      GIMME SOME TRUTH. THE ULTIMATE MIXES. OUT OCT 9TH.

      AS PART OF THE CELEBRATIONS FOR JOHN LENNON'S 80TH BIRTHDAY, HIS MOST VITAL AND BEST LOVED SOLO RECORDINGS HAVE BEEN COMPLETELY REMIXED FROM SCRATCH FOR A NEW COLLECTION: GIMME SOME TRUTH.

      WITH A SUITE OF NEW RELEASES INCLUDING A DELUXE BOX SET, FEATURING 36 TRACKS ACROSS 2 CDS AND A BLU-RAY AUDIO DISC WITH HIGH-DEFINITION 24-96 STEREO, IMMERSIVE 5.1 SURROUND SOUND AND DOLBY ATMOS MIXES, PLUS AN EXCLUSIVE 124-PAGE BOOK.

      HOW DO YOU SLEEP? is one of the tracks.

        $79.98 on Amazon. 

          Thanks for that, Nancy, it's a reasonable affordable cost for what sounds like a truly outstanding John Lennon offering. He certainly deserves this high quality rollout for his best songs.  "How Do You Sleep" is included--ouch ! But it IS a very striking song pleasing to the ears, despite its dodgy subject matter (!).  The song "Gimme Some Truth" is a great protest song that really grabs you and sounds very "John."  It especially addresses these dire days with a pathological liar in the highest office in the U.S. I'm glad they dubbed the collection that name. 

            They say that truth is the first casualty of war, and that's certainly true in this war against an unseen enemy. Over here in the U.K. it's a bit difficult getting at the truth, with confusion and incompetence in the corridors of power. John's song was never more apt.

              Gee that last bit sounds familiar!

              Somebody said John already had a compilation or something out called Gimme Some Truth so they should have named this one Instant Karma. Has anyone heard this other GST?
