Out today (April 23rd) is the John Lennon/Plastic Ono Band – The Ultimate Collection deluxe box set. The collection features Lennon's 1970 mainstream solo debut completely remixed from the original multi-tracks. The set features 159 new mixes on six CD's and two Blu-Ray discs in Stereo, 5.1 & Dolby Atmos — plus a 132-page book, along with a poster and postcards.
John Lennon/Plastic Ono Band was originally released on December 11th, 1970 and peaked at Number Six on the Billboard 200 albums chart, spending only four weeks in the Top 10. The album fared better on the Cashbox chart, hitting Number Four — and peaking at Number Two in Record World.
John Lennon/Plastic Ono Band is considered among the most harrowing and personal albums in rock, and marked Lennon's first album of original songs since the Beatles' split earlier that year.
