Released in the UK on 15 June 1981 this box set consisted of John’s 8 LPs from Live Peace In Toronto to Shaved Fish. There was nothing new about the albums and Plastic Ono Band and Imagine even failed to include the lyric inner sleeves. As well as the albums it contained a copy of the Liverpool Echo’s tribute to John. As far as I know the only other countries it was released in were Brazil, France and Japan. It failed to chart.

I only have the box and the magazine which were given to me by a friendly record store owner when it was released – I don’t know if he had a spare for display or just sold the records off seperately. I’d say that the box is in very good condition, just some shelf wear and a few marks – no rips or writing. The Liverpool Echo tribute magazine is in excellent condition.

At the time of writing (June 2016) there are 3 complete sets for sale on eBay for between £160 and £200 whilst one sold in April for £70. Discogs have 4 decent ones for sale for between £65 and £200. As I have the box and magazine only I’ll estimate it as below

Estimated Value : £20
