This is part 22 of my series on John's home demos. To understand the abbreviations I use in the description, please refer to the original video in the series. I think I messed up this video (the picture doesn't go on all the way through) so for that I apologize, but the audio is all there:
Audio Diary from October 10th, 1979 (October 10th, 1979, TD) -- This audio diary references Yoko Ono's song Looking Over From My Hotel Window. A more complete version of this tape is alleged to exist, but I have yet to find it.
Not For Love Or Money (October 10th, 1979, TD) -- This was recorded immediately after the audio diary.
I DID NOT include these in the video due to their lengths, but in terms of progression (and these are already uploaded to my YouTube account so you're not missing anything) these are next. I will refer to them using the titles I used in the YouTube videos:
John Lennon and Sean Lennon talking about birthdays (Late October, 1979, TD) -- More than likely recorded shortly after their birthdays of that year. John's 39th birthday and Sean's 4th.
Raw Dialogue (Thanksgiving weekend, 1979, in the kitchen at The Dakota) -- Quite a lengthy recording featuring Sean and John drawing caricatures while Yoko deals with the business on the phone. An extended version of Sean's Little Help (which was featured on the Lennon anthology in a shorter version) is also enclosed within this.
Sean's in the Sky (Thanksgiving weekend, 1979, The Dakota) -- This was later released on Wonsaponatime and the Anthology, but it is more than likely a continuation from the previous dialogue recording. This is actually featured in this video
Sean's Loud (Late 1979, TD) -- This was featured, albeit in a much shorter version, on the Lennon anthology. This is not a part of the previous tapes, but it can be assumed this was recorded some time afterward. This is John and Sean bonding over music and John attempting to teach Sean a few guitar tricks.
Sean's Serve Yourself and Be-Bop-A-Lula (Late 1979, The Dakota) -- This is more than likely a continuation of Sean's Loud and it can be assumed that it was recorded shortly after Sean's Loud.
Okay, again, those tracks starting from Sean and John talking about birthdays to Sean's Serve Yourself (except for Sean's in the Sky) are NOT featured in this video, but can be found in my uploads. Everything hereafter will be in the video.
She Runs Them Round in Circles / Beautiful Boy (Darling Boy) [Late 1979, early 1980, TD) -- There is no specific date for the recording of these demos, but they were more than likely recorded back to back in late 1979 or very early 1980.
