John Lennon and Miles Davis playing Basketball with Andy Warhol taking pictures

Oh, boy, we got Jonas Mekas‘ film “Happy Birthday To John” here, including footage from John & Yoko’s ’72 exhibition at Syracuse, John’s b’day party on the same day & the “One To One” concert at MSG. Party guests include Ringo Starr, Phil Spector, Allen Ginsberg, Miles Davis and Andy Warhol. The other party footage was shot at Allen Klein’s house. Note that the final sequence was shot during the 10 min silence following John’s death.
This is a great view for anyone who wants to see what John was like away from the studio. All audio is taken from John’s 31st birthday party although the dates of the video vary.
