Let me start by saying I am no great expert on this kind of DVD. I have always liked the Beatles music but have never really got into the many DVDs archiving the Beatles and everything connected with them.
However having said that, I must now say how much I enjoyed watching this John Lennon DVD, which comes from the same stable that produced the fascinating "Magical Mystery Tour Memories".
The whole thing was nicely paced and presented chronologically, which made it easy on the brain! There is certainly some nice archive film of John, showing his humorous and often too honest style. Featuring clips from such rare TV programmes as Aquarius, Weekend World and Man of The Decade, but my own favourite was John and Yoko on Frost. Seeing John more or less taking over the show and eclipsing the great David Frost is a great moment and you start to think - what if? There is always that with someone whose life didn't run its full course.
There are also a few modern day opinions thrown in by Tony Barrow, Colin Hanton, Phil Collins, and more surprisingly and interestingly Tony Booth.
This DVD left me hungry for more, that's not to say it was lacking in any way, just that it was so interesting it left you wanting more.
So I think this DVD will appeal to both the John expert and the casual viewer, it has been skilfully edited and well presented and there is definitely a space for it in any collection.
