not a lot of face shots in this vid but still pretty amazing to see..1980 footage is pretty scarce so hopefully this is just the beginning....

 

admin, feel free to relocate to a more appropriate thread if this isn't the right spot for this.

Considering the rarity of the footage its fine where it is. I've added the video below so folk can watch without having to head to youtube.

Yeesh whenever I see 1980-John, he always looks so unhealthy, just a pile of skin and bones. 

I kind of just want to throw some rashers, gammon, bacon at him.

I do like the animation though.

Has that take of Losing You appeared on an album? It sounds better than the album version (without actually comparing, just from memory). I like the guitar.

It's included on the official Lennon Anthology set @Expert Textpert as well as being booted. It even got it's own video, which the video in post one the Cheap Trick footage from.

Cool, I have the Anthology but I don't play it enough. The talking parts in between can be annoying.

Yeah. It wasnt compiled very well with many of the takes being either very similar to the final version or the selections being weird bordering on pointless (the 'Yesterday ' parody, 'Maggie Mae ' for two examples). Thats not to say there aren't some great moments; 'Baby, Please Don't Go' and the material from the 'Mind Games ', 'Walls And Bridges ' and 'Rock and Roll' sessions being my favourites.

The guitar itself or the tone of the guitar in the song?

Yoko has since removed this video, could anyone who's viewed it before the 'Copyright Claim' shed some light on what "new" footage, in fact, was leaked here?  Be interested to know, thanks...:-)

The sound the guitar is making.

That's the version he cut with cheap trick isn't it ? Incredible that it was left off the record.

The footage was recorded during the 'Double Fantasy ' sessions for possible release as a promo for a single but John was unhappy with the results and so it never got used. It was believed to have been destroyed but 20 minutes or so exists of which very small excerpts have been used in a couple of documentaries before more finally surfaced to form this promo. Wogblog posted an article on the footage going into the details back in August.
