A new box set featuring high-quality vinyl versions of John Lennon's eight studio albums will be released on June 9. The nine-disc collection, titled simply Lennon, marks the first time that vinyl editions of the late Beatles star's solo albums will be available together in one package.
Each album -- spanning from Lennon's 1970 solo debut, Plastic Ono Band, through the 1984's posthumous Milk and Honey -- is pressed on 180-gram vinyl and replicates the original U.K. version's art, sleeves and other packaging elements. All but two of the records -- 1971's Imagine and 1975's Rock 'n' Roll -- have long been out of print on vinyl in the U.S. A video showing the collection being unboxed can be viewed at Lennon's official YouTube channel.
The albums were remastered in 2010 using Lennon's original mixes by Yoko Ono and a group of engineers at London's Abbey Road Studios and New York City's Avatar Studios, while the new vinyl masters were cut at Abbey Road by engineer Sean Magee.
The new vinyl editions of Lennon's solo albums will be released individually on August 21.
Here is the full list of albums featured in the Lennon vinyl box set:
John Lennon/Plastic Ono Band (1970)
Some Time in New York City (two LPs) (1972)
Mind Games (1973)
Walls and Bridges (1974)
Rock 'n' Roll (1975)
