review of the new album...I mean compilation
« on: October 09, 2005, 01:14:01 AM »

i got Working Class Hero - The Difinitive Lennon and i have to say that this is a great album. the songs are a perfect mix of his solo stuff. the only gripe i have: why the bloody hell could they come out with this a year ago when i started to really get into the solo stuff so i wouldnt have to spend another 20 bucks on the Lennon Legend cd.

yoko, you may have put johns good songs on this as opposed to Wonsaponatime which included everything, but i hope that my money will cause you everlasting pain for cheating thousands of fans into buying this after they already bought the damn lennon legend cd >:(

great cd though

only thing i thought was a problem was all the friggin remixes on disc 2. and those are all the non-hit songs too. WTBF Yoko! are those original songs too much of crap for you!

Why not buy all of his solo stuff and screw the compilations?

Then your missing out and I have to question just how much a Johnboy fan you are. Thats like me saying that Sugarloaf is my favorite band, but I only have the greatest hits. Just never understood that. You miss way to much music by just buying greatest hits compilations, plus the fact its the same sh*t they play on the radio anyways. Whatever.

It should be the other way around. If you know the songs on a greatest hits album, you don't need it unless you want a nice tidy collection of songs. Its the actual digging and listening to stuff you haven't heard that's the main thing. There's alot of great songs on Lennon's solo stuff you won't hear otherwise. That's just my point of view. Alot of people like having generic 'Best Of's' in their collection I guess.

I think some of the 'best of' material isn't on any compilations. You'll never hear 'How', 'How Do You Sleep', 'Old Dirt Road', etc. Enjoy your compilations.

hey, i do listen to and own a bunch of his solo/non compilation stuff. i just start out with some bands best of and then go into their normal albums. but i do own POB, Imagine, and DF and im now going to get Mind Games. but you do realize that these albums cost 15-25 bucks, and a 16 yr old teen who works only three days a week cant buy them as often as i wish. its taken me 5 years to get every beatle album that came out when they were a band. and now i'm moving to John's stuff.

and next time, read my entire post. dont just pick and choose what you read cause i did mention that i do own his original albums.

Well, whats it going to be? I have read the entire thread and your contradicting yourself. Are you buying/owning his stuff or not?

Saw this review on Amazon.co.uk:

Quote
Reviewer: Kenneth B. Spencer from USA
Another Greatest Hits? Oh right Christmas is coming...
Dear Yoko,
I believe John now has more Greatest Hits albums than Jimi Hendrix. Is there nothing new, or unheard in your vault? Please share, none of us are getting any younger.
I have to believe if John were still with us, he would STOP putting out "Woman Is The black person of the World" c'mon the song was not relevant during the sexual revolution, it's sure not relevant now, we didn't need it on Acoustic Lennon either. I know I would be hard pressed to find a decent song to release off of "Sometime In New Your City" too, John is allowed to have albums meant to be forgotten, Paul certainly does.
Thank you for remembering us at X-mas,
Shine On!
Ken

Spot on.

There are more albums besides Plastic Ono Band and Imagine that are good though, Mind Games for example and Walls & Bridges.
