John Lennon – Gimme Some Truth
2010, Capitol Records
GIMME SOME TRUTH is a four disc set that is aimed at the consumer that would like more than just Lennon’s basic hits in their collection but doesn’t want to purchase all the albums. This box set is part of the 70th Birthday Celebration and does have something for everyone including the major fan.
It isn’t just the casual listener that will buy this set, the completists and die-hards will as well. Some of us fans have this need to obtain and own every Lennon issue and GIMME SOME TRUTH just adds to it. This set gives us remastered versions of “Yer Blues”, “Hound Dog” and “Here We Go Again” which are not featured on the SIGNATURE box set, making this a must own.
Beautiful packaging in small LP replica sleeves each disc is compiled as a theme which mixes it up a little. You couldn’t get a better set for for your hard earned dollar. It is the perfect stepping stone after the POWER TO THE PEOPLE disc.
