Shaved Fish : the best greatest hits compilation
« on: June 30, 2004, 09:51:43 PM »

Shaved Fish is probably the best of the greatest hits compilations with a great album cover as well from any former Beatle during the 70's showcasing John as the music genius that he was after the breakup of the Beatles.

Nope.  That would be George's or Paul's Wings Greatest Hits.

 Well, I think Shaved Fish is kind of sparse. I own both George's and Paul's GH and they're OK. I mean, I much prefer George to Paul and would have appreciated a greater variety and no Beatles tunes. I love his Beatles work, but I would have loved to hear his solo stuff truthfully.

 Paul's is OK.

 George's BW boxset is wonderful, though. VAST improvement as far as I'm concerned. And still, the Lennon Anthology blows them all away to me. Production is so crisp and clear that its like hearing brand new songs. I also dig 97% of the John demos I have heard. Wow. Talk about beautiful.

Lennon Anthology and Lennon are my favorites. Just PERFECT box sets. If we're going for a greatest hits compilation, the best is Lennon Legend. The Wingspan set is a nice value, but half of the songs on it could've been exchanged for much better tracks, so it's a bit of a let down. As for George and Ringo.....well....all that's in print are their very short Best Ofs, unfortunately.

Thanks, I just bought "Lennon Legend" on DVD but have to get a DVD player.  Looking forward to playing it.

You'll love it....probably the most enjoyable Beatles DVD to watch....even better than Anthology.

 I love the "Lennon Legend" DVD and completely agree with you. I get teary-eyed each time I put it on, which isn't a lot because its such an emotional baggage. But such gorgeous vids! My fave is "Watching the Wheels."

Most of you are just disagreeing with me to disagree with me for some reason concerning Shaved Fish as a greatest hits compilation without giving me an honest opinion positive or negative which shows.

SHAVED FISH may have been nice in 1975, but today it's definitely lacking. "Give Peace a Chance" is incomplete, and "Woman is the N of the World" was missing a line. Best thing about the album now is the title.

There have been better collections of hits for John since SHAVED FISH. My favorite being THE JOHN LENNON COLLECTION (which also cotains Move Over Ms. L).
