Remixed from the original multitrack master tapes

Commemorating John Lennon's 80th birthday

The definitive new Best Of John Lennon — 36 tracks on four 180-gram LPs completely remixed from the original master tapes giving these classic songs a new life for generations to come and sounding better than ever before. Lift-off lid box contains 4LPs, 8-page booklet, fold-out double-sided poster, 2 post cards and GIMME
SOME TRUTH. bumper sticker.

To commemorate what would have been John Lennon's 80th birthday, his family selected 36 songs from his solo catalog and enhanced them for a new special edition set, Gimme Some Truth.

Each of the tracks in the collection — which was executive-produced by Yoko Ono Lennon and produced by Sean Ono Lennon — has been remixed from scratch for what they claim is the highest quality rendition. The collection will come out in a variety of formats on October 9, 2020.

The Lennons are previewing the collection with the “ultimate mix” of “Instant "Karma! (We All Shine On).” The remix sounds clearer than the original, which was a bit muddy, and John’s voice sounds crisp, where the single mix was sometimes distorted. Alan White’s syncopated drumming also stands out more on the remix.

“John was a brilliant man with a great sense of humor and understanding,” Yoko Ono Lennon wrote in the Deluxe Edition’s book. “He believed in being truthful and that the power of the people will change the world. And it will. All of us have the responsibility to visualize a better world for ourselves and our children. The truth is what we create. It’s in our hands.”

Audio engineer Paul Hicks, who handled the remixes of Imagine – The Ultimate Collection oversaw each of the new renditions for Gimme Some Truth, with assistance from engineer Sam Gannon. They used new transfers from the original tapes and mixed the songs in analog at Los Angeles’ Henson Recording Studios; engineer Alex Wharton mastered them in analog at Abbey Road. Wharton also mastered the vinyl release at Abbey Road.

“Yoko is very keen that in making The Ultimate Mixes series we achieve three things: remain faithful and respectful to the originals, ensure that the sound is generally sonically clearer overall and increase the clarity of John’s vocals,” Hicks wrote in the Deluxe Edition book. “‘It’s about John,’ she says. And she is right. His voice brings the biggest emotional impact to the songs.”

The tune “Instant Karma,” incidentally, came out in February 1970, a couple of months before the Beatles announced their breakup. The track got Lennon on Top of the Pops, according to Rolling Stone’s latest cover story chronicling the Beatles breakup, and that event marked the first time a Beatle had appeared on the program solo. “I wrote [the song] for breakfast, recorded it for lunch and we’re putting it out for dinner,” Lennon remarked.
