Funny, I think Yoko’s songs tend to better than John’s on the last two albums, with several exceptions.

I think her songs on New York City are much better than his last two albums.  However, giving Double Fantasy another look, her songs aren’t too terrible with the exception of Kiss Kiss Kiss.  I do really like Hard Times Are Over.  That might be my favorite Yoko song.  However, I don’t like any of her stuff on Milk And Honey .  It’s not very good, especially compared to some of the exceptional John songs on there.  I always imagined the quality of her stuff was worse on M&H than the other two because John wasn’t there to supervise.

She’s done great work on her own over the years. She’s written some masterpieces without John around.

I like the more “new wave” sound of Yoko’s songs on their last two albums together. But I haven’t listened in a while. Some of her songs are misses, most are hits, IMO.

I’ll admit I’m actually not familiar with Yoko’s work beyond the 3 John albums, and the 3 unfinished music albums.  She is on my list of discographies to binge, but I just haven’t got around to it.

Somewhere on the forum I posted a bunch of YouTube links to my favorite Yoko songs. Probably in the Yoko’s music thread.

I started listening to Intuition this afternoon (one of my absolute favourites) and then ended up listening to the whole album. Mind Games is a solid opener. Out The Blue and You Are Here speak for themselves, as far as I am concerned. 

Only People is a continuation of his Power To The People message. It’s often overlooked but nonetheless catchy and still a good song. Freeda People, with a political message, is similar, and builds into a satisfying release. I would’ve used the Anthology version of One Day At A Time, which I think is vastly superior and one of John’s best vocals. But apart from that, it’s all pretty great.

Mind Games is my favourite of John’s solo albums. It’s certainly the most light-hearted, coming after his two serious statements in Plastic Ono Band and Imagine , and before the “lost weekend” chronicle which is Walls And Bridges .

Presumably it will follow the format of the previous albums and have demos, raw mixes, elements, evolutions, ultimate mixes and other outtakes and then the Blu_Rays with 5.1, Atmos etc. Maybe they will put the Yoko album which was recorded around the same time on one of the Blu_Rays (‘Feeling The Space’) – tho looking at it’s Wiki entry John is hardly on that album so they won’t.

The ‘Mind Games ‘ tracks are far better in their underpolished guises, same goes for ‘WAB’, so should be a very enjoyable release.

These outtakes are going to be awesome. More Nicky Hopkins for us to enjoy. I agree with mmm that the raw forms of the songs on Mind Games and Walls And Bridges are superior. Both have really strong tracklists but the production doesn’t quite do them justice, with the exception of Old Dirt Road on WAB. I love how wet that song is produced, the creamy envelope guitar tone is straight out of a dream.

Looks good as the released album I find to be far too overproduced and just a-hard-days-night-paul-3 so will be great to hear the outtakes and everything (hopefully) nicer. I hate how both ‘One Day (At A Time)’ and ‘I Know (I Know) ‘ turned out officially. Great songs unlistenable and unbearable in their finished state. 

‘I’m The Greatest’ (included on the ‘Record Store’ EP) is missing from here but there are reports of Easter Eggs on the DVD’s/Blu-rays so could be on there with who knows what else (and no doubt it will eventually circulate online regardless for anyone who wants to hear it).

 

Oh, and if anyone has a spare £1,350 you can purchase the super deluxe box set (and I thought a £200 White Album pen in 1998 was taking the piss). Sadly you can only buy one tho. I swear these sets are getting more stupid and expensive with each release. 

It includes:

YOKO ONO DANGER BOX, 1966
Limited Edition Artwork Reproduction. A 13-inch cube perspex reproduction of Yoko Ono’s 1966 artwork with engraved plates and Certificate of Authenticity, housing the nine boxes that comprise the set.

Limited Edition Canvas Artwork Reproduction. A 12-inch circular canvas reproduction of John Lennon ’s 1968 artwork with Certificate of Authenticity.

MIND GAMES – THE ULTIMATE COLLECTION – STANDARD DELUXE BOX SET

6 CDs, 2 Blu-Rays, 136pp Hardback 10” Book, Poster, Postcards, Nutopian Citizen ID Card.

MIND GAMES – THE ULTIMATE COLLECTION – 7x LP BOX
4 x Gatefold LPs comprising 12 Tracks each of The Ultimate Mixes, Elemental Mixes, Elements Mixes, Evolution Documentary, Out-takes and Raw Studio Mixes with 8-Page Booklet, 7 Bespoke Inner Sleeves, 2 Posters and 2 Postcards.

It’s alternate mixes, you can hear the silence differently. They will sound far better in $500 headphones.

I gotta say its kind of insane to have the official Nutopian ID card as a part of a 1000$ box set. That kind of over the top consumerism seems to go against what Nutopia was meant to be. I just want a You Are Here shirt and a digital download of the deluxe release but maybe I’m the only one.

x-posted to the Visiting Liverpool Beatles Places thread.

This looks like fun.

A GAME OF THE MIND
On 6th July, 2024, to celebrate the upcoming release of JOHN LENNON MIND GAMES (The Ultimate Collection), Universal Music Group and The John Lennon Estate invite fans to come to Liverpool and take part in a Treasure Hunt across JOHN LENNON’S LIVERPOOL.

The Treasure Hunt is a fun, family-friendly day which will give fans a unique experience in John’s home town, beginning at 9am on 6th July at Liverpool Town Hall (High Street, Liverpool L2 3SW).

Using the unique map of JOHN LENNON’S LIVERPOOL created by fine artist Ed Fairburn, locations (to be revealed on the day) across the city with a special relationship to John will have hidden QR codes, to be scanned by fans using their phone camera.

Maps will be available at Liverpool Town Hall from 9am on the day.

Get ready by signing up at citizenofnutopia.com.

Everyone who takes part in this event will get a chance to win a prize depending on how many locations they capture – and the first person to scan the QR codes at every location will win the grand prize of a Super Deluxe MIND GAMES (The Ultimate Collection) Box Set worth £1,350.

More details and the rules for taking part will be released on johnlennon.com in the coming weeks, so make sure to follow John Lennon (on X / Instagram / Facebook) for further information. We can’t wait to see you in Liverpool!

The event is presented by Universal Music Group and the John Lennon Estate in association with Red And Grey Creative.

Indeed, the whole thing seems ridiculous, especially since “Mind Games ” is such an unexceptional, derivative album in the first place. “Two Minutes Silence” (from “Life With The Lions “) already fulfilled “Nutopian National Anthem”‘s basic conceit, also, for a more substantial length of time too. And finally, none of us should need some silly little card or any kinda piece of paper from John or Yoko or even Sean to give us “permission” to become imaginary citizens of the conceptual imagine-nation of Nutopia – in fact, I daresay that I am already in fact one of its conceptual citizens, damn it!

And so are all of you, if you want it. a-hard-days-night-john-1two-virginsyoko-ono_01

In conclusion, I’m gonna offer Apple an imaginary $1350.00 (CDN) for an imaginary copy of the deluxe box, and not an imaginary penny more
