John Lennon’s “Imagine”: Deluxe Edition Details

Unbelievably, but it’s been 20 years since John Lennon’s “Anthology” box set saw the light of day and showed how previously unreleased content can be packaged to provide an immersive, arresting experience. And now, on October 5th, the same experience will get wrapped around “Imagine” – the ex-Beatle’s most glorified solo effort – that’s to be out in a variety of formats: a single CD, 2CD and 2LP expanded editions and a deluxe 6-disc box, all of this accompanied by – available separately but also overseen by Yoko Ono – book on the album’s creation, and a DVD/Blu-ray combining the restored “Imagine” and “Gimme Some Truth” films.

The deluxe box set is to include, alongside the album, not only various outtakes and versions but also audio montages tracking the development of every song. All in all, the primary editions will look like this:
