Wienerworld and MVD Visual are proud to announce the DVD release of John Lennon “Rare and Unseen” on May 18, 2010. (Released February 22 in the UK)
The next title of the “Rare and Unseen” series takes an inside look at the rock musician, singer-songwriter, author and peace activist who made it as one of the world’s most successful solo artists after his departure from the Beatles in 1969: John Lennon.
From his musical and songwriting input with the Beatles (especially his partnership with McCartney) to his astronomical solo career, Lennon has written some of the most popular music in rock and roll history. After the Beatles, Lennon enjoyed a successful solo career with such acclaimed albums as John Lennon/Plastic Ono Band and Imagine and iconic songs such as “Give Peace a Chance” and “Imagine”. His final album, Double Fantasy, was released less than a month before his death.
This brand new DVD release is a collection of rare footage featuring original rare film and videos of the singer, newsreels and photographs from private collections.
