"It just shows who they were. John with his rock 'n roll button and George just being his beautiful, spiritual self," said Daley. "And that was his mate. He was just being patient and loving him."
Unfortunately for us who reside outside USA, the NBC TV news series about these findings, dubbed "Rock'n'Roll Treasure" is not available for online viewing outside the country. However, Apple Scruffs Radio to the rescue via YouTube!
Daley has stored boxes of memorabilia for decades underneath her bed, in her home two hours east of Los Angeles.
Among the items in her collection are rare polaroids of Paul McCartney playing piano at Lennon’s beach house during their first post-breakup meeting, hand-written lyrics sheets from Lennon’s Walls and Bridges sessions (including "Whatever Gets You Thru the Night") and a copy of an angry letter Lennon wrote to Capitol Records after the release of The Beatles' Rock'n'Roll Music compilation, in which he says the cover of the new album "looks like a Monkees reject" and suggests, instead, photos from the Hamburg days, taken by Astrid Kircher or Jürgen Vollmer. He ended up using a Jürgen Vollmer photo on his own "Rock'n'Roll" album.
The news series has continued after this first show, so let's just hope the other episodes appear in YouTube-incarnations as well.
The great Beatles Photo Blog has a few of Daley's photos here and here.
Update: I was contacted by a representative of NBC News who gave me some further links and I was told that the news clips have now been stripped for some copyrighted music and now will work for viewing outside the USA.
