I seem to remember reading that around 2000 or so the John Lennon catalogue was remixed.  Does anyone know if these were released separately or as part of a box set?

The 2010 "signature box" is the original mixes, remastered...and this is the version I own.

Does anyone have more info about these remixed albums, or an opinion as to the sound?

They were issued separately - and for easy distinction are the editions with the bonus tracks.

I think they are in the plastic CD cases, the most recent in the cardboard so to match the 2009 Beatles remasters; Paul following suit with the Archive Collection.

I believe that it's a little bit cheaper for them to come in cardboard. 

I'm Necko.  I'm like Ringo except I wear necklaces.

I'm also ewe2 on weekends.

Isnt it also more economically beneficial, i'm sure that's another reason for their adoption.

After checking my collection i can confirm i have the 2000 re mixes of "plastic ono band" and "imagine". The sound is a lot louder (noise reductioned too) than the 70s mixes but their is a lot more clarity in the vocals which is particularly nice on the former. Ono supervised the mixes and i actually think she did a great job. The strings on "how do you sleep" sound as malevolent as fuck.

As far as i know they were only released individually,some of them have bonus tracks. "plastic ono band" has "do the oz/Power To The People " rather oddly for instance as it doesn't fit the chronology. Booklets are much better than the previous CDs though.
