Lennon's lost works on CD
Lennon's lost recordings - coming to a shop near you
A box set of John Lennon's 'lost' recordings could soon be coming to a music shop near you.
The American music industry newspaper, Billboard, reports that one hundred previously unheard tracks were found in the vaults of the Capitol Records.
The record company has confirmed that it is planning to release the songs in November in a set of four CDs.
Capitol Records would not say when the tracks were recorded, nor whether they were re-recordings of familiar songs.
Yoko Ono, the singer's widow, is reported to receive a credit as executive producer, and Lennon's son Sean is also mentioned for "creative input".
In 1995 an unfinished home recording of Lennon's 'Free As A Bird' got to No.2 in the UK singles chart when the surviving Beatles laid down tracks to accompany the 1977 recording.
The Beatles Anthology was also released recently and included unfinished material and different versions of the same songs. It also sold very well.
