Guide to the Track Notes

The abbreviation LLT stands for the Lost Lennon Tapes, in both the radio series and the Bag bootlegs derived from it.

"8 Arms ID"s refer to entries in Chip Madinger and Mark Easter's book Eight Arms to Hold You: The Solo Beatles Compendium, and are given in the form "p.X, #Y[.Z]:a.1", where X is a page in the book, Y is an entry number, and Z stands for an optional sub-entry (not numbered in the book); after the colon is an identifier for a take/version. Thus, readers equipped with that work can easily make cross-references to it and more readily identify the recordings in question. In cases where no individual identifier is given in 8 Arms but the item is discussed in the text, a reference to the song entry under which the recording is mentioned has been supplied.

"LLT program XX-YY" in the source notes refers to transcription disc for program XX-YY of the Lost Lennon Tapes radio series, XX being the year and YY the broadcast week. For bootleg discs sourced from the shows, the broadcast week of the episode has been given in brackets; "tape" means that the bootleg was taken directly a tape source.

NOTES:
* = covered by voice-over. In the file names, ST = single tracked, DT = double tracked, TT = triple tracked.

This set includes all surfaced Lennon home recordings from the 1975-80 period. All of the audio has been carefully remastered and speed corrected from the best available sources, and the tracks have been presented in the order of recording (as far as could be ascertained) -- something which hasn't been attempted previously. For several of the demos, the actual taping order and context of the various versions is revealed for the first time.

If the complete torrented archive consisting of FLACS for 9 discs is burned on a DVD-ROM, the associated artwork can be browsed and the FLACs played from the included HTML documentation, which contains previously unpublished information on the recordings in the track notes.  (The above notes were borrowed from bootcity.)

* Superb set, get it if you can!
* This DVD is simply AWESOME.  The quality of the tracks are great.  I really liked the HTML index that included info and lyrics.  I have a new favorite in my collection.
* Download this gem if You are able to do.  It is an superb labour of love.  A big THANK YOU to the guy that did this just to share it for free
* This set is simply incredible... The songs are in great quality, and the editing (and pitch correction) of the different sources give us the best possible version of all these songs. All the info is greatly appreciated and it is nice and easy to browse through the different parts of the DVD-ROM. A huge thanks to all those involved in this project.
* Essential for any Lennon fan.
* Fantastic. Most recordings are heard before, but this is the best you can get. Most complete and in the right order.
* Don't miss this one.
