A limited edition vinyl featuring Yoko Ono performing on stage alongside RZA in Los Angeles is now available.

The dramatic performance happened in 2010 at an art-like evening that featured the two playing chess and doing duets.

Now they’ve teamed up to release a 10″ commemorating the event, featuring live recordings of two songs: “Seed of Joy / Life Is a Struggle” and Yoko Ono’s Plastic Ono Band’s “Greenfield Morning I Pushed An Empty Baby Carriage All Over The City”.

The 10″ is part of an ongoing series of collaborative releases from Yoko Ono; it’ll be out in a limited run of 1,000 on one-sided vinyl with Yoko’s etching on the b-side.

Proceeds from the sale of the vinyl and the downloads will go a Staten Island organization called the Children’s Literary Society. Find the vinyl here – chimeramusic.com
