Yeah, I hear ya. But there are still dozens of complete songs that haven't come out officially. And it would be hard to believe that the bootleggers had access to every song that Yoko didn't put out. Regardless of whether this is Lennon, I have to assume there are Lennon songs (in one state or another) still in the Dakota somewhere. The reverb is suspect. The voice isn't a 100% dead ringer, but it sounds more like Lennon than just about anyone else I've heard. Sounds like a guy with a Scouse accent too. Sounds more like him than Julian. The distortion isn't unexpected. He has other demos with that type of distortion. The sound of the guitar and the playing style sound like Lennon in 73-74. It may not be him though. In fact, I'm obliged to not believe this is a real John Lennon recording for all the reasons you mention. Until someone who knows can verify it, then it isn't real. The disabled comments are suspect as well. I don't think it's a cheap imitation though. The person who made this did his homework.
