    I was answering a direct question regarding Yoko sessions. "Don't Worry Kyoko". (And of course session for "Cold Turkey" will be also on this set).

    Speaking of that, what WILL the next Ultimate Collection be? My guess is Double Fantasy
    Will it get here this fall?
    Will Yoko be on it?

    True, I would hope for no trolls on SHF

    Double Fantasy has had so many reissues including the recent "stripped down" version....I would hope that is the book end and the last of the "ultimate mixes box sets". Next year they could do SINYC and I would be fine with that.

    Mike can you talk about the layout/packaging at all? I am assuming it will mimic the Imagine and Gimme Some Truth boxes?

    I think it's very likely that the next set will be Double Fantasy[/Milk & Honey].

    I wouldn't imagine [no pun intended] the next Lennon box would arrive before 2022. Go on, prove me wrong! :)

    Personally, I'd rather see Walls And Bridges, but commercially I would say DF is the next most likely choice.

    Didn't Imagine have enough re-issues before the "Ultimate" version came out as well?

    I'd love it if the next one was SINYC, i think it's a hugely under-rated album. I can understand people's dislike of the second disc (although I like it) but there's some great songs on the first disc (both John and Yoko's).

    I’m not aware of any more reissues than any other canonical albums, other than Stripped Down. I think it will probably be next, I certainly hope so. There’s a wealth of material that hasn’t been officially released yet. Certainly, I’d love to see it while Yoko is still with us. I’d actually have picked that to come out before POB, mainly for that reason.
    I’d have no problem with whatever they decide, including STINYC. But I think DF can be the best of the lot. hands down.

    Yes, they all have many releases. Imagine definitely more than the others. I’m kinda “meh” on that album now, for that reason. Not to take away from its greatness.
    I’m a huge fan of Walls And Bridges too, such a great album. So many possibilities on what could be included on that set. Or any Lennon set!

    I personally have zero interest in Double Fantasy in any edition, format, or reissue.

    The recent Gimme Some Truth compilation shows that there’s huge potential for “ultimate mixes” to make the best case for STINYC, Mind Games, and Walls & Bridges. I didn’t really care for the remix of “Whatever Gets You Through the Night” on that comp, but I thought all of the other material from those three albums sounded great in the new mixes, and, in particular, “Angela” sounded great.

    I would also love it if the next Ultimate Edition were STINYC. Also 99% sure that an Ultimate Edition of STINYC would prompt a spate of “this is actually far better than its reputation” reassessments.

    Gee guys I'm not so sure about STINYC. The single is problematic, to say the least. Yes I know it's a Yoko quote, and that it's a feminist anthem, but there is no amount of explaining that is going to make that ok. Maybe there's a deluxe edition "John & Yoko NYC" that could be assembled with cherry picked tracks from the album and a redo of the One To One concert

    I agree that, in this day and age, the single is problematic. Which is why it’s been cut from most compilations since Shaved Fish, and why it didn’t feature on even the 4-LP edition of Gimme Some Truth, I’m sure.

    On the other hand, in this day and age, the rest of the LP might fit right in with the zeitgeist of many young people and the causes they’re into. I wouldn’t be surprised if STINYC gets skipped over and swept under the carpet because of fear of backlash against the title track, but I hope it does get an Ultimate Edition. If not, no one’s coming to my house to take away my original LP.

    The solution would be to not release it in the USA.

    They could just do what Disney+ have done with the old episodes of The Muppets that they have just added and give a warning about anything that might cause offence etc.

    At least some copies of the original LP had a sticker on the shrink placed over the picture of the nude dancers, I think. Today, they could put a sticker on the shrink over the title of Woman Is The Blank of the World. But I wouldn’t be surprised if they simply wash their hands of the potential controversy here and skip over the album entirely.

    She recorded several jams between John and friends so I’d hope so. ;)

    I’m in for every Lennon Ultimate Collection release, no matter what is or isn’t included.

    I think it will come out in time, along with the rest of them. I wouldn’t think it will be high on the list, as the album has always been a dud, sales wise. It’s an acquired listen, and I think they’ll go with the more commercial albums first. But I think when the time comes, we’ll see it in its full glory. I’d certainly hope so. Maybe put a disclaimer on it and send it out.
    Then again, if the One To One concerts were to be included, you never know. It may come out sooner. It would certainly move up a few spots on my wish list.

    Will there be Ultimate Mixes of Yoko's first 3 b-sides included as well, or just the outtakes?
