On what would be John’s 75th birthday, the HMC label have announced a brand new 2 DVD set of ‘Double Fantasy’ era visual material.
“Lennon – The 1980 video collection” features a great collection of studio tracks, demo works and home movies from the Lennon archives.
While some of this material may have been heard on audio bootlegs previously, the video source material will be new to even the most hardened of Beatles collectors and from the remainder will surpass a lot of those old video tapes that you have to track through for material in much better quality.
