In an official statement, Yoko Ono said: "In this very special year, which would have seen my husband and life partner John reach the age of 70, I hope that this remastering / reissue program will help bring his incredible music to a whole new audience."

"By remastering 121 tracks spanning his solo career, I hope also that those who are already familiar with John's work will find renewed inspiration from his incredible gifts as a songwriter, musician and vocalist and from his power as a commentator on the human condition," Yoko continued.

"His lyrics are as relevant today as they were when they were first written and I can think of no more apposite title for this campaign than those simple yet direct words 'Gimme Some Truth'."

John Lennon's "Gimme Some Truth" campaign launches in October 2010 with the worldwide release of remastered versions of eight of Lennon's solo albums:

John Lennon/Plastic Ono Band (1970)

Imagine (1971)

Some Time In New York City (1972)

Mind Games (1973)

Walls and Bridges (1974)

Rock 'n' Roll (1975)

Milk and Honey (1984)

Double Fantasy Stripped Down (2010) / Double Fantasy (1980)
(See more information below)

The albums have been digitally remastered from Lennon's original mixes by Yoko Ono and a team of engineers led by Allan Rouse at EMI Music's Abbey Road Studios in London and by George Marino at Avatar Studios in New York. All of the remastered titles will be packaged in digisleeves with replicated original album art and booklets with photos and new liner notes by noted British music journalist Paul Du Noyer.

 

 

Double Fantasy Stripped Down
(New mix and original recording remastered)

 

The original Double Fantasy album was released on November 17, 1980, less than one month before John Lennon's tragic murder. The album was a joint collaboration between Lennon and his wife, Yoko Ono, with each getting the same number of songs on the album.

Double Fantasy Stripped Down is a 2-CD set featuring both the studio version of Double Fantasy and the unreleased "stripped down" version of the album. The cover art is Sean Lennon's original drawing of the Double Fantasy cover.

13) Every Man Has A Woman Who Loves Him (Yoko Ono)
14) Hard Times Are Over (Yoko Ono)

Double Fantasy won the 1980 Grammy Award for Album of the Year.

Yoko Ono commented: "Double Fantasy Stripped Down really allows us to focus our attention on John's amazing vocals. Technology has advanced so much that, conversely, I wanted to use new techniques to really frame these amazing songs and John's voice as simply as possible.

By stripping down some of the instrumentation the power of the songs shines through with an enhanced clarity. Double Fantasy Stripped Down will be complemented by the original album in the 2CD format. It was whilst working on the new version of this album that I was hit hardest emotionally, as this was the last album John released before his passing."
