Both the UK and the US releases were on EMI and both had barcode number 5099990664021. It was housed in a glossy cardboard gatefold sleeve and came with a 6 page fold out inlay. It spent 5 weeks in the UK charts, peaking at number 15, whilst in the US it managed to reach number 24.

Released on the same day was an “Experience Edition” which added a region free DVD containing videos of all 15 tracks on the CD. Also included was a card which gave access to “exclusive John Lennon Online Universe”. This was also on EMI with barcode number 5099990955020.
