    Ugh. Was hoping for Mind Games. I’ll take a pass on this, my least favorite Lennon album.

    • Brian from Canada says:

      They’re likely working chronologically to meet the 50th anniversary copyright extensions. Mind Games will be 2023, Walls & Bridges 2024 and Rock and Roll in 2025. The Harrisons have also said Concert for Bangladesh is next, and they are already working on a Dark Horse set too.

        …and Macca celebrates his albums 50th with half speed mastered limited edition LPs. Wild Life is belated due in February, probably delayed by The Beatles’ releases.

          According to the JL official site above … Seems this album is being released on both Vinyl and CD … and Ships week of April 1, 2022 but doesnt really say if it’s been remixed as part of a “Ulitmate Mix Editions” the site you linked above doesnt give any info either are you just assuming this released will be re-mixed based of the “Gimme Some Truth” compllation released last year?

          • admin says:

            The Lennon catalogue is in the process of being remixed, aside from the compilation “Gimme Some Truth”, the first two albums, “Imagine” and “Plastic Ono Band” have both been “Ultimately” remixed and released. “Some Time in New York City” is next in line. Expect announcement shortly.

        What about Living In The Material World ?

      • Reed Pitkunigis says:

        That certainly makes sense regarding the copyright extensions. Let’s hope Ringo gives the “Ringo” album the deluxe treatment (with the long rumored Quad mix) in 2023. Any word on that yet???

        • nateboy2 says:

          That would be a worthwhile box set. I hope that one appears, along with a Goodnight Vienna one in 2024. I hope I live long enough to buy all of these future releases.

  2. John Kaelin says:

    I am looking forward to it. 50th anniversary set. Interesting items on here and they need a good re-examination.

  3. Danny Jones says:

    I really like this album – i like rough and ready stuff – and the spontaneity of some of the performances. I can understand some of the criticisms but im looking forward to the deluxe box treatment.

    • Rick says:

      It may not be one of John’s most popular albums but most of the songs are very thought provoking. Especially WITNOTW. And is that Keith Moon in the second row? If so I didn’t realize he was on it and I had it when it 1st came out all those years ago

      • kozmo says:

        That’s Moonie, alright. I see Clapton, Beatle George obviously, and a few other very familiar faces but can’t always place names to them. Could someone step up and provide IDs for all?

        • kozmo says:

          Oh, and Billy Preston, duh!

          • Juan says:

            Left to right, too to bottom.

            Jim Price, Bobby Keys, Jim Gordon, Klaus Voorman, Bonnie and Delaney Bramlett.

            George Harrison, Alan White, Keith Moon, Neil Boland, Keith Robertson, Billy Preston, Eric Clapton.

            Larry ‘Legs’ Smith, John Lennon, Yoko Ono.

            All this according to Plastic Ono Band book that came out in 2021

    • Nicholas R Hilton says:

      Agreed Danny..it is the rawness of it all that I like…i think a deluxe set would have some overlooked gems on it

  4. nateboy2 says:

    I wouldn’t mind hearing an outtake or two of WITNOTW. But, I may just buy the single disc version of Sometime In New York City and buy a couple mp3 files of outtakes. That’s what I ended up doing with Plastic Ono Band… assuming there are outtakes released. I’m just glad to see that there appears to be a 50th anniversary pattern for Lennon releases. I’m all in for a Rock And Roll box set in 2025. Sign me up for that one. Also, no question I’m buying the Double Fantasy box set in 2030.

  5. Rick says:

    The article says a website has been set up but when you click on that link all you see is a screen that says ‘Sometime In New Your City” ect. so where is the website or is that it?

  6. David Fisher says:

    Terrtific – one of my fave Lennon albums. So passionate. Yoko’s live DWYMOLFHHITS would be on my top ten Desert island discs – an awesome juggernaut of a performance. Doesn’t look like its going to be a box set from the title which would be a pity because there’s so much material to draw from. We still need the excellent Elephant’s Memory Apple LP on CD.

  7. kozmo says:

    Juan — many thanks for the photo ID’s! Appreciate that!

  8. John Kaelin says:

    The website is gone and it takes you to John’s official website overview of the album.

  9. Jim W. says:

    I’m more interested in the concert..I hope it can be made into something better than what we have 😊
