In case you didn’t get your fill of vinyl during last weekend’s Record Store Day, summer 2015 has a major new release in store that will no doubt whet the appetites of any and all vinyl fanatics, particularly those who are also Beatles obsessives. This June, the studio discography of John Lennon will be compiled in a luxurious box set, simply entitled Lennon. All of these records, with the exception of Imagine and Rock ‘n’ Roll, are at the moment out of print on vinyl.
The remasters of these albums, arranged by Yoko Ono, derive from original mixes by John Lennon. The authenticity to the original LP releases is furthered by the vinyl packaging itself: each record is re-produced to the specifications of their original UK vinyl editions.
Watch a trailer for Lennon:
The Lennon box set is out on 9 June via Capitol/UMe. Each LP in the set will be released individually later in the summer on 21 August.
