Dear John (A John Lennon Tribute)

by Pamela Davis

Dear John is a loving tribute by Pamela Davis to John Lennon’s 1976-80 lost Dakota demos. Lennon never got to professionally record those tunes, so Pamela decided to turn his demos into a full rock band production. Now, the listener can hear these twelve tracks as they might have sounded, had John Lennon lived.

ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
Recording artist Pamela Davis has released her latest album, 'Dear John', which is a John Lennon tribute compilation. It features twelve songs Lennon never got the chance to professionally record. Pamela Davis has been a big fan of John Lennon, and always wished she could hear those songs done professionally with a rock band. With this project, she has tried to keep those songs as close as possible to what Lennon had recorded, with the same key, tempo, and feel. Ms Davis focused on the production used from 1968 (The White Album) through his last sessions in 1980 (Double Fantasy). Each different production era was applied carefully on each song. Pamela stated “If you listen very carefully to John’s demos, one can imagine what he may have wanted on each song, and I used my intuition to, hopefully, honor John Lennon’s lost Dakota tapes era”.
Lennon had taken five years off from the music scene to devote to his newborn son Sean, all the while composing and making demos of newly written songs. None of those songs were recorded on professional equipment. Nevertheless, we are fortunate enough to have them. Some were composed on piano while others were recorded on guitar, and occasionally with double tracked vocals.
Pamela Davis is a multi-instrumentalist who played all the instruments, including guitar, piano, bass, drums, all string and horn arrangements, plus lead and harmony vocal parts.
This is Pamela Davis's fifteenth album. She is known for her rock albums, and also for instrumental world music and relaxation compilations. Her three world music albums, including 'Welcome To Tranzotica', reached number one in a dozen countries on iTunes and was a best seller. Ms Davis played all the exotic instruments on each release.
Listening to ’Dear John’ will showcase what a great songwriter John Lennon truly was. Ms Davis has truly breathed new life into these lost gems.
