Imagine (Remastered) - John Lennon

The follow-up to the musically challenging John Lennon/Plastic Ono Band was a critical and commercial success, and was Lennon’s peak as a solo artist.

Imagine was issued in the United Kingdom on 8 October 1971. It topped the charts on both sides of the Atlantic.

It was also the first Apple album release in quadrophonic, a four-channel system which was an early form of surround sound. The format was issued on LP and eight-track cartridge.
