Album Review

The crown jewel in Apple/EMI’s extensive 2010 John Lennon remasters series, Signature Box contains all of the solo studio albums Lennon released during his lifetime (minus the trio of experimental duet LPs with Yoko Ono released on Apple and Zapple), his first posthumous album Milk and Honey, a disc of non-LP singles, a disc of home demos, but not the 2010 showcase item Double Fantasy Stripped Down, which is available only as a bonus on the indvidual reissue of Double Fantasy. It is, in other words, close enough to complete to perhaps invite a little bit of quibbling about what is absent — Live Peace in Toronto could fit in nicely with this batch and there are outtakes from Menlove Ave missing but the real niggling comes with the home demo disc, which emphasizes demos and alternate takes of songs from Plastic Ono Band and Imagine, leaving behind demos of songs Lennon gave away, including “I’m the Greatest” and “Goodnight Vienna,” which he handed over to Ringo, and songs that never made it to one of his records. Ultimately, this is nitpicking because Signature Box is handsomely produced and contains the best-sounding Lennon remasters — remastered by the team that did the acclaimed 2009 Beatles remasters, using the original mixes, not the recent remixes — which is enough to make this more than worthwhile for the serious Lennon fan.

Customer Reviews

A must-have!

There are no surprises here... Well, maybe a few. If you know this man and are a fan of his music, yet you don't have all of his albums, this is a worthy investment. Then you will have his main canon of songs, all of the studio albums he produced in his lifetime. The near-perfect first 2 solo albums, followed by the next few albums that Hesiod in the midst of his struggle to stay in America and to reconcile with his wife, on through to his doomed comeback. It's all here, and I'm not bothering to mention album and song titles because, if you're here, you know John and what he did. The real gem here is the unreleased Home Demos cd, featuring mainly out takes from his first 2 albums, which are his most prolific releases, but also having some demos from 1980 as well. All in all, this is a great new digital mix and you can own it for a reasonable price and just sit back all day and listen to what john did from the time he left The Beatles up until the end of his life. Buy it!

Biography

Genre: Rock

Out of all the Beatles, John Lennon had the most interesting -- and frustrating -- solo career. Lennon was capable of inspired, brutally honest confessional songwriting and melodic songcraft; he also had an undying love of straight-ahead rock & roll. But the extremes, both in his music and his life, were what made him fascinating. Where Paul McCartney was content to be a rock star, Lennon dabbled in everything from revolutionary politics to the television talk-show circuit during the early '70s....
