Excellent collection of demos and alternate, early takes for those interested in such things. You get to hear the songs as works in progress and John's voice shines in many of the raw takes. I suppose there are no massive surprises, just the many faces and voices of John Lennon. Some selections are poignant, others just funny, like the incredibly goofy outtake of "Remember" on CD 1. My dad was a musician, and some of the home tapes are quite evocative of what it's like living with a musician.

Also, the chronology is mostly right. Arguably, Real Love and Only You should have reversed places in the running order, but there are no alarming time jumps when listening. Well done, Yoko!

So much crap! I'll never understand why people spend money on albums like this. Unfinished songs, demos, outakes... UGGGG, I swear you can hear Yoko breaking dishes in the background.

Confused sequencing on this box set eg.some tracks on 'Ascot' disc 1 were recorded during the ''Dakota' period and vice versa.
