John Lennon 'Gimme Some Truth. The Ultimate Mixes' Box Set Announced

Wednesday, 26 August 2020 Written by Jon Stickler

A new John Lennon box set is on the way.

Capitol/Universal Music will release 'Gimme Some Truth. The Ultimate Mixes' on October 9, what would have been John Lennon's 80th birthday.

Compiled and executive produced by his wife Yoko Ono and son Sean Ono Lennon, the set will feature 36 Lennon solo tracks remixed from scratch by Paul Hicks and engineer Sam Gannon using vintage analog equipment at Henson Recording Studio in Los Angeles. Alex Wharton mastered them at London's iconic Abbey Road Studios, also using analog equipment.

"Yoko is very keen that in making The Ultimate Mixes series we achieve three things: remain faithful and respectful to the originals, ensure that the sound is generally sonically clearer overall and increase the clarity of John’s vocals," Hicks wrote in a statement about the release. "It's about John,’ she says. And she is right. His voice brings the biggest emotional impact to the songs."

The collection will be available in various formats with a deluxe edition coming with a 124-page book containing interviews, as well as unseen photographs, postcards and lyric sheets, among other exclusive items.

As a preview, listen to the Ultimate Mix of Instant Karma! (We All Shine On) below.
