Reading the lyrics after so many years made me choke up. NOW OR NEVER! It works now. The lines “Are we gonna keep shooting the ones that try to change, Are we gonna keep thinking it won’t happen to us” were hard to read. When I wrote those lines, John and I were a proud and happy couple, believing that it would make a difference to speak out. And I think it did. I didn’t know that John was the one who would be shot to death for trying to change… But they couldn’t kill him. His spirit is still alive and growing inside all of us. yoko

A Message from Yoko Ono Lennon:
“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 programme 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. 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’.” – Yoko Ono Lennon

Yoko Ono has had four consecutive No. 1 hits on the Dance/Club song charts, heralding what she calls the “new era of Yoko Ono.” Surprisingly, she says this success originated from something akin to rebellion against her father.
Ono was only about four years old when her father, a brilliant pianist, decided she should have formal musical schooling in her home country of Japan. From there, she learned pitch, chords, harmony, melodies both in class and through frequent concerts given before parent-filled audiences.
