Dec. 3, 2009

ecently some rare and unreleased John Lennon recordings were discovered in a vault. These recordings were taped on August 19, 1980. They were done separately from the mysteriously missing video footage that was filmed at what is believed to be John Lennon's last recording session with his band prior to his death. Even more incredible, these recordings have never been released until now.

Twenty-nine years ago on December 8, 1980, The Beatles fans were stunned by four senseless shots fired into the back of John Lennon. He was only 40 and had become one of the most influential musicians of all time. That night the world stood still and silent for a moment. These one of a kind Lennon recordings are available for purshase at along with the story about the evening these tapes were recorded.

John had left The Beatles in 1970 and went on to record solo albums which all became classics. First came John Lennon/Plastic Ono Band and then Imagine. The songs "Give Peace a Chance" and "Imagine" would create a worldwide movement. Then came "Happy Xmas (War is Over)." In 1973, Lennon released Mind Games; in September 1974, Walls and Bridges and the single "Whatever Gets You Thru the Night"; in 1975 Rock 'n' Roll was released, on April 18th 1975 Lennon made his last TV appearance performing "Imagine"; in October 1975, Lennon releases Shaved Fish.

It was in August 1980 when Lennon entered the Hit Factory recording studios in New York City, where he recorded the Double Fantasy album, and this tape was recorded the last night that he was ever in the studio with his band.

Released in memory of John Lennon. We miss you.
