  2. Thank you for this release. These tracks illustrate the musical genius and the humor of John Lennon. Let’s hope we haven’t seen the end of these rarities by John.

  3. Listening to this for free is one thing(thanks again BIG O!)…having to pay is another( if I found it in a shop, I surely did buy it)…after listening to the first part…Ok, it’s a document…but most of this is pretty useless…even though, John just superb!

  6. One request: could you post artwork that is printable for these? It is impossible to read the track listings.

    By Belmo on Jun 30, 2009

  7. Great stuff here. A big surprise is “Mr. Moonlight”, as I think this working is far more enjoyable than the official Beatles release.
    Thanx for all this!

  11. Very cool stuff. Some of the Cry Baby Cry tapes on D1 sound like they might’ve ended up on “Two Virgins” somehow. That repeating bird whistle thing sure sounds familiar. Intereting! Thanks BigO staff! -M

    By steve h on Aug 8, 2009

  15. There are something like 32 takes on “Whatever Gets You Through The Night” in this set. I think I’ll eliminate all but one and put it all on one CD. The full 32 is for the serious Lennon aficionado or collector, not me. But I’ll save one, and everything else.

    By O.B. Dan on Aug 8, 2009

  16. To whom ever had DJ Winston O’Boogie, or Listen to this Radio Show in its entire show. I read on here that someone might have it, and might post it. And, after years of looking for it. I nearly had a seizure. Which makes me wonder… Should I look here again? HELL YES!!! LOL Even, if it means my untimely death due to seizure. FOR THE LOVE OF GOD POST IT!!! YOU WILL BE MY HERO IF YOU DO!!! :)

  17. Hey I stumbled in here because I was wondering if you knew where I could dl the John Lennon dj for a day when he dj’d for KMET in Los Angeles or KLOS? I used to have it on a hard drive that went bad.

    By pat on Aug 17, 2009

  18. I have the Lennon DJ for a Day on CD. Send me your email and I will let you know when I get it up on either Demonoid or Dime.
