John Lennon Missing Recordings Discovered and Released
LAS VEGAS, Dec 03, 2009 /PRNewswire via COMTEX/ ----Recently 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 08, 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.

For the first time ever these newly discovered recordings are available for a pre-order purchase at www.LennonTapes.com and at your request, the pre-order allows you to direct the email download on December 23rd to be sent to yourself or your friends as a Christmas gift. For only $10 US, this is one of the best gifts that you can give this Christmas.
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.
