Double CD set released on 8 March 2004 on the Virgin label. This was a European release with UK catalogue number VTDCD 608 and international catalogue number 7243 5 77555 2 8. It’s not strictly a John Lennon release but has become collectable over the years so I’ve included it.
Back in 1965 John Lennon bought a Swiss KB Discomatic portable jukebox which he took on tour filled with 40 of his favourite singles. It fell out of his possesion sometime between him leaving Cynthia and leaving the UK for the US then resurfaced in 1989 when it was sold at auction. This CD set contains 35 A sides and 6 B sides from the singles that were on the jukebox though some of the choices are not the original versions that could have been included back in the mid sixties. You can see the full track listing in the second photo below.
The pictures below are of my copy. The case (usual slight storage marks), 4 page insert and disc are in excellent condition.
Estimated Value : £20 – £25
