The POB LP is a work of art. Lennon went into the studio in 1970, after a breakdown and his recovery via primal scream therapy, and recorded an honest but brutal album. Only Ringo and Klaus (bass... friend from Hamburg days) play on it (with a couple of piano tracks by Nicky Hopkins.) Most songs only have 3 instruments. That said, I find hard to listen to often as it is so brutal.

Fyi, Sean Lennon has taken over responsibility for the Lennon estate from Yoko. I expect some changes in approach moving forward.

- Comments above from a friend of mine who teaches a Beatles course at a local college.

That was beautiful.
Very very nice.

My teenage daughter was singing this the other day.

My wife and I wanted to share our love of music with our kids, and the thing that worked best was an Apple iPod. My son would sit in the back seat of the car and pick out things. He was drawn to movie soundtracks, like A Clockwork Orange and The Good, the Bad and the Ugly. Katie was drawn to the Beatles.

I guess I owe Steve Jobs and Apple a bit of thanks.

So, thank you.

Four tracks from POB are on the Gimme Some Truth set and Mother is on Lennon Legend.
Question: So why buy this set just to get the other five full length tracks plus the 0:49 song at the end?
Answer: To get the other five tracks! (Oh, and Mother will be in high res.)

Should we expect the multichannel mixes on the upcoming box set to differ from those on Gimme Some Truth (the 4 featured tracks)?
