John Lennon

It’s hard to believe John Lennon would have been 70 years old this coming Saturday, October 9. His music, both with The Beatles and during his solo career, is so timeless and so much a part of our culture today, it’s hard to believe he created those iconic songs decades ago.

There’s no better way to honor the memory of this legend than by listening to and experiencing his music. This year, Lennon’s eight solo albums have been digitally remastered and reissued in special collections.

All of Lennon’s solo albums are available in one signature box set, which includes 11 discs. The set includes all digitally remastered studio albums and two bonus CDs with previously unreleased home recordings. The set also includes a 65 page book with drawings, handwritten lyrics and three new essays to Lennon written by Yoko Ono, Sean Lennon and Julian Lennon.

This is obviously the most complete way to experience Lennon’s solo career. If you’re looking for something a bit more in your price range, the Gimme Some Truth collection looks like a great purchase. The collection includes four CDs, each with its own theme ― Roots, Working Class Hero, Woman or Borrowed Time ― and 72 tracks. You get all the hits, but also some of the more personal, less commercial songs with this collection, possibly a more manageable way for new fans to explore Lennon’s solo career.

There’s also a greatest hits CD for those who just want to listen to Lennon’s most well-known tracks. The disc features 15 songs, including “Instant Karma,” “Give Peace a Chance” and the incomparable “Imagine.” You can also get a DVD of Lennon’s music videos with the CD.

All of Lennon’s remastered albums are available for individual purchase. If you are of the iPod set, all songs and albums are also available for digital download.

As you can see, there are plenty of ways to reacquaint yourself with Lennon’s music or to discover it for the first time. Celebrate Lennon’s legacy this year by listening to the music that changed the industry and the world forever.
