The re-release of John Lennon's "Double Fantasy" album was remastered at the same studio the late Beatle was working in on the night he died. Producer Jack Douglas and his engineer had to rework the album at a Sony studio in New York, which is housed at the site of the former Record Plant.

Lennon was returning home from a session at the Record Plant in December 1980 when he was gunned down by Mark Chapman. Douglas tells Britain's Mojo magazine, "They said to me, 'The room you are going to work in is rumored to be where you worked with John the night he was murdered'."

"So I started the album in the exact same place where I finished it... I walked him down to the elevator and said goodnight and 20 minutes later he was gone. I had to walk back into the same room and start listening to his voice." And it's Lennon's voice that will stir fans when the remastered album is released in October to coincide with what would have been the late star's 70th birthday.

The producer explains, "At the beginning there's a dedication from John, which I'm not going to give away, that was never heard before. You can really hear the spirit and mood that he was in when he was making this record."
