Peak UK Chart Position

Released in the UK only though I’m not exactly sure when –  I’ve read 1981, 1982 and 1988 – though being vinyl I’d lean towards the early 80’s as CD was taking over later in the decade. This picture disc is similar to Reflections And Poetry in that it contains excerpts, though longer ones, from the last interview John did with RKO Radio on 8 December 1980 just 12 hours before before his death. Being on Baktabak Records I’m not even sure if it’s an official release – Discogs certainly don’t think so!

The pictures below are of my copy which has the matrix numbers BAK 2096 A and BAK 2096 B and appears to be in excellent condition – being a picture disc I’ve never played it. The cover would rate as very good, just some minor storage wear, minor ringwear and a little creasing.

NB Official release or not, this is a first press copy, later copies come in a die cut sleeve with the rear advertising other Baktabak picture disc interviews.

Estimated Value – £10 – £20
