Lennon on Geffen Records in Belgium

In August and September 1980 John Lennon recorded his first new album in five years. In 1976 he had not renewed his contract with EMI and therefore was free to choose any company to distribute his new material.

At first John had toyed with the idea of selling the completed master tapes to the highest bidder. After some consideration however, he signed a five-year worldwide contract with David Geffen of Geffen Records, on 22 September 1980.

In Belgium, the Geffen label was distributed by WEA Records. Labels state "made in Belgium" or "made in Holland" but invariably mention the Dutch STEMRA as the copyright company and not SABAM.
