Editorial Reviews

2010 four CD collection, released to coincide with what would have been his 70th birthday. Gimme Some Truth presents 72 of Lennon's solo recordings on four themed CDs: 'Roots' (John's Rock 'n' Roll roots and influences), 'Working Class Hero' (John's socio-political songs), 'Woman' (John's love songs) and 'Borrowed Time' (John's songs about life). All titles digitally remastered and restored to John's original audio mixes spanning his solo career.

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.

5.0 out of 5 stars Yoko Free (almost) October 29, 2010
Format:Audio CD
First off, I am an old guy with lots of memories, that is really what this is. I bought all of John Lennon's RECORDS when they were brand new and waiting to be discovered, waiting in eager anticipation of each and every new release, I remember how much I loved them EXCEPT those where Yoko opened her mouth (I am sure she is a great lady, but). I remember Live peace in Toronto, side one worn out, side two pristine :-), I remember Sometime in NY city sounding ragged and well, having way too much screeching on it.

So that said, this c.d. contains most everything else, it is missing a few songs, NYC is thankfuly absent (2-3 songs made the mix). I see no point in reviewing the songs per se, really, who is not familiar with the music contained within the songs...what I want to know about a reissue is what is the sound quality.

In my mind the sound is very clear, there are some ragged sounding songs, I think that has to do more with the way they were played than recorded...I did notice a little hiss at the end of remember other than that, Yoko did a fantastic job overseeing the remaster...I have seen some complain they do not like the sequence, you know, when I was looking at it, I was not happy either, but, by doing it this way, all the songs seem to fit (with a couple of minor exceptions) it prevents the dated songs (still love them anyway) from taking focus and for me, it does work.

I have seen people complain that it does not contain unrealesed material, no, really, 72 songs for $30 and you want MORE...ok, buy the anthology, lots of unreleased material there, yep 4 discs worth.

Overall, this is a nice trip down memory lane, it is nearly complete, with mostly the "best bits" as the Brits are want to say and if you really, really want Yoko, by all means spend the extra $120 and buy the big box.
