John Tout is incorrectly credited with playing the acoustic guitar on track A2. He actually played the piano on this track, per a May 1998 interview with Opening Out. External links are not allowed, so here is the information quoted/taken from that interview:

Was the track you did "Crippled Inside"?
Yes it was. That's the one that I worked on just bashing out chords. They put me down as a guitarist. That was an administrative error on somebody's part. It wasn't anything serious, it was just John Lennon doing his usual/unusual stuff.

I wouldn't recommend this one. My copy had quite a lot of surface noise - not enough to ruin the experience but definitely more than I would want on a new release. I also found the sound to be fairly muddy, the remaster is quite underwhelming in my opinion. I was able to upgrade to a NM UK original some time later and that blew this reissue out of the water. This is an acceptable reissue that just about does the job, but not much more - go for the UK 1st if you can.

Any comment? Usually I hate Back to Black series, but who knows.
