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.

JOHN LENNON YOU ARE HERE, 1968

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.

I’ve ordered the deluxe box set but will never have run out of other things to buy to make me consider purchasing the uber-duber delux with official ‘Mind Games ‘ numb chucks set.

Got the deluxe set coming in the mail. I kind of resent having to make room for a large plastic cube that costs over a hundred dollars, though.

I’m beginning to have to get rid of Beatles things to make room for Beatles things.

It’s out!!!

I’m quite excited by this as it’s new John music and I’ve always preferred the album stripped down thru the outtakes.

Which reminds me that ‘One Hand Clapping’ is out there.

Oh good, I got mine and it’s not a big plastic cube. I guess that’s only the super expensive one.

It looks like there are hidden bonus tracks on  each disc that you have to find.

Yeah. There are additional tracks on the DVDS and Blu_Rays with the details of how to find them around the internet.

Connected to the Ultimate ‘Mind Games ‘ release there is a massive ‘John Lennon ‘s Liverpool’ map available to buy from the official store (it’s also in the uber-deluxe box set). It looks so good it’s the first piece of this kind of thing I have bought in a good while. I like the idea of framing it.

Exclusively designed by fine artist Ed Fairburn, this forty-six-inch square map artwork contains 550 individually numbered locations highlighted in ultra-violet ink. Available folded in a wallet with an accompanying booklet that details all the historical stories behind all the individual locations in John Lennon ’s Liverpool, perfect for exploring the city and for framing.

There is also a video on the map and how it was created by Ed Fairburn.
