Editorial Reviews

Installment in the Rare and Unseen series. On this volume, we take an inside look at the excitement, the thrills and the sheer talent of the man who made it as one of the world's most successful solo artists after his departure from the Beatles in 1969: John Lennon. From his musical and songwriting input with the Beatles (especially his partnership with McCartney) to his astronomical solo career, Lennon has certainly had a major impact in the music world. He played, he recorded and conquered the planet for two decades. This brand new DVD release is a collection of rare footage you won't find elsewhere! Features original rare film and videos of the singer, newsreels and photographs from private collections.

This dvd included lots of vintage Lennon footage I either hadn't seen in years or had never seen. It was historically accurate and I would highly recommend it.

I was not familiar with 90% of this footage. I like it for the full-coverage of Lennon's life and personality... From the duration of the Beatles, Lennon's attitude towards the break-up of the band, to his involvement and life in American culture. It is the raw footage that tells this story in itself.

It was no secret John established the Beatles as his own band before they ever had a manager. John was the ring-leader and main spokesman of the group. Unfortunately, he was not a tactful young guy. He was cynical, clearly rebellious and mistrusting of people. He was not a good spokesman, unlike McCartney, who was better able to pander to the public and journalists alike. John consistently got the band in hot water with journalists. Right from the beginning the band worried about John's vulnerability and physical safety. His words were often twisted by interviewers, and used in such a way to undermine the messages of his songs or incite the public.

This documentary shows how John began to make adjustments in his spoken word and interviews to become more effective, protest injustice, and get a message of peace to those who were also growing and changing with his generation.

The cover is better then the video but worth a purchase for anyone who is in love with the beatles to at least see the footage of John. I wouldn't consider it rare or unseen, but worth the 13.00 to purchase and have someone view it who enjoys watching anything and everything of John Lennon and the bEatles.

Though the footage of 1960's quality and sound is not great, the content is priceless. It depicted making of John lennon based on publicly available footage.I appreciated number of scenes that showed their true character than PR'd images.

It is amazing to see how he transformed from a self protective immature adult to person who stuck to his guns when he was challenged by KKK and christian fundies based on out of context comments of challenging christianity with rockroll.His disregard for the money and fame while making decision of parting their ways(from beatles) and his high ideals and innovative ideas for bringing the peace, objective clear thinking while not taking the ownership of peace movement( which will inevitably corrupted by drugs) is amazing. I highly recommend it.
