John Lennon's infamous 1972 double album set Some Time In New York City will be the next archival release sporting updated “Ultimate Mixes.” The set, which has no release date, follows recent deluxe box sets of 1970's John Lennon/Plastic Ono Band and 1971's Imagine. A new website featuring the album's title and info has been uploaded without any other content: http://sometimeinnyc.com/
Some Time In New York City was the first original mainstream rock album by Lennon and wife Yoko Ono — and the first to feature the pair singing and writing together and alternating vocals. For the album, the pair was backed by local New York City rockers, Elephant's Memory — with Phil Spector co-producing the set with John & Yoko.
The double album was released on June 14th, 1972 and panned upon release — coming only months after the universal acclaim of the Imagine album. The couple was blasted for topical and overtly radical songs spotlighting racism, sexism, the plight of the prisoners in the America prison system, Northern Ireland, and others.
