You gotta love him...
...or else you'll think this app is boring. I do love the John and Yoko story so I was pleased with this short romp in a chapter of their lives. I wish it lasted longer, but that's true of his life on the whole. At first I was really annoyed by the poor audio quality but it's only bad on the first chapter, presumably because of the background noise of the sea, wind and boat. So keep going - it gets better.
Beautiful. The tapes detail the intimate collaboration between John and Yoko as the songs developed from inception to finish. I really loved hearing my favorite songs acoustically and with none of the finishing touches. Some of the recordings on the tapes were much more appealing to me than the radio versions of the songs. A gift to Lennon & Yoko fans everywhere.
An overproduced treasure
Definitely worth getting BUT ... Prepare to be annoyed by background music thSt makes John's voice even harder to hear than the old recording itself. I appeciate the production effort but I would rather hear it unadorned or just hear it. Thanks for the app though. I really treasure this collection.
