Eight of John Lennon's classic solo albums and
other standout recordings have been digitally remastered from his original mixes
for a global catalogue initiative commemorating the music legend's 70th
birthday, which falls on October 9.

Overseen by Yoko Ono, John Lennon's 'Gimme Some
Truth' campaign will launch on 4 October (5 October in North America) with the
worldwide release of eight remastered studio albums and several newly compiled
The albums have been digitally remastered from
Lennon’s original mixes by Yoko Ono and a team of engineers led by Allan Rouse
at EMI Music’s Abbey Road Studios in London and by George Marino at Avatar
Studios in New York. All of the remastered titles will be packaged in
digisleeves with replicated original album art and booklets with photos and new
liner notes by noted British music journalist Paul Du Noyer.

Says Yoko: "In this very special year, which would
have seen my husband and life partner John reach the age of 70, I hope that this
remastering / reissue programme will help bring his incredible music to a whole
new audience. By remastering 121 tracks spanning his solo career, I hope also
that those who are already familiar with John’s work will find renewed
inspiration from his incredible gifts as a songwriter, musician and vocalist and
from his power as a commentator on the human condition. His lyrics are as
relevant today as they were when they were first written and I can think of no
more apposite title for this campaign than those simple yet direct words 'Gimme
Some Truth'.
