Lennon Remasters In The Works

If it seems hard to grasp that it's been 30 years since John Lennon died, try wrapping your mind around the idea that he would be turning 70 this year - and probably speaking out against the Supreme Court decision to limit handgun restrictions had a deranged man not gunned him down outside of his New York City apartment building.  On October 9, the date he was born, the John Lennon solo catalog will be reissued.  In addition to the remastered versions of all albums, Double Fantasy, the album released the year he was shot, will include a second discwith multiple production tracks removed from the songs.  Yoko Ono said  listening to John's 'amazing vocals' with far fewer instruments surrounding it than on the original album was emotionally difficult for her.  The remastered versions of his seven solo releases can be bought individually or in a Signature Box Set with bonus material that bumps the disc total to 11 CDs.  While Beatles albums and songs still haven't been cleared for digital sale, the Lennon collection will be available as downloads starting October 5.
