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!
