||LENNON’S 65TH BIRTHDAY TO BE COMMEMORATED BY CD SET
The 65th anniversary of John Lennon’s birth will be commemorated by Capitol Records October 4 when Working Class Hero – The Definitive Lennon hits store shelves. The two-CD set, executive produced by Yoko Ono, will offer a 38-song collection of Lennon’s hit singles and key album tracks.
The collection, which was mastered from the best available sources, includes material from John Lennon/Plastic Ono Band, Imagine, Sometime In New York City, Mind Games, Walls and Bridges, Rock ‘N’ Roll, Double Fantasy, Live in New York City, Milk and Honey, and Anthology.
Ono released the following statement regarding the new collection:
“Everyone has been asking me recently if this year will be extra special for me since it's John's 65th birthday year and the 25th anniversary of that awful day. There isn't a day that goes by when I don't think about John. But still, it is very special for me too to think of John at 65, and to think what he would be doing if he was here now.
“I can immediately see that he would be very, very angry at what's going on in the world today. Oh, yes. Violence, accelerated corporate manipulations and lies. He wanted the world to be a beautiful place for all of us. But it seems we have a long way to go yet for that.
“Once he was honored as “The Man Of The Decade”. That was 35 years ago. Now he is a man of the century and the future. His work inspires all people, and his voice reaches the whole planet.
“I miss him a lot. We all miss him. His songs are now our songs, our love, and our life.
“John made some great songs with beautiful music and daring words. He laid his life on the line to speak out the truth for all of us.
“Enjoy this incredible selection of songs of wisdom and power, and know that John is now in the heart of each of us, helping to heal ourselves and our planet.
“I love you, John. You are the one and only. Yoko”.
