INYIM Media "Back To The Future" Edition: Never Seen Demo Of John Lennon & Yoko Ono Performing ‘Give Peace A Chance’ Sneak Peek For 50th Anniversary Box Set, 'The Ultimate Collection.' (April 23)

"Nearly 50 years after John Lennon and Yoko Ono recorded “Give Peace A Chance” at their Bed-In for Peace at the Queen Elizabeth Hotel in Montreal on May 31, 1969, a new demo has arrived showing a glimpse of how that legendary moment came to be.

Released and restored by the John Lennon Estate, the unearthed video shows the artists side-by-side in another bed, at the Sheraton Oceanus Hotel in the Bahamas, just days before the real thing, on May 25th 1969. It’s a playfully unvarnished version of the Lennons test-driving the anti-war anthem. Here, they genuinely seem at peace.

Lennon mumbles unintelligibly (“Everybody’s talking about revolution, masturbation, hasturbation, constipation … uh … rasturbation, cake, chocolate cake … uh… fake, cake, glasses, passes”) while Ono shoots him looks as if to say, “where are you going with this?”

The demo video was taken by Lennon’s film cameraman Nic Knowland and sound recordist Mike Lax. It’s now officially the earliest-known recording of the Vietnam-era protest anthem, “Give Peace A Chance.”

The release is part of a massive new box set commemorating the 50th anniversary of the famous Bed-In for Peace. The John Lennon/Plastic Ono Band – The Ultimate Collection, is due April 23 via Capitol/UMe. The box set features a number of unreleased and rare demos, rehearsals, outtakes, jams, and studio conversations taken from the 1970 recording sessions at EMI Studios 2 & 3, Abbey Road, as well as with John’s post-Beatles singles, “Give Peace A Chance,” “Cold Turkey,” and “Instant Karma! (We All Shine On).”
