This riveting interview with Jay Bergen, John Lennon's attorney in the Roots trial against mobster Morris Levy, is a true one-of-a-kind. Bergen discusses John, the man, John, the creative artist, and John, the superb witness. During the court proceedings, John was asked to discuss how he arranged songs in order on his LPs, why he valued the songs on his Rock'n'Roll LP that had been stolen by Levy to create the Roots bootleg, and what his creative process involved. This is testimony that reveals so much about Lennon...things you've never heard before. Bergen is brilliant, articulate, and entertaining. Hosts Lanea Stagg of The Recipe Records Series and Jude Southerland Kessler of The John Lennon Series enjoy a lively chat with this wonderful guest.
