Imagine is a album I got bored to death with when it was first released within a month or two.

Everyone was playing it to death .

Ive got enough original copies  and the Lennon vinyl boxset version.

Im not interested enough in the out takes and other stuff to buy it.

That's a shame because the outtakes add another dimension to this album. You might have become bored with it even though it is a stunning album but for me that will never be the case even after all these years, it is as fresh and influential as the day it was released.

Coincidently, I picked up the BluRay disc of Imagine/Gimme Some Truth a few days ago.

The 5.1 surround mix is superb, and the movies are very entertaining indeed, as are the outakes.  :)
