Dear Friends

In this very special year, which would have seen my husband and lifetime partner John Lennon reach the age of 70, I was surprised that so many musicians from all over the world sent me their ideas of how they were making a tribute to John this year. But I was surprised the most by a call from EMI presenting me with a very ambitious project to get John Lennon’s voice – his singing, his music and his lyrics – out to the world this year. Their serious and voluminous plan was daring. Not only remastering the albums, but also adding unreleased recordings, a book, repackaging, artwork, collages, prints, and well researched essays & liner notes. They have not done anything like this in their company ever. They had such enthusiasm and respect for John’s work, his music and his voice. I immediately dropped everything and joined the effort.

Going to Abbey Road every day and remastering the songs from his individual albums & singles – 121 of them – was very trying as a personal and professional experience. I took the challenge because it was for John. And because I believe in his work. John Lennon, the one who put together a band and coined the word The Beatles, and later freed himself to yet another level of creativity, was a miracle given to this world. I knew then that this was the most important thing I could do this year – to do the best i can do to bring his voice of great power, energy and wisdom to the people now.

His voice could help us change the world for the better that is now in confusion and sadness. Just listening to his magical voice of truth will give each one of us the encouragement and inspiration we need now. GIMME SOME TRUTH. Truth is a serum that is lacking in our lives. I would like to give the power of truth through John’s voice to the politicians of the world now, most of whom are suffering as many of us are – from confusion created by incredible complications the kind the human race has never before encountered.

It was a joyful and painful experience at the same time for me as I worked, since I kept having the urge to tell John in person how much I still respected him and loved him as a fellow musician, listening to what he had done on every turn so effortlessly.

One day, one of the guys came up with an incredible re-mastering of a rough take. He managed to make John’s voice sound like John again by doing a thorough cleaning of the track, which was destroyed in the process of many reissues in the past thirty/forty years. “Hey, that one was too good for you. Maybe John was helping you” – I said it as a kind of reverse compliment to the guy who did it. But it was also true that all the time we were working, I felt that John was with us looking over our shoulders. “John, am I doing right?” I kept asking in the middle of the night when I repeated in my mind about the things I did that day to his work.

It was great to get back together with Jack Douglas in New York and work together on Double Fantasy Stripped Down, which we originally co-produced with John. This new version 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. 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.

I believe strongly that John wanted his voice to come out for the people and for the world, which is feeling the depletion of energy on many levels. Depletion starts in our minds, our spirit and our soul. So wake yourself up by listening to John’s voice. Enjoy. Dance with it in your heart. Keep John close to you. He loves you.

love, yoko

JOHN LENNON 70th Anniversary – Signature Box, Gimme Some Truth, Power To The People (The Hits), all studio albums Remastered to John’s original mixes & Double Fantasy ‘Stripped Down’: coming October 2010

JOHN LENNON – GIMME SOME TRUTH

“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

Eight of John Lennon’s classic solo albums and other standout recordings have been digitally remastered from his original mixes for a global catalogue initiative commemorating the music legend’s 70th birthday, which falls on October 9, 2010.

Double Fantasy, 1980’s GRAMMY Award winner for Album of the Year, will be presented in a newly remixed ‘Stripped Down’ version remixed and produced by Yoko Ono and Jack Douglas, co-producers of the original mix with John Lennon. The new stripped down version of the album comes in an expanded 2CD and digital edition pairing the new version with Lennon’s original mix, remastered.

The campaign’s other new collections include:

  • A hits compilation in two editions titled Power To The People: The Hits
  • A 4CD set of themed discs titled Gimme Some Truth
  • A deluxe 11CD collectors box with the remastered albums, rarities, and non-album singles, titled The John Lennon Signature Box

31 Responses to IMAGINEPEACE.com Exclusive: Yoko Ono talks about JOHN LENNON remasters coming this October

  1. Tenho quase tudo dos Beatles, porém do John Lennon somente em vinil. Segundo Lucas Teixeira da Silva, Minas Novas MG, a canção “IMAGINE” do mister John Lennon é um hino mundial e letra atualizadíssima “Você pode dizer que eu sou um sonhador mas não sou o único”. Lucas disse que “Rei é Rei. Original e ninguém copia”, ocasião que morava em BH, tornando-se também fã do Rei Roberto Carlos e a Jovem Guarda.

