Power To The People: The Hits [CD/DVD]

Editorial Reviews

All Music Guide - Stephen Thomas Erlewine
Released as part of Apple/EMI's extensive 2010 John Lennon remasters series, the single-disc Power to the People: The Hits covers familiar territory, but then again, that's the point of this collection. It's not designed to dig deep into John's catalog, it's designed as the latest iteration of the canon, replacing 1997's Lennon Legend, the last big-budget single-disc compilation. Power to the People is five cuts shorter than Lennon Legend, ditching album cuts "Love" and "Borrowed Time," swapping the charting singles "Mother" and "Nobody Told Me," for the non-charting "Gimme Some Truth" and the actual number 18 hit "Mind Games," but the end result is the same: ...

The remasters are excellent, so if you are in need of a tight Lennon comp, this is a good choice, but if you already have a hits collection, there's no reason to replace it. [There is also a Deluxe Edition of Power to the People which contains videos for all 15 songs, some of them original clips and some of them edits of footage assembled after the single's initial release.]

    Another best of or greatest hits collection of John Lennon

    John Lennon was the most famous and influential artist of the 20th Century. Without John Lennon, the Beatles would never exist. Thirty after his death on December 8, 1980, his music and his spirit is still alive. In addition to the Signature Box Set which I bought it for Christmas, I bought the new greatest hits collection, Power to the People: The Hits (CD/DVD). It includes all of the best known hits that John Lennon recorded as a solo artist. If you bought the other best of or greatest hits collections like The John Lennon Collection, Lennon Legend: The Very Best of John Lennon, and Working Class Hero: The Definitive Lennon, then you can add this to your best of or greatest hits to your cd collection.
