In our search for bonus material, we listened to demos, all the takes from the one-inch multitrack tapes, and quarter-inch reels recorded in May 1971 by the film crew documenting the sessions at the studio in Ascot. We discovered many moments that, although not long enough to be bonus tracks by themselves, when blended together would help tell the story of each song.
Thirty-two 1-inch, 8-track audio master tape boxes from
Ascot Sound Studios, Tittenhurst, 11 February – 29 May 1971.
From the book Imagine John Yoko
