Farrington DOUBLE FANTASY RECORDING SESSION & PHOTOGRAPHER HISTORY: August 7th 1980, Boston based photographer Roger Farrington got the job as the first authorized photographer to document the first day of the recording session for what would be Lennon & Onos final album together, Double Fantasy.The Manhattan recording sessions were kept secret in case John had a change of heart. Yoko sought a freelance photographer with no ties to the New York media scene. Farrington met Lennon & Ono at their home at The Dakota at Central Park West & later followed them to the Hit Factory on 48th Street. Lennon was dressed in black, wearing a Western-style shirt, wide brimmed hat & happily singing. John carried a briefcase filled with sheet music.
He was energized, witty & with his long hair he looked every bit a rock star. Ono, attended to the business matters, as they did everything themselves with no managers or handlers. Farrington's photographs from the Hit Factory show Lennon looking obviously pleased to be back in the studio. On that first day, Lennon had recorded the album's first single Just Like Starting Over. The album sessions wrapped up on Sept.
