John and Sean Lennon in a chair at the Dakota building, NYC. 12 December 1975.

In the Raw Studio Mixes, there is none of that. John is front and center – clear, unadulterated, live and raw. Whereas Double Fantasy Stripped Down does have some production enhancements and overdubs, The Imagine Raw Studio Mixes are completely raw and unadorned – they capture the sessions before the gloss was added. The unique challenge in mixing the songs with Yoko was to balance the instruments in a way that fused them into a whole while keeping each individual performance clear, but without the benefit of reverb and effects to do so.
