Are there many groups mourning his loss?

  

You'd be surprised.

Following the death of Daily Express journalist Judith Simons, among her belongings was found a letter from Aunt Mimi, written on 24 January 1981, thanking Judith for her condolences:

Mimi-Smith-24-January-1981-Tracks-Ltd.-PA.jpgImage Enlarger

It reads:

Dear Judith,

Thank you for your letter, kind thoughts.

I'm trying to accept this terrible thing which has happened, but finding it very hard. He had such faith himself, I'm trying to do the same.

He phoned the night before, witty, funny, bubbling over with excitement, coming over very soon. Couldn't wait to see me. So I'm glad of that.

If I'm in London, I'll get in touch with you. Kind thoughts to you too.

Mimi.

Mark Lewisohn has said the letter "provides solid confirmation that, but for his murder, Lennon would have returned to Britain during 1981 for the first time in 10 years."

The letter is being auctioned by Tracks Ltd.

At the beginning of December last year, Bob Dylan released in limited numbers (100 copies) his annual European round-up of unreleased material from 50 years ago, Bob Dylan – 50th Anniversary Collection: 1970, to prevent it falling out of copyright.

Viewed as little more than a housekeeping exercise by Dylan, little effort is put into these releases, though they are invaluable to fans who - in the age of the internet - are easily able to find digital copies to download somewhere on the web. The 1970 edition was always of interest to Beatles fans as it included a 1 May 1970 session with George, from which only a couple of tracks had seen the light of day (on different volumes of his Bootleg Series releases).

I missed the announcement of this on 18 December, but for the first time a 50th Anniversary Collection is to receive a full commercial release in February as Bob Dylan – 1970 (50th Anniversary Collection):

By Popular Demand, Bob Dylan – 1970 (50th Anniversary Collection) to Be Widely Released by Columbia Records/Legacy Recordings on February 26, 2021

3-Disc Collection of Previously Unavailable Studio Performances includes Complete May 1,1970 Session featuring George Harrison

December 18, 2020-New York, NY-Columbia Records and Legacy Recordings, the catalog division of Sony Music Entertainment, announce the forthcoming release of Bob Dylan – 1970, the first widely available pressing of a three-disc collection of long-sought-after studio recordings, on Friday, February 26.

The recordings on Bob Dylan – 1970 were first released in a limited edition on December 4 as part of the Bob Dylan – 50th Anniversary Collection copyright extension series (which began in 2012). The buzz surrounding the 1970 performances, notably Dylan’s studio sit-down with George Harrison on May 1, created a demand for a broader release of these historic tracks.

Bob Dylan – 1970 includes previously unreleased outtakes from the sessions that produced Self Portrait and New Morning as well as the complete May 1, 1970 studio recordings with George Harrison , which capture the pair performing together on nine tracks*, including Dylan originals ("One Too Many Mornings," "Gates of Eden," "Mama, You Been On My Mind"), covers (the Everly Brothers' "All I Have to Do Is Dream," Carl Perkins' "Matchbox ") and more.

Yoko Ono and the Estate of John Lennon are among the founders of a new music documentary/concert streaming service, The Coda Collection, which will launch in the US via Amazon Prime Video Channels on 18 February, priced $4.99 a month, with a free seven-day trial.

Others involved include Janie Hendrix of Experience Hendrix, veteran entertainment lawyer Jonas Herbsman, John McDermott, who has directed a raft of Hendrix docs. It is backed by Sony Music It is run by co-founder and CEO Jim Spinello.

It will also have desktop and mobile sites run by music critic Greg Kot, which will feature editorial content that will offer "new perspectives on the artists, the music, and the cultural context that makes those moments resonate with audiences around the world."

The service will launch with 150 titles, with more in the pipeline.

Spinello said:

What's being lost in today's swarm of streaming services and search engines is the deep connection that is fueled by the stories that surround all the songs and artists that we love. The Coda Collection is being built to bring to life all the stories between the songs for both artists and fans.

Yoko commented:

John Lennon was always on the cutting edge of music and culture. The Coda Collection will be a new way for fans to connect on a deeper level.

While Janie Hendrix said in a statement:

The way the world appreciates music is evolving and changing. The Coda Collection is how we grow with that change. It transcends basic music streaming and takes fans on a real journey into the heart of the songs they love and the artists, like Jimi Hendrix, who created those songs. There will always be the desire to know more about Jimi, and what drove his creativity. So much went into his concerts and performances. There was background, a backstory, and depth to it all. Coda reveals all the various dimensions, and I’m proud to be a part of making it happen.

Ringo Starr locked in trademark battle over his iconic name - 'wants no association'

I'm miffed at the author of this article for saying..."as well as suggesting their customers would not be of the generation to connect the item with the Beatle." Hey, chick, people from all generations love the Beatles. Just take a look at the age ranges on this forum.

Poor Ring O... I mean...Ringo. Some nice free advertising for them there- I wouldn't have connected Ring O to Ringo by itself but now that Ringo has drawn attention to it, it's all I see!!

I had a run-in with a reporter recently. I told her a bunch of good stuff, but she only printed one off-the-cuff comment that I thought made me look dumb. I guess that's why I rook out my frustration on the reporter, @The Hole Got Fixed.
