Friend Jamie Bryan turned me on to these unedited interviews from the upcoming “American Masters” program, “LENNONYC.” I haven’t listened to them all, but I just finished this one with Double Fantasy producer Jack Douglas, whom we have featured previously on Dullblog.

It’s spellbinding, especially beginning at around the 41:00 mark, where Douglas talks about the plans that John and Paul had to perform on Ringo’s 1981 album. Douglas believes that would’ve become a full-fledged Beatles reunion, and given the context he provides, it’s difficult to argue. (By the way, the first 4:45 is low-key hype from the people behind the show—pleasant enough, keep listening. You won’t be disappointed.)

    I was wondering if you were going to cover this. I’ve enjoyed them quite a bit. I wish the interviewers would speak up, it’s hard to hear their questions.

    I’m looking forward to the May Peng and Yoko interviews. The producers are definite Yoko fans, but they’re including May so who knows?

  2. I’ve listened to Bob Gruen, Jack Douglas and Earl Slick already. Audio imbalance apart, these are superb – you really feel these people feeling the loss of a colleague and friend. Full credit to the sensitive and intelligent interviewer.