    Yoko,
    You did such a wonderful job on this project. I am enjoying the music and memories. Thank you for keeping John’s spirit alive. You are right when you say that John is still here. He lives on through his art and music. This is the greatest gift that a man could give humanity. Thank you from the bottom of my heart.

  3. Lawrence says:

    “We Remember John”

    He lived his life for peace not war
    for hope not dread, never did he
    look back only straight ahead

    He Imagine Peace no animosity

    on through the peace in our lives, when we
    chose right over wrong he still lives through

  9. DSipple says:

    I’ve often wondered about how our world situation may have been different..a bit better..had John still been with us. I know he would have made his voice heard.
    I thank you for the work that you have done over the years and continue to do so; creating peace awareness through your love. It will be good to hear the remixes, and it is timely that John’s voice will be brought to the forefront during this profound time in our history. Thank you..
    Be Love,
    Deborah

  10. John died 8 days before my son was born. I loved John so much. I think my son in the womb could feel my sorrow. And during my son’s last months in his life he hung onto every word said and sung by John. My son died around John’s birthday in 2006. James would ne 30 in December, 2010. They are. Forever Young. John and James.

  11. wenreddy says:

    John was a champion for a higher view. He has been one of my role models of how to be a beacon for sanity of spirit. I weep with tears of sadness for the loss the world has sustained and tears of joy for the mind boggling principle of the universe that chose to share him with us.
    Imagine!

  12. Cat Catalyst says:

    The Truth, The Whole Truth and nothing but The Truth, so help me God/dess

  13. yoko so good to know that you care so much about all of us…it will be wounderful to here johns voice again anew; i do still listen to his and your older songs, and i must say there is really something very strong in his voice, oh the older songs don’t really seem to be old to me even though i have listen to them for 35 or more years! i do feel him to be very close at times that must be the love he has for all of us, his voise will up-lift us all from all the things going in the world today i wounder what he is saying about it all now; somewere in the universe. i’m sure he will let you know in some little way. thank you so much yoko i love you; susan

  14. jose arturo says:

    Grandiosa noticia.
    Espero que Yoko haga donaciones de las ganancias de la nueva edición a causas por la paz o contra la guerra, o para universidades de países pobre como México.

    Please, Yoko, give some money for universities from poor countries like Mexico, etc.

    • Oscar says:

      Universities for poor countries like Mexico ? That could be really misleading for people who don’t know what Mexico really is. In the first place, there are countries that are much poorer than Mexico, and second, asking Yoko (who I don’t think will read your comment anyway) won’t make it happen. JUST ENJOY THE MUSIC and don’t try to turn this into something political.
      God bless JL

  15. Mick Francis says:

    I never new the man but, God, do I miss him xx

  17. bluefalken says:

    I really hope it is affordable given the economic reality we live in now! I’ll have to $ave for it.
    The idea of the remixing and remastering definitely makes it sound worthwhile and add the nostalgia value to it; yes!!!

  18. sposato says:

    Looking forward to this. Hope that Menlove Ave. and Live in New York City will be reissued as well.

  19. Will there be vinyl editions? Hoping so…

  20. Armands says:

    Some realy nice music! Thanks yoko!

  21. Tom Cartman says:

    Gee, Yoko… I wish some of these were being released on LP. CD just misses something of the warmth of the albums. The originals go for stupid prices on eBay. It would be nice to get these re-mastered editions in beautiful vinyl. :(

  22. BP and MrPresident: All we the people want is “Gimme Some Truth” …nothing seems to change but art.

  23. Rutger Holtman says:

    I can’t wait for the box, imagine it already;)

  24. Me encanto esta noticia !! :)

  25. JUST GIMME SOME TRUTH…ALL I WANT IS SOME TRUTH NOW.
