It's good. I always thought it would fit well on Big Star Third.

Actually, it's "Holocaust," isn't it? The Wikipedia entry says Chilton appropriated it. Anyone have any more information? Did Chilton cite it? Or is that someone's assumption? (They really do sound identical.)

Peversely, I rather like some of Yoko's work. This is a bit sombre for my tastes generally, and specifically on this fine spring morning otherwise soundtracked by cooing wood pigeons and a pair of chattering herring gulls, but this (first listen as far as I know), but I do like it.

Of course it is. I don't know if Chilton ever copped to it.

I love it to bits, but yeah - 'Holocaust' steals every damned thing.
