EMI Unveils Tracklists and Cover Art For John Lennon's Gimme Some Truth

September 1, 2010  |  2:10pm

The late John Lennon’s Gimme Some Truth, set to drop in North America Oct. 5, includes eight remastered albums from his original mixes and new collections.

His widow Yoko Ono oversaw the sweeping catalog initiative in commemoration of what would be his 70th birthday.

Solo albums and other recordings appear digitally remastered in Gimme. Double Fantasy is presented newly remixed and stripped in a version original co-producers Yoko Ono and Jack Douglas produced.

New titles get Yoko and John’s son Sean Lennon’s original drawings for Double Fantasy Stripped Down. Walls and Bridges underwent a restoration to its original artwork. Check it out here.

The deluxe 11-CD and digital John Lennon Signature Box includes over a dozen previously unreleased home recordings. Yoko Ono, Sean and Julian Lennon each penned personal essays which also appear in the collection.

Overall, we think it’s a better tribute to his legacy than this.
