I'm afraid I don't follow you.  Why would there be plenty of old footage of
John available?  And what Beatles "voiceovers" are you referring to?

Yep.  That's what I'd want.

Exactly.  But, is there really enough unreleased footage out there for *three*
DVDs?  *Three?*  Or, will we get "Pinball Wizard" & "See Me, Feel Me"
from Woodstock yet again?  (A' la the Who's Better Who's Best video.)

Yeah, wouldn't that be the most exciting stuff?  Maybe they're saving that
for the release *after* this upcoming one!  The "Early Years" DVD set!  
Look for that in 2009!
