    Happy Birthday John Lennon!

    Imagine was the first CD I ever had, and that song is among my all time favourites. I also like a lot of his other solo songs such as Jealous Guy and Power to the People.

    I'll never forget the day the news broke that Lennon had been shot. It was unbelievable. I remember watching the news footage of the fans gathering around the Dakota apartment buildings where John & Yoko lived and watching as Paul, Ringo arrived. I was only 17.

    I can't wait to see the documentary "Lennonnyc" about his time living in this city. There was a free screening of the film in Central Park on Saturday but the documentary will air on PBS next month.

    Here's a preview:

    Default Cynthia Lennon 1939-2015


    by Jeff Giles April 1, 2015

    Cynthia Lennon, John Lennon‘s first wife and mother to their son Julian, has succumbed to cancer at the age of 75.

    News of Lennon’s death comes courtesy of a short press release that reads, “Cynthia Lennon passed away today at her home in Mallorca, Spain, following a short but brave battle with cancer. Her son Julian Lennon was at her bedside throughout. The family are thankful for your prayers. Please respect their privacy at this difficult time.”

    As of this writing, the front page of Julian’s website has been updated in her honor, featuring a photo of Lennon inscribed “In Loving Memory” and appended by a musical video tribute with the same title, which you can watch above.

    Cynthia Powell met John Lennon in 1957 at the Liverpool College of Art, which she attended after graduating from the city’s Junior Art School. Married in August 1962, the couple kept a low profile due to Lennon’s increasingly successful career as a member of the Beatles, and an effort to avoid alienating the group’s female fan base; even after Julian’s birth in April 1963, their marriage was kept a closely guarded secret.

    The Lennons’ union eventually became common knowledge, but the strain of John’s career — and his overall mercurial nature — continued to wear on their marriage, which ended in 1968. Cynthia remarried after the divorce, but her relationship with John remained a topic of interest that occasionally paid the bills; she published her first memoir, A Twist of Lennon, in 1978, with another volume, simply titled John, in 2005.

    “I’ve had the most amazing life, a wonderful life,” Cynthia reflected during an interview with Classic Bands. “I’ve got the best son anyone could possibly wish for in the world and a marriage to a wonderful man also. Sounds very gushing, but I’m really happy. And all the experience has not spoiled anything for me, I promise you. I still open my eyes in the morning and feel a beautiful, sunny day in Spain and think how lucky I am.”

    He was a great musician. I like Paul and George better, but John had a unique sound that he brought to the Beatles. Great solo career, too.

    I didn't realise there was a Lennon thread on here. Big fan of his solo material. I haven't listened to his music for ages thinking about it. I immediately put on my favourite song by him when I saw the bump.



    This will very shortly follow:

    Default Imagine: The Ultimate Collection


    One of the focal points of the solo career of John Lennon will be commemorated with the 5 October release by Universal Music of the six-disc box set Imagine: The Ultimate Collection.

    Centred on Lennon’s second solo album first released in 1971, when it went to No.1 in six countries including the US and UK the remixed and remastered 140-track collection has been fully authorised by Yoko Ono Lennon, who oversaw its production and creative direction. Exclusive bundles including a limited edition clear vinyl version and Imagine theatrical poster are available in the uDiscover store.

    The expanded edition features four CDs and two Blu-ray discs, offering the new ‘Ultimate Mixes’ of the album, which reveals new levels of sonic depth and definition to the work; the ‘Raw Studio Mixes’, which invite the listener to hear Lennon’s unadorned performances of the songs with the Plastic Ono Band; 5.1 surround sound mixes; and a ‘Quadrasonic Album Mix’, which presents the original four-speaker mix of Imagine for the first time since release.

    This ultimate edition includes scores of demo recordings, rare outtakes and isolated track elements, all previously unheard. The box set also includes The Evolution Documentary, a track-by-track audio montage mixed by Sam Gannon which details the transition of each song from demo to master recording, with instructions, rehearsals, recordings, exploration of the multi-tracks and studio chatter. Further insight into this period in Lennon’s life comes with the Imagine John & Yoko: The Elliot Mintz Interviews disc, which features revealing conversations John and Yoko had with with the DJ and longtime friend, Elliot Mintz.

    Imagine will also be released concurrently as a 2CD deluxe edition, single CD remaster, a 2LP 180g heavyweight black vinyl edition and 2LP limited edition 180g clear vinyl edition. The digital Ultimate Collection will include all of the audio from the four CDs, and the deluxe and standard versions will also have digital equivalents.

    In the preface of the accompanying 120-page book, Yoko Ono Lennon says: “Imagine was created with immense love and concern for the children of the world. I hope you enjoy it.”


    Engineer Rob Stevens, who mixed the ‘Raw Studio Mixes’, recalls of the remarkable discovery that led to the creation of the new box set edition: “Early 2016, during the gestation period of this project, I’m in the Lenono archives with my people going through tape boxes that have labeling that’s unclear, misleading, or missing entirely.

    “There’s a 1” 8-track that says nothing more on the Ascot Sound label than John Lennon, the date, and the engineer [Phil McDonald], with ‘DEMO’ on the spine. No indication of what material was on the tape. One delicate transfer to digital later, the ‘Imagine’ demo, subsequently enhanced superbly by Paul Hicks, appears within this comprehensive set. It was true serendipity.”

    Stevens is describing an original, unheard demo of the famous title song from the album, Lennon’s sparse home recording on which he sings and plays piano. The release of this recording marks the global launch of Imagine: The Ultimate Collection, as it becomes available for streaming and for immediate download with all digital album pre-orders.

    5 October is also the release date on Eagle Vision of two films by John and Yoko, Imagine and Gimme Some Truth, on DVD, Blu-ray and digital platforms. Both have been hand-restored from the original film reels and remastered in HD; the film soundtracks have also been remixed in surround sound by triple Grammy-winning engineer Paul Hicks.

    Both of the physical releases feature never-before-seen extras, including previously unheard “raw” studio mixes and a fascinating insight into a photo shoot with celebrated photographer David Bailey. All are also available for pre-order. Imagine will also have a limited release in selected cinemas, highlighted by an exclusive, immersive Dolby Atmos mix of the music and further exclusive extra material.


    Says Paul Hicks of the new mixes of the album: “Yoko was very keen that these ‘Ultimate Mixes’ should achieve three things – to be totally faithful and respectful to the originals, be generally sonically clearer overall and should increase the clarity of John’s vocals. ‘It’s about John,’ she said. And she was right. His voice brings the biggest emotional impact to the album.” It was under the supervision of Yoko Ono Lennon, at Abbey Road Studios, that Hicks mixed the ‘Ultimate Mixes’, ‘Outtakes’ and ‘Elements Mixes’ of the collection.

    Newly-available material in the sets include a quartet of ‘Elements Mixes’, with strings-only versions of ‘Imagine’ and ‘How?’, the vocals-only versions of ‘Oh My Love’ and the piano, bass, and drums instrumentation for ‘Jealous Guy.’ The ‘Raw Studio Mixes’ on Disc Three capture John and the Plastic Ono Band on the soundstage of Ascot Sound Studios at John and Yoko’s Georgian country home in Tittenhurst, Berkshire.

    Alongside the new releases, Thames & Hudson (UK) and Grand Central Publishing (US) will publish Imagine John Yoko,by John and Yoko, on 9 October, which would have been John’s 78th birthday. The book has been personally compiled and curated by Yoko and is packed with previously unpublished material.
