JohnTube, in 1980…~TS
John recorded a demo of Dear Yoko at his home on Long Island’s Cold Spring Harbor in the spring of 1980, performed directly into a video camera. He taped the song again on June 1980 while holidaying in Bermuda.
The song was recorded at the Hit Factory studio in New York on 14 August 1980, in just six takes. The first of these was included in the 1998 box set John Lennon Anthology.
