    Seeing as how I don't own a copy of this CD, I am interested in MoFi's forthcoming version. However, should I be concerned by this part of the informational blurb?:

    "Utilizing updated remixes supervised by Yoko Ono herself..."

    What does that mean???

    John Lennon
    Imagine (Mobile Fidelity 24 kt. Gold Ultradisc II CD)
    Utilizing updated remixes supervised by Yoko Ono herself, classic tracks such as "Imagine" and "Jealous Guy" are unveiled with sparkling detail and spectacular resolution. Listeners will literally surrender to the delicacy of "Oh My Love" and rally to protest anthems such as "Give Me Some Truth" and "I Don't Want To Be A Soldier" as forgotten idealism is rekindled. From ferocity to fragility, MFSL's mastering accompanies and refines the wide emotional range and sheer beauty that comprises Phil Spector's tasteful production of John Lennon's Imagine.

    Yep, that is true, Yoko seems to have no plans of ever re-releasing the original mixes.

    I would have preferred Super Audio of the original mixes...oh well. MoFi may make it sound okay...

    I have a couple of copies of the original record. I's don't need this version. Yoko, should stick to remixing her own albums, err, change that to erasing them. [​IMG]

    So, based on the whole Yoko thing, is this a buy for someone who doesn't have the original?

    I have the MFSL lp of Imagine which sounds great, so I will wait to hear the reviews on the gold cd.
