From the Imagine album and one of John’s most popular tracks, this single was released in the UK on 18 November 1985 and spent two weeks in the charts at numbers 65 and 72. It was not released in the US until three years later, in November 1988 when it was used to promote the Imagine : John Lennon film, and reached number 80 in the charts.

Although it’s often said the lyrics are with Yoko in mind, have another listen/read – they could be an apology for Paul, or even Cynthia!

Details of the copy I own are shown below. I have the 12″ copy of this, details here. I also have two 1988 copies of Imagine on 7″ single and picture disc where Jealous Guy is on the B side along with Happy Xmas (War Is Over). Details can be found here

The pictures below are of my copy which has the matrix numbers R6117 A-1-1 and R6117 B-1-1-1. The record is in excellent condition, playing through beautifully throughout. The sleeve is also in excellent condition, just a touch of light ringwear and creasing.

Estimated Value : £5
