GIMME SOME TRUTH. traces the arc of Lennon’s post‐Beatles life and career, bringing together songs from all of his revered solo albums . The collection is bookended with his early non‐album singles, kicking off with the one‐two punch of “Instant Karma! (We All Shine On),” and the electrifying addiction‐themed “Cold Turkey,” and culminating with the holiday classic “Happy Xmas (War Is Over)” and the anti‐war protest anthem “Give Peace A Chance”.
Some of the many other highlights include the sonically sumptuous “Jealous Guy” and “#9 Dream,” the acerbic “How Do You Sleep?,” the breezy, carefree “Watching The Wheels,” a rollicking live recording of “Come Together” that he had originally recorded with The Beatles, the rapturous Elton John collaboration “Whatever Gets You Thru The Night,” and the jubilant, bittersweet “I’m Stepping Out.”
Like all Lennon projects, intense thought and care went into the making of GIMME SOME TRUTH and the remixing of these treasured songs. The results speak for themselves and allow Lennon’s voice and words to shine on, clearer and brighter, at a time when they are needed now, more than ever. Throughout these incredible, timeless songs we experience the many facets of John Lennon: the songwriter, the revolutionary, the musician, the husband, the truth‐teller, the dad, the provocateur, the peace activist, the artist, the icon.
