John Lennon Singles Bag
EMI Music/Capitol (B003JCBTNS)
By Dave Beard
To support Record Store Day on April 17, 2010, EMI Music released the limited-edition John Lennon Singles Bag. The set comes enclosed in an individually numbered Kraftpak envelope with button and string closure. It is comprised of a custom and dated 45 RPM plastic adaptor hub; a 24” x 36” poster; three 45 RPM vinyl singles with replicated original artwork; and three postcards with artwork collaborative to the coinciding singles. There were 7,000 manufactured.
• Single 1: John Lennon “Mother” b/w Yoko Ono “Why”
• Single 2: John Lennon “Imagine” b/w John Lennon “It’s So Hard”
• Single 3: John Lennon “Watching the Wheels” b/w Yoko Ono “Yes, I’m Your Angel”
The sound quality is wonderful, and the song selection poignant. These songs capture John Lennon’s first person observational best.
