Released in the UK on 28 November 1988 to promote the just released Imagine : John Lennon film and soundtrack album this version of Imagine spent five weeks in the charts peaking at number 45. We were now at a time when singles were issued in a variety of formats so you could also purchase this single as a CD, 12″ single and 7″ picture disc. It was not released in the US.

Details of the two 7″ singles I own are shown below. The 12″ version can be found here and the CD single, which also includes Give Peace A Chance, can be found here.

Standard 7″ Single

The pictures below are of my standard 7″ copy which has the matrix numbers R6199 A-1-1-3 and R6199 B-1-1-3. The record is in excellent condition, just a little light crackle at the start of both sides. The sleeve is also in excellent condition, just a touch of very light ringwear.

Estimated Value : £5 – £10


7″ Picture Disc

The pictures below are of my now quite rare 7″ picture disc which has the matrix numbers RP6199 A1 and RP6199 B1 It also has SW etched into the run out of the A side. Being a picture disc I have not played it but visually it appears to be in excellent condition. The backing card is also in excellent condition.

Estimated Value : £50 – £60
