Default Record Store Day "Imagine" 40th Ann. Vinyl Box Set

Did anyone buy the latest vinyl release of " Imagine" made available for Record Store Day? It was meant as an RSD exclusive limited edition but now you can order it also through the official John Lennon site. I don't mind it being made available elsewhere, but it shows once again that the words limited and exclusive really means nothing in cases like this.

I had it in my hands, and while the box and its contents looks beautiful I decided not to buy it. All the RSD items were overpriced imo and in the end I only got the Pink Floyd set. The sound on this vinyl isn't very good I read also, so I am better of listening to the vinyl version I already have.
But you get the Imagine lp again together with the first vinyl release of the Imagine session outtakes that were included on the Anthology set and a lovely package. So if you want another look at the poster, the cards the sleeves and a nice box to stare at....

Very limited "40th anniversary" edition for "Black Friday"/ Record Store Day.

No, didn't buy it... but I went to see it in my local record store. If I started collecting all the special edition Lennon stuff, I'd be broke by the time I reach 50!

All I want is the truth
Just give me some truth...

Oh dang. I want it. Ugh...I've got to stop...

But I sort of want to get into the habit of collecting vinyls, and what better way to pick up the hobby again?

Oh dang.... I've got to stop too... but it's already too late; I ordered it yesterday...

Of course, it's not a cheap item; but what a beautiful piece of collection of this classic album

Oh Scruffie, it's a nice habit to collect vinyls, I only can encourage to do so I've started last year to collect rare vinyls and picture discs of John and the Beatles... I didn't regret it so far
