Since hitting the ground running in 2007, His Masters Choice have been the best source for John Lennon outtakes since the untimely demise of American bootlegger Vigotone in 2001. They have thus far released 4 hard-backed, 2 CD collections and at least 1 vinyl LP in to the hands of the fortunate collectors. Whereas Vigotone, in their earlier incarnations had used tracks from Westwood One’s “Lost Lennon Tapes” recorded from the radio, then later used transcription disks & finally were able to secure rare cassette & acetate sources, HMC have generally used very high quality studio recordings for their releases, often spanning the full session for a certain track from John’s studio albums or home demos from John’s lost five years at home as he took retirement from recording or playing live.

Following the path taken by their first release “Oddities” scoops up what they have spare & presents them all within the Gazette format that was first issued last year. This isn’t a scraping of the barrel affair, far from it, despite the fact that we get to hear some new upgrades and longer takes than heard on the “Anthology” series, we also herald the premier of several new to bootleg takes that have never been heard before.
