Jamrag ( This track was included on John's 'Some Time In New York City' album, 1972. It was actually recorded in June 1971, when John performed with Frank Zappa and the Mothers Of Invention, at the Fillmore East, New York. When John released part of the concert on his album, he changed the title of the song from King Kong to Jamrag, a British slang word for a sanitary towel, and wrongly credited the song to Lennon/Ono. It was actually a Frank Zappa song. )
