John Lennon Imagine Box Set Coming In October

A new box set of John Lennon‘s Imagine, will be released in October. John Lennon: Imagine: The Ultimate Box Set will be released on what would have been Lennon’s 78th birthday on October 9.

Variety reports that Yoko Ono authorized the six-disc, 140-track collection and oversaw its production and creative direction.

John Lennon: Imagine: The Ultimate Box Set contains four CDs and two Blu-ray discs, including an extensive collection of mixes of Imagine. There are “Ultimate Mixes,” which promise “whole new levels of sonic depth, definition and clarity to these timeless songs” (according to the set’s press release), as well as 5.1 surround sound mixes, raw studio mixes and, for the first time since the ’70s, a four-speaker “Quadrasonic Album Mix,” which recreates the quadraphonic sound that was briefly in vogue in that decade.

The set also features a host of outtakes, rarities and isolated track elements (the separate pieces that were edited together into the produced version of the album’s songs). The box also contains “The Evolution Documentary,” an “audio montage” that follows each song on the record from demo to finished product.
