September 11: John Lennon and Yoko Ono on the Dick Cavett Show 1971
John Lennon and Yoko Ono made their first appearance on The Dick Cavett show on September 11, 1971 to present their new work. They do small-talk and jokes around. They discuss John Lennon’s evolving career. It is mostly a PR-job: showing some film clips and Yoko plays a track from the album Fly.
John Lennon is the star here, as always, and Cavett sometimes has problems following Lennon’s constant stream of wittiness. Lennon had just released the Imagine album in the U.S. (Sept.9,1971), which climbing the charts. The “Imagine film” is at the end of the show.
