"Somewhere in Dakota" (las canciones inéditas de John Lennon)

Between 1975-1980, John Lennon stayed away from musical world and recording studios. He preferred being houseband and father, but it didn't prevent him from composing, and recording his new songs in his living-room at his apartment, in the Dakota Building.

That impressive building, located in the upper-west side in Manhattan witnessed the process of many songs that John Lennon never recorded in a studio, or finished in some cases.

SOMEWHERE IN DAKOTA is a tribute to those years, and it compiles 12 fresh and original John Lennon songs, completed, arranged and recorded like John could have done it he published them for a solo album.


1.- Help me to help myself

2.- Real life

3.- A friend of Dorothy

4.- Solitude

5.- You saved my soul

6.- Grow old with me (A wedding song)

7.- Serve yourself

8.- Sally and Billy

9.- One of the boys

10.- Now and then

11.- India

12.- Dear John

Octavio Cavalli: All instruments and Vocals

Recorded in Rex Studio between April and December 2010 (Buenos Aires, Argentina)

I've tried the download link several times the past few days, but it always is "temporarily not available". Please reload the tracks, as the youtube preview sounds so great. I'd have loved to listen to these tracks on December 8th...

Thank you for creating such wonderful variations and inventions. You obviously take such care to make every element so harmonious and euphonic.

Hi. I'm from Detroit Michigan and I just want to tell you that I love your work as well. I downloaded the Now and Then album a couple years ago and I'm downloading the Somewhere in Dakota right now. You are doing something worthwhile. There are so many of us Beatles fans who still wonder "what if" and you are making the "what if" happen. Thank you so much and keep it up.

I LOVE the album.
But just so you know, the word is 'househusband', not 'houseband'.
A houseband would be like The CBS Orchestra.
