If there was one song that exemplified the anti-war movement in the early 70s it was “Give Peace a Chance” by John Lennon and the Plastic Ono Band. Lennon was accompanied on acoustic guitar by Tommy Smothers of the Smothers Brothers. The original release of the 45 in 1969 on Apple records is worth up to $100.00 with its picture sleeve. In 1994 Capitol records reissued “Give Peace a Chance.” There was no picture sleeve but the record is also worth up to $100.00 today.
