Notes: Another odd bit of film. John was approached by a local New York film maker who was putting together a film project reportedly called "The Irish Tapes".
John promptly wrote a new song to perform for the black and white video camera. So we get to see John rehearsing the song "Luck of The Irish" with Yoko while sitting on their bed.
The quality of this uniquely fascinating film is unfortunately very bad having been recorded on an ancient video recorder with assumingly average camera equipment with little if no lighting.
The film itself has the onscreen title of "Luck of The Irish" so it`s not 100% what the official title of this film project actually is.
