Biography

If John Lennon had only been one of the four members of the Beatles, his artistic immortality would already have been assured. The so-called "smart Beatle," he brought a penetrating intelligence and a stinging wit both to the band's music and its self-presentation. But in such songs as "Strawberry Fields Forever," "Norwegian Wood (This Bird Has Flown)," ... Read more in Amazon's John Lennon Store

5.0 out of 5 stars All the Lennon you need 16 Oct 2010
By D. Evans VINE VOICE
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
Even before his shocking, violent and untimely death John Lennon was always regarded as a much more enigmatic and fascinating figure than Paul McCartney. One reason for this was to do with his personality, but he was also far less prolific. As a solo artist Lennon only released seven studio albums in ten years, and one of these was an album of covers. There was also a five year gap between the Rock and Roll album and the final album Double Fantasy. So in the second half of the seventies he actually only released two albums. Okay there was the posthumous Milk and Honey and of course a few non album singles which artist regularly released in those days, but this is still far from prolific. In that same period McCartney issued about ten albums and many more since. Of course there is no knowing if Lennon would have gone on to become more prolific once again had he lived.

A fascinating game for rock fans is to estimate whether either of the main Beatles would have been regarded as the great geniuses they are considered to be had they been measured on their solo work only. As this is a Lennon review I will just concentrate on his work. Whether he has produced better solo music than McCartney is difficult to compare, however I think because he wasn't so prolific he was usually at least more interesting. I also believe both produced their fair share of rubbish, more so Macca simply because he was more prolific. Certainly the almost immaculate quality control exercised by the Beatles throughout their career (perhaps with the help of George Martin) was no longer evident in either of Lennon-McCartney solo careers.

By Red on Black TOP 50 REVIEWER VINE VOICE
Format:Audio CD
For the average Beatles fan the past 18 months have echoed the words of 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 Barry 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 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 He really mean it 5 Dec 2011
By BrynG
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
I spent my youth buying the solo albums of John Lennon, and so these songs have been in my consciousness for a long time, and there is nothing new here for me. But having such a large well chosen body of work all brought together on 4 CDs really brings home the power of his writing and singing. All the songs have a strong emotional content; this is what he is all about.
Personally I really like the way each CD has a theme as you can decide which Lennon you want to tap into.
A true giant who delivers on every track in this collection.

5.0 out of 5 stars Gimme Some Truth by John Lennon 29 May 2011
Format:Audio CD
This is an excellent box set of some really great music from John Lennon.
Some of his albums are completely included on this set. i.e. The Rock and Roll album. Others almost complete and some reviewers have complained that they are not in the original order of the albums, but if you can look past that, you will find that it is a great collection of his songs.
The only complaint I had with it, and it's a small one, was that when I unwrapped it, I found that the complete list of the albums and their tracks that I could see through the cellophane was actually only printed on a loose piece of paper and not on the cover as it had seemed.
I know the titles are on each cover inside, but the printed list that came with it should have been printed on the outside and not on a flimsy piece of paper.
But that's just a small complaint which does'nt take away from this being a terrific buy for a reasonable price.

Format:Audio CD
Most interesting item for somebody who doesn't want to collect the music of John Lennon and Yoko Ono, but like to have the most important work of them. Nice presentation and good remastering.
