If you are looking for most of John Lennon's 2010 remastered albums but can't quite part with $150 for the Signature Box Set, then this is the perfect package for you! For only $30, you get 72 lushly remastered tracks packed onto four thematically assembled discs. The compilers have been generous--PLASTIC ONO BAND & ROCK & ROLL are included in their entirety, while IMAGINE, WALLS & BRIDGES, DOUBLE FANTASY and MILK & HONEY are missing just a track or two each (It's So Hard/Going Down On Love & YaYa original/Dear Yoko/(Forgive Me) My Flower Princess & Grow Old original respectively). Personally, the themes are fine--but with a few extra downloads and some playlisting, you can have most of the Signature box set at pretty amazing price. BUY GIMME SOME TRUTH!

This four-CD, 72-track collection is a long-overdue replacement for the 50th-anniversary 1990 LENNON four-CD set, which, interestly, had 73 songs. The major difference between the two sets is that LENNON (compiled by Mark Lewisohn) was in strictly chronological order, starting with "Give Peace A Chance," and ending with "Grow Old With Me"; GIMME SOME TRUTH, like THE JOHN LENNON ANTHOLOGY, assigns a theme to each CD: Disc 1, "Working Class Hero," features John's political songs; Disc 2, "Woman," contains love songs and "relationship" songs about the women in John's life; Disc 3, "Borrowed Time," showcases John's songs about life; and Disc 4, "Roots," goes back to John's rock 'n' roll days, and features all 13 tracks from 1975's ROCK 'N' ROLL album.

There are 55 songs common to both LENNON and GIMME SOME TRUTH. The 18 songs on LENNON that are not on GST include: "Blue Suede Shoes," "Money," and "Dizzy Miss Lizzy" (all from LIVE PEACE IN TORONTO 1969), "Well (Baby Please Don't Go)" (from LIVE JAM), "It's So Hard," "John Sinclair," "Come Together" (LIVE IN NYC), "Aisumasen (I'm Sorry)," "One Day (At A Time)," "Going Down On Love," "Angel Baby," "Whatever Gets You Thru The Night," "Lucy In The Sky With Diamonds," and "I Saw Her Standing There" (all live with the Elton John Band), "Dear Yoko," Forgive Me (My Little Flower Princess)," "Every Man Has a Woman Who Loves Him" (the Lennon-sung version), and "Grow Old With Me" (the original demo from MILK AND HONEY).

Format: Audio CD
For the average Beatles fan the past 18 months have echoed the words of the English Poet William Wordsworth "Bliss was it that dawn to be alive". Last years complete box set showed that the Fabs music had hidden dimensions amongst the already taken for granted brilliance and at last the recording quality was something to admire than fret about. Now a year later a further smorgasbord of Beatles, Apple and solo releases are about to follow (detailed in a great list by Mark Berry on Amazon). Coinciding with what would have been his 70th birthday probably none are more special than the remastering of the albums of Dr Winston O Boogie, Mr John Lennon himself supported in parts by the Yoko Ono, the Plastic Ono Band, Elton John and a cast of thousands.

There is little point here partaking again in that interminable debate about which Beatle had the best solo career. Neither do I particularly want to get into the discussion about what is or is not included. What is important is the chance to reassess this music in light of the remastering and ascertain whether this themed approach to presenting Lennon's music works over the 4 CDs of this mini box set which to be fair is excellently packaged, with a beautifully annotated booklet and card sleeves. The 4 themes contained here are - Working Class Hero (politics and controversy), Woman (love), Borrowed time (life episodes) and Roots (Rock n Roll)

The themes do broadly fit and such an approach has been applied to other major artists in the past but obviously in the last analysis it's the songs that are the clincher. What is fascinating about the remastering is how the underrated parts of Lennon's canon come to the fore.

Dear Ms Yoko Ono-Lennon,

Excellent job on the new mastering. Avoiding the loudness wars on digital remastering an added
bonus to these new Lennon releases and pshaw to the nay-sayers and detractors that loved the
early 2000 releases and think this is just a ploy to rake in more money.

I wanted to, but just couldn't spring the $150-160 (price fluctuating like the gold standard here
on Amazon) for the Signature Box so this set was definitively the next best thing. The only
items I feel really missing are It's So Hard from Imagine (would have completed the album on
this collection), One Day At A Time from Mind Games (that's okay, I have Elton's version
which was contributed with Lucy on Capt Fantastic), Going Down On Love from Walls & Bridges
(such a wonderful song you left off and would nearly have completed that under-rated masterpiece),
and Dear Yoko from Double Fantasy (were you feeling you had already top-loaded songs he wrote
for you?). As it stands, I can download these as mp3 files and feel complete. At under 30 bucks,
you've managed to give us pretty much all the essential Lennon one could ask for. After all, half
of Mind Games is so-so, and nearly all of Some Time In New York City is throw-away, save
for the three selections you chose (which I think you did simply as a representation of the album
and of course for the necessary Woman Is The N-word of the World, but let's face it, NYC was
sonically lackluster in production, even by John and your minimalist standards).

I took a friends advice and played the cuts from my Lennon Legend CD back to back to these
specimens and yes the new sound is much much better.

Well I can't say for sure but I think since SGT Pepper was pretty much Paul's brainchild John was making light/fun of Paul's sucess with the album and overall idea.
