Best Lennon Compilation Ever!!!, Nov. 28 2010
The remastered Lennon Box Set "Gimme Some Truth" is an excellent overview of John's solo musical output. It captures all the hits as well as all the best songs from all of his solo albums. If you want more than just all his radio hits, this is the set to buy. I was really impressed how they arranged the songs on the discs by the various themes (Working Class Hero, Woman, Borrowed Time and Roots). The packaging with the cardboard cd sleeves,Lennon booklet insert and access to the John Lennon Universe online make it the perfect box set. Last but definitely not least is the incredible remastered sound of the Beatle legend. In conclusion: If I am to paraphrase the old Goldilocks and the 3 Bears fairytale as to which Lennon remaster to purchase I would say that the "Signature Box Set" is overkill (too hot) and "Power to the People: The Hits" is definitely not enough (too cold). "Gimme Some Truth" is just right........
