He released it on Playground Psychotics, about 20 years after John and 
Yoko released it on Sometime In New York City.  Presumably he must 
have liked it a bit since he chose to release it, although his choice 
of the song title "A Small Eternity With Yoko Ono" may reflect mixed 
feelings.

About all I know that he said about it is that he was annoyed that 
John & Yoko retitled "King Kong" "Jamrag" on their release and took 
writers credit for themselves, and that they censored Howard Kaylan's 
vocal on "Scumbag."

The John/Yoko portion is the only part of the show that circulates on 
video.  It was rumored to have been shot by someone working for them, 
which might explain why it focuses on them without giving much 
attention to the Mothers.

BTW, Yoko dropped this performance, except for "Well," from the most 
recent CD reissue of Sometime In NYC.
