John Lennon anniversary reissues


A 4 CD boxed set from 1990

Rumours are ripe about EMI/Capitol planning to reissue remastered and expanded editions of five of John Lennon's original albums, and a boxed set of the same albums, in time for the celebration of what would have been Lennon's 70th birthday on October 9th, 2010.
Live Daily posted this news item on January 14th. Let me just remind you (and EMI/Capitol) that they have relatively recently spent ten years (from 1995 to 2005) re-releasing these albums already:

1995:
Live Peace In Toronto 1969 (without bonus tracks)
1997:
