John Lennon‘s 1970 album John Lennon/Plastic Ono Band is getting a super deluxe 50th anniversary box set on April 16 via Capitol/UMe. The eight-disc The Ultimate Collection (6 CDs, 2 Blu-rays) includes a new mixes of the album from Paul Hicks (who worked on the Imagine reissue and Gimme Some Truth best-of), as well as studio outtakes, demos and more, featuring over 11 hours of music. You can listen to the Ultimate Mix of "Mother" and watch a trailer for the box set below.

There are a few different new mixes with the box set. The Ultimate Mixes "put John's vocals front and center and sonically upgrade the sound"; the Element Mixes "isolate and bring forth certain elements from the multitrack recordings to reveal even deeper levels of detail and clarity"; and the Raw Studio Mixes "allow listeners to experience the moment John and the Plastic Ono Band recorded each song, mixed raw and live without effects, tape delays or reverbs."

There's also The Evolutionary Documentary, which features "a unique track-by-track audio montage that details the evolution of each song from demo to master recording via instructions, rehearsals, recordings, multitrack exploration and studio chatter." The set includes two Blu-ray discs with even more options, including 5.1 Surround and Dolby Atmos mixes. There are demos of all 14 of the album's songs, more raw mixes and outtakes, as well as 22 between-take "jams" including a few impromptu covers (Chuck Berry's "Johnny B. Goode," Fats Domino's "Ain't That A Shame" Little Richard's "Send Me Some Lovin'").

Also included in The Ultimate Collection are two postcards ("Who Are The Plastic Ono Band?" and "You Are The Plastic Ono Band"), a "War Is Over!" poster and a 132-page hardback book with lyrics, rare photos, tape box images, memorabilia and extensive liner notes.

If you don't need quite that much, John Lennon/Plastic Ono Band is also being released as a half-speed mastered 2LP vinyl set, a two-CD set and a single CD edition.

You can preorder the reissues now, and check out the full tracklist below.
