    Album Notes
    Personnel: John Lennon.Photographers: Ivor Sharp; Ian MacMillan; Spud Murphy ; Bob Gruen; Peter Fordham.Arranger: John Lennon.Although 2005's WORKING CLASS HERO: THE DEFINITIVE LENNON covers a lot of familiar ground, including all of John Lennon's best-known hits, it's hard to complain when the material is so amazing. In fact, the most striking thing about this two-disc set is how Lennon continued to produce so many consistently strong tunes in the shadow of all the immortal classics he penned with the Beatles. The truth, however, is that Lennon's solo material is nakedly confessional, honest, and emotionally riveting in a way his Beatles' work seldom was.WORKING CLASS HERO represents these qualities admirably by showing Lennon at his most anguished ("Cold Turkey") and reflective ("Watching the Wheels"), alongside moments of pure joy ("(Just Like) Starting Over") and aching poignancy ("Love"). Lennon the outraged rebel ("Gimme Some Truth") is balanced by Lennon the wistful idealist ("Imagine," "Give Peace a Chance"), with the collection hitting all points in between. So while it's not full of surprises or essential material for hardcore Lennon fans who already own his solo albums, this 38-song compilation does offer a well-assembled overview of his finest moments.

    Great Compilation

    Created: 06/03/07
    Includes all the hits, plus some rarities and album tracks. This 2 CD set goes deeper into the John Lennon catalog than other Greatest Hits compilations have in the past. It includes the album versions of the hits, not the edited single versions. A few rarities that have been released through the years and some songs from John albums that a lot of casual fans are not familiar with. I won't argue about the choice of songs because that's always a personal choice and ever person would probably have a different selection. The mastering/ sound is great. It looks as though they took the songs from the re-mixed/ re-mastered CD's that started coming out in 2000. If you are old fan you might notice some changes in the mixes from the original albums. The liner notes are sparse and don't say much but there are some nice photos. Want to dig deeper into John's solo career? This would be a good place to start. It contains something from every point of John's solo career. If I could only have one John Lennon solo CD, this would probably be the one I would choose.

    I grew up with the Beatles. It takes me back to much younger days. Amazing music from an incredibly talented man.
