Celebrate the 70th Anniversary of John Lennon's Birth With A Live Concert Recording

Today John Lennon would have turned 70, had he not been shot in December of 1980. In November of 1980 he released his last record, Double Fantasy, after 5 years on hiatus from music recording. This week on iTunes they have a massive collection of his newly remastered work, including a free version of Starting Over from Double Fantasy. There is even a 11-CD ‘signature box’ with loads and loads of extras.

If you want to listen to some great live Lennon, head on over to Wolfgang’s Vault John Lennon Tribute, where they are featuring a 1972 John Lennon concert recorded in New York City, as well as the infamous 1969 ‘Bed-In’ in Montreal.

And here is a YouTube links to one of my favorite Lennon songs, Instant Kharma:

Here is Jealous Guy, another example of his great songwriting:

Next, Working Class Hero:

Also, from the ‘stripped down’ Double Fantasy release, here is Woman:
