The film quality is often blurred and jumpy, and many feature the famous rumpled bed. Practically all of them include Yoko Ono, and it would appear from this footage an almost obsessive relationship one of need as well as love; many of the videos include their son Sean as well

Track list
1: "Give Peace a Chance" ~ the rumpled bed with John and Yoko, and friends like "acid guru" Timothy Leary, Hare Krishna folks, and the unlikely appearance of Petula Clark amid the mayhem.
2: "Cold Turkey" ~ about John's attempt at kicking the heroin habit.
3: "Instant Karma" ~ lipsynched at the "Top of the Pops" TV program (a U.K. version of "American Bandstand"), while a blindfolded Yoko is doing some sort of performance with flashcards.
4: "Power to the People" ~ includes images from the Tiananmen Square uprising, which seems very out of place, since it happened 9 years after Lennon's death.

John Lennon fans will appreciate this collection compiled in 1992 because it has much "home movie" type footage, as well as short audio clips from a BBC interview; for those of us who are just casual listeners, it is a mixed bag musically, and of not much interest visually, except as a time capsule of some turbulent times those of us in Lennon's generation lived through, and some of the videos could be shown as examples of "this is why we must not do drugs" in substance abuse seminars.
