Probably His Best Single Collection
on 8 January 2003
It's tough to imagine, but this is the best collection of Lennon's best songs to date. Don't be fooled by that Box Set. That contains an odd collection of outtakes, redubs, early studio Beatles works and interviews.
These are the single edits of the hits that made the charts and some that didn't. If there was any one album that covers Lennon and his magic (it's impossible), this is as close as one gets.
If you are a marginal Lennon fan, this is your CD. If you are a completist, you already have all these songs. It is nice, however, to have them all one disc - even if there are only twenty masterpieces.
