Beatles: Unheard John Lennon interview tapes up for auction

Monday, September 13, 2021

A set of previously unheard interview tapes featuring John Lennon speaking about his favourite Beatles songs are to be sold at auction.

Canadian journalist Ken Zeilig recorded the 91 minutes of interviews with the star, and Yoko Ono, on three separate occasions during 1969 and early 1970.

It is believed only five minutes have been aired, in the late 1980s.

Lennon also speaks of his musical influences, the future of The Beatles and how his wife changed his life.

He said he thought the band had "a positive effect" on the youth of the 1960s.

Lennon also recalls a Christmas memory in which he reached into a stocking and found a present of a mouth organ.

"That was one of the greatest moments of life, when I got my first harmonica," he said.

The 12 reel-to-reel tapes contain both edited and unedited interviews, Beatles music and detailed transcripts.
