This is the only compilation John Lennon ever released while he was alive. It has a lot of the bigger hits, not the best songs, but biggest hits of his solo career. The artwork is quite stunning, with full lyrics. It could be a good place to start if you don't have any of his other albums, but if do have all the other albums, as always with compilations, there's nothing new here. For a more complete overview of Lennons music I suggest the John Lennon Anthology box set. It has 4 disks with most of his solo carreer covered, and has a lot of live and rare studio stuff.

I first got to hear all o John Lennon's works, when I got into the Beatles, and I decided to delve into the magical treaure chest that is John's career.
I am quite young, so I wouldn't really know what's behind it, or even to judge if it were a classic, but I have to say that it is impeccable.
It is like a 'best of' collection, some of his most famous work, and certainly the songs of his I like the most. It ranges from the rock and energy of 'Whatever Gets you Through the Night', to the preaching and almost a meditation of a song, 'Imagine'.
Everyones favourite Christmas song is included, and the gospel like 'Power to the People'. After listening I began to feel the past, and the thoughts and ways. In my mind, this will always be classic, and I can't stop listening...

It is very rarely that I would review a compilation album, having an immense preference album for original albums because they and they alone display the continuity that a compilation can virtually never offer. And this indeed is a compilation album and so in my opinion is vastly inferior to virtually all of Lennon's solo albums, the possible exception being 'Some Time In New York City' (1972). But compared to the countless compilations we have seen since Lennon's tragic death in 1980, at least this album has something none of those albums have.
It was put together by Lennon himself. Not by some record company. Not even by Yoko, who on balance has done a decent job of keeping the Lennon flame alive. And it does a pretty good job of summarizing Lennon's work from 1970-1975. Which is Not Easy. For example, 'Mother' from the first album sounds hopelessly out of place on Any Compilation. It is too God Damn personal for that. Or to quote Lennon in his historic Playboy interview in September 1980: 'I hate that phrase, please replace God Damn with 'F***ing', more appropriate to the magazine we're dealing with!'
But this album is important at least for the singles 'Cold Turkey' (1969), 'Instant Karma' (1970), and 'Power To The People' (1971) which were previously unavailable on an album. And they flow pretty well with the other classics we all know and love.
But being a compilation from a man who produced several stunning solo albums, I can bring myself to give this album no more than 4 stars. If you Must purchase a compilation then this is the one my friends. And yes, the front cover artwork is admittedly superb, not that you can see it too well on a CD!

Some people will tell you John Lennon was a genius (not least the man himself). That he wasn't - not on his own - is conclusively demonstrated by this collection of dreary, sanctimonious, humourless and often tuneless polemics, the best argument for the Beatles staying together that you'll ever hear. You can sympathise with Lennon feeling he ought to make these big political statements, but enjoying the results is another matter. It includes Imagine - possibly the most overrated song of all time - but not his best solo number, Jealous Guy. Strictly for people with their fists in the air, the most attractive thing about it is probably the cover.

In the autumn of 1975 I was very excited about about if there would be a successor to "Walls & Bridges", so Shaved Fish came out.
If one had not the early singles (which I didn't have), here they were. This LP was a kind of comfort.

The cover as usuall when it's a Lennon LP, is excellent.

John Lennon was one of the great minds of the 20th century. His value as an icon is undoubted but his post-Beatles career was spotty.

I think that his Walls and Bridges period was his best apart from his first great work,John Lennon/Plastic One Band.

But here,on one disc are his singles.The really great Instant Karma,The kitch but wonderful Happy Xmas War Is Over,Mind Games, and my favorite Whatever Gets You Through The Night which has hugely grown on me over the years.Its humor and urgency a perfect partner for the equally great but acerbic Instant Karma.

I think if you buy the album for just those 2 tracks,you've got it made !!
