Alternate Mind Games [The Home(r) Entertainment Network HEN 047, 1CD]

Collection of studio outtakes/alternates and demos recorded for Mind Games 1973. Very good to excellent soundboard.

John Lennon would have been 75 on October 9. To remember the man, here’s an Alternate Mind Games.

Thanks to ZeppHead72 for sharing the show in 2006.

ZeppHead72 noted:

Excellent stereo quality probably from very low gen tapes. The studio cuts are obviously better quality than the demos. For demos they are still very nice quality and enjoyable to listen to.

  7. AS ALWAYS: Thank YOU Big O.

    I bought this recording and have been rewarded with many hours of intimate Lennon that the world wasn’t privy to. Thank you BIG O as the world needed this one.
    Quality Lennon ROIS aren’t impossible to find but this is a superior cut of Lennon! Invaluable and absolutely necessary for a collection.

    By John McNea on Oct 14, 2015

  8. Where can I download more Lennon Roio’s ? I don’t go to C.D fairs but I do want more of this stuff ! Do you have to pay on other Internet sites to download?

    By Sarah Novak on Oct 15, 2015

  9. Sarah, Go the bottom of the page, click the closed shows. A lot still are able to be opened. There is a lot of music free, here. If you go elsewhere, be careful, some sites have links which contain viruses or spyware. All the sites I use are free. Good luck, & good night. jimg PS Thanks to BigO for many years of great free shows.

  10. Thank You Again BigO
    I still cry when I think of the man about peace and love being killed by a crazed person with a gun. All these years later it still hurts. I always felt until the day he died he was singing to me and only me. I still believe “All You Need is Love”, Thank You, John Lennon!

  17. Am I the only one who can’t download this awesome music on your site. I have in the past but now when I try first I get a “Checking Your Browser” before I can enter this site. And not able to download any music at all. I get a “Failed - Server Problem” every time I try any songs at all. I am at a loss as to why. Been 3 to 4 days trying. Can you help Big-O? I even tried a different computer and get the same results. Thank You all so much for all the fantastic music I have been able to get in the past. Rick V.

  18. rick vee..I hear your pain bro..i have been getting this message every time i try to even get to big o anymore..

  19. Hello Rick and sluggo

    We have been under spam attack and hoping this new set up will help cut that down. It takes a very short while - a couple of seconds - to check the browser and after that you are in. Sometimes, you will need to refresh the page a couple of times to access it.

    By bigozine2 on Nov 3, 2015

  20. thanks! big o ,I wondered if it was something like that. Appreciate all that you do!

    By sluggo on Nov 3, 2015

  21. thanks bigO! i’ve been having problems with your fine site loading recently, it looks like a change for the better.

    By barth on Nov 3, 2015

  22. Still no luck. Guess I’ll check back later. Damn Spammers. Guessing some people never do grow up. I do feel sorry for people like that. Must be they are very low on grey matter. Thanks Big-O and hope this clears up for all our sake’s. Always someone to ruin a good thing. Rick Vee

    By Rick Vee on Nov 3, 2015

  23. Finally got it. May be like the weather, “Don’t like it? Want a minute”. New England is very much like that though I no longer live up there. Again, Thank You Big-O.
