THE ALBUM OF THE DAY
JOHN LENNON...The John Lennon Collection (1982)
(CD, vinyl, Allmusic review)
This being the 31st anniversary of his death The John Lennon Collection is the Album Of The Day. First, to get it out of the way, the music here is outstanding. It gathers his solo singles and his tracks from Double Fantasy, his album released in 1980 shortly before his death. This compilation plus any albums of unreleased music plus a box set of alternate takes and unreleased material is all that should have been released. This collection has been re-released under different names and different running orders (with some other tracks at times) to many times since 1982. This version of the song "Imagine" has been released officially on 10 different album packages. A bit much!! However, the music here is a good selection of his "biggies" so enjoy
