"Good Morning Good Morning" demo

During the time period of January 1967 it was common for John Lennon and Ringo Starr to get together and fart around with Lennon's recording and musical equipment at John's house "Kenwood" simply to amuse themselves.
It was during a time like this that a demo tape of one of the upcoming songs for the new LP - at the time untitled - was produced by John Lennon at his home.
John sits at his mellotron and plays the (now) familiar tune "Good Morning Good Morning" with lyrics and melody all intact.
Two verses are sung along with one line of the chorus: "Good Morning" and the first middle eight section. The timing of the song is slightly different than what would be arranged for the final version appearing on the "Pepper" LP.
The demo version of the song can be found on bootleg vinyl as "The Lost Lennon Tapes Volume Four" taken from the popular radio show and also on the bootleg CD "The Lost Pepperland Reel".
Here's a listing for it from youtube. Enjoy !!
