John Lennon fans have a reason to get excited. A new box set is hitting stores on what would’ve been his 78th birthday. “John Lennon: Imagine: The Ultimate Box Set” is a massive collection of mixes and outtakes of Lennon’s iconic album.
Yoko Ono reportedly authorized the six-disc collection of 140 tracks, overseeing the set’s production and creative direction. Fans can expect not only “ultimate mixes,” promising “whole new levels of sonic depth, definition and clarity,” but also “The Evolution Documentary” chronicling the production of each of the album’s classic songs from start to finish.
