Notes: Tonight’s session was dedicated to the recording of the song "Imagine". Footage captured John teaching the song to the band and then teaching the piano parts specifically to Nicky Hopkins.
Then it was decided to record the song on the white grand piano which ultimately didn`t sound good enough so they returned to the upright piano in the actual studio for the released version which oddly no footage of has emerged.
