  • Imagine contains reproductions of its two postcards, poster and inner sleeve
  • Some Time In New York City includes reproductions of its original postcard and inner sleeves
  • Walls and Bridges includes its sleeve with two fold-over flaps, an eight-page booklet and inner sleeve
  • Mind Games, Double Fantasy and Milk and Honey also include faithful reproductions of their original inner sleeves (the latter even seems to sport a Polydor label like the original)

That's great. My original LPs are in good shape, as are the inserts. When is the Estate going to reissue Live Peace In Toronto, Menlove Ave., the bonus tracks from the 2010 reissues, etc.?
