Following weeks of painstaking preparation, the final mixes and effects were completed using only vintage analog equipment and effects at Henson Recording Studios in Los Angeles. They were then mastered in analog at Abbey Road Studios in London by Alex Wharton.

In the 124-page book that’s part of the Deluxe Edition, Yoko writes: “John was a brilliant man with a great sense of humor and understanding. He believed in being truthful and that the power of the people will change the world. And it will. All of us have the responsibility to visualize a better world for ourselves and our children. The truth is what we create. It’s in our hands.”  The book has been designed and edited by Simon Hilton, who was the compilation producer and production manager of the Ultimate Collection series. The story of each of the 36 songs is described in John and Yoko’s own words and of those who worked with them.
