Looking back, there are more than enough John Lennon collections to keep the most ardent of fans happy. The last Lennon collection (Power To The People) was issued in 2010 and contained 15 solid tracks, newly remastered. But now, a new set is being released that boasts of remixed tracks. With the success of Steven Wilson and his library of remixed classics, I’m gonna be in for this one. Plus, the new set is vying to be the definitive issue of Lennon classics.

On October 9, Universal will assemble an impressive John Lennon collection set with Gimme Some Truth (The Ultimate Remixes). Gimme Some Truth will provide 36 songs in the Deluxe set, with a single CD being prepped with 19 tracks. Gimme Some Truth will be issued on 2CD/BD Deluxe, 2CD (without BD), and a single CD. LPs will come in a 4LP package containing 36 tracks, and a 2LP set with 19. The Blu-ray (BD) will contain new hi-res Stereo and 5.1 Surround mixes including Dolby Atmos (96kHz/24-bit).

The Deluxe 2CD/BD Box of Gimme Some Truth will include a massive 124-page hardbound book. The Box is rounded out the inclusion of a fold-out poster, 2 postcards, and a bumper sticker.

  1. I loved the 2018 remix of ‘Imagine’, so when I saw this pop-up yesterday I was very excited (and I still am). However, I was stunned and perplexed when I discovered that ‘Borrowed Time’ was not on there. Don’t get me wrong, I want ALL the singles on there. But surely if one had to choose one track over another it would be ‘Borrowed Time’ over ‘Stepping Out’ as it charted higher.

    1. I quite agree. “Borrowed Time” should be on here. They could have left out the live version of “Come Together”. Or something. Or just simply have added it. I’m sure the room was there.
