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.
