Call it ‘Double Fantasy…Naked’

EMI has just announced a massive John Lennon reissue campaign for October. The most interesting title of the lot is a new edition of “Double Fantasy,” the 1980 album Lennon recorded with his spouse Yoko Ono. Ono and Jack Douglas, who co-produced “Fantasy” with Lennon, have evidently excised some instrumentation from the set — hence its title, “Double Fantasy Stripped Down.”

Ono is a fan of what might be called “raw Lennon”: She curated the 1998 boxed set “John Lennon Anthology,” which pulled together four CDs worth of demos, alternate takes and home recordings, including several initial versions of “Double Fantasy” material. On this new package, she’s taking a page from the campaign for the re-release of the Beatles’ famously muddled album “Let It Be.”
