.
