Gimmie Some Truth Box
John was a complex man who had a lot of themes running through his life, and this box set captures his many facets with four thematically arranged CDs. "Borrowed Time (Life’s Lessons)" includes Lennon’s unflinching looks at his life through song, including Mind Games; How Do You Sleep?; Whatever Gets You thru the Night; Cold Turkey; New York City; Watching the Wheels, and more. "Roots (The Rock ‘N’ Roll Beginnings)" includes Yer Blues (live); Stand by Me; Be-Bop-A-Lula; Ain’t That a Shame; Peggy Sue; Slippin’ Slidin’, and more. "Working Class Hero (The Political Side)" features such broadsides as Power to the People; Woman Is the Nigger of the World; I Found Out; Isolation; Imagine; Happy Xmas (War Is Over); Gimme Some Truth; God; Give Peace a Chance; Instant Karma! (We All Shine On); Working Class Hero, and more. And "Woman (Love Songs)" captures his meditations on his relationships with the fairer sex, some romantic, some tortured—Mother; Hold On; Well Well Well; Oh Yoko!; Jealous Guy; My Mummy’s Dead; (Just Like) Starting Over; #9 Dream; I’m Losing You, and more. It all comes inside a slipcased box containing a gorgeous booklet sporting photos, drawings, handwritten lyrics and notes by Rolling Stone writer Anthony DeCurtis that explore the theme of each respective CD. The best Lennon collection ever!
