Buyer pays £24,000 for previously unheard Lennon recording.
A cassette tape of deceased Beatle John Lennon singing a cover version of Lloyd Price's Just Because has sold for $36,000 (£24,000) at an auction. The six-minute recording was made in 1973 after Lennon left his wife Yoko Ono and moved from New York to Los Angeles.
According to auctioneers Bonhams and Butterfields, the track sees the singer drop the original words and substitute them for "debauched lyrics".
The song features lines such as "I wanna take all them new singers, Carol and the other one with the nipples, I wanna take 'em and hold 'em tight". Other lyrics include "Just a little cocaine will set me right".
Both the seller and the buyer of the tape have remained anonymous.
