Imagine is the second studio album by John Lennon after his departure from the Beatles. Recorded and released in 1971, the album's musical arrangements are more elaborate compared to the basic, small-group arrangements of his first album, John Lennon/Plastic Ono Band. Imagine is the most popular of Lennon's solo albums and the title track is considered by many to be one of Lennon's finest songs. In 2012, the album was voted 80th on Rolling Stone magazine's list of the "500 Greatest Albums of All Time".
Imagine is a 1972 television film by John Lennon and Yoko Ono, filmed mostly at their Tittenhurst Park home in Ascot, England, during 1971, and intended for television. All the songs from Lennon's Imagine album appear in the soundtrack, and also the songs "Mrs. Lennon" and "Don't Count the Waves", from Ono's album Fly. The program consists mostly of "film promos" around the song selection, interspersed with occasional slices of Lennon and Ono's life together, and also fantasy and "gag" sequences

Very interesting documentary about the making of the album imagine.

A restored and remixed version of John Lennon & Yoko Ono’s Imagine will reach theaters around the world beginning on Sept. 17.

According to a press release, Imagine, which Lennon and Ono directed, was restored frame-by-frame from the original reels, and the audio has been remixed by Paul Hicks.
Released September 9, 1971. After the primal-scream therapy of Plastic Ono Band, John Lennon softened up and opened up on his second solo album. There is still the stinging Gimme Some Truth and Lennon’s evisceration of Paul McCartney, How Do You Sleep? – both featuring George Harrison on guitar. But there is also the aching soul of John Lennon and the irresistible vulnerability of Oh Yoko! Imagine is self-consciously luminescent, pointedly embraceable, the sound of cynicism melting.
John Lennon's song "Imagine" will forever be etched into the consciousness of listeners as the melodic mantra of late-'60s, early-'70s idealism. It also serves as the wistful epitaph of a complex, challenging artist whose life was tragically taken by a deranged fan. The album of the same name was recorded in May 1971, when Lennon was 30, a year and a half after the acrimonious breakup of rock's most acclaimed band, which he co-founded, the Beatles.
