from "the independant":
Two previously unheard tapes of John Lennon telling stories, nursery rhymes and improvising songs are expected to fetch £70,000 at auction.
The 80-minute tapes were recorded in 1969 and 1970 and display for the first time the bond between Lennon and Yoko Ono's daughter, Kyoko.
On one of the tapes, which will be auctioned on Tuesday by Christie's in London, Lennon is heard singing "Oh Yoko" from the 1971 hit album Imagine.
He also joins Yoko for the 1966 chart-topper "Yellow Submarine" and also improvises blues, folk and funk guitar riffs.
Lennon is then heard accompanying Kyoko in an unlikely rendition of Frank Zappa's "Jelly Roll Gum Drop".
He also reveals a previously undocumented talent for penning children's ditties, including a touching one addressed to his own son Julian.
The second tape features Lennon and Kyoko playing the acoustic guitars of Tony Cox, Yoko's ex-husband. Ono and Mr Cox can be heard making occasional interjections.
Tuesday's sale also includes another unheard tape, recorded by Lennon at home in 1966 as he develops the lyrics and melody for "She Said, She Said", from the Beatles' Revolver album, released later that year.
A rare seven-inch acetate, "Don't Worry Kyoko", on the Apple label, recorded by Yoko in Queen Charlotte's Hospital for her daughter in 1968, should fetch up to £12,000, says The Independent.
At the same sale, a pewter tankard and a metal cigarette lighter Lennon gave to his Liverpool flatmate Rod Murray instead of rent money early in 1960 are expected to fetch up to £3,000.
