VIDEO: John Lennon – “Just One of The Boys” (REDUX).

A month or so ago, we posted a roundup of user-created imaginary Beatle reunion tracks. (Check that story out here.)  It seems we had forgotten one of them in the mix.  It is a wonderful listen, and I will put it next to the other “imaginary reunion” tracks on my iPod.

I see this track alongside George Harrison’s “When We Was Fab.”  It’s a little bit of Lennon fun, with John reminiscing of the past fondly.

John Lennon – One of The Boys

Here’s what we’ve read.

This originally sparce demo by John Lennon with only a guitar and him singing has been significantly augmented by two other “boys”! One is a guy named Nil, who synced a kick drum to John Lennon’s original track, and the other is Rich Leavitt, who added a full synth drum track, a few guitars, bass, and backing vocals. They both post to The Beatles newsgroup RMB (rec.music.beatles) and have done a fine job in bringing this great song, that John had intended for a Broadway production, closer to being complete. Enjoy!

  1. Check out this new CD! It sounds for the world like a new Beatles album with 11 new Lennon/McCartney/Harrison songs. This debut album by “The About”, titled “Iter Itineris” has received great reviews from Beatles fan clubs, Beatles radio stations, and even The Beatles former Apple Records manager, Ken Mansfield. Click on the link below for free sound clips and to read comments made about this amazing new album which is actually causing some people to ask which Beatles album these songs appeared on. The CD sounds much clearer and more powerful than the sound clips, but you can get an idea of what The About is about. http://www.cdbaby.com/TheAbout
