"It was quite something to watch all the stuff," says Yoko Ono of combing through archival footage for the new Lennon Legend -- The Very Best of John Lennon DVD. "It was quite difficult, actually."
The disc -- a companion piece to the 1998 CD of the same name -- features twenty music videos full of previously unseen film. In the clip for "Mind Games," the former Beatles member is seen signing autographs in New York's Central Park, and in "Nobody Told Me," Lennon and Ono hang out with Fred Astaire and Miles Davis.
"Instead of just making an MTV kind of thing," says Ono, "we carefully considered what John would have wanted to express. Because he was so artistically inclined and so finicky, I think that we tried even harder to make sure it's something he'd be proud of."
