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.)
