songs heard on these recordings include: Rock Island Line, Midnight Special, Wake Up Little Susie, Railroad Bill, Everyday, Maybe Baby (all with Paul Simon), Let the Good Times Roll, Send Me Some Loving, Baby I Want to Play House, Stand By Me, Give Me Head (improv), Alright Alright, You Can't Catch Me, That's Alright Mama, Well Alright (jam), Do You Wanna Dance, Dance All Night, Can't Get It Right (jam), We're Having a Party, Keep Your Hands Off My Baby, Stand By Me, Groupie Talk, Goodnight Baby, Johnny B. Goode, Slippin' n' Slidin', Whole Lotta Shakin', Mean Woman Blues, Be Bop a Lula, I Couldn't Sleep at All, Stand on My Face (improv). Some snippets of funny conversation and talk about the music can also be heard throughout. Included are two CD transfers of these reel-to-reel tapes plus one CD of highlights from it.

Sounds like it might be from the same sessions as last years auctioned version of John singing Stand by me, while intoxicated.

Intoxicated or not, I would like very much to listen to them. It's always so good to listen to John(and the others) singing the early Rock'n'Roll stuff. Thanks for posting!

Awesome! I would love for Paul, Ringo and Jeff Lynne to go into the studio and finish these up. It will never happen, but as a Beatlefan I can dream!

I have the rare Album called two Pussycats with John Lennon and Harry Nilson it has many rivers to cross on it. A pretty good album and a good combination.
