**Does anyone have any feedback on the 2002 remixes that were done on a few of John's albums? I remember them coming out and they may have had bonus tracks as well. Then when the 2010 70th birthday releases came out, the bonus tracks went away and the mixes went back to John's original mixes. I never purchased any of the 2002 albums but heard that they actually were a big improvement over the originals. Especially Mind Games and Rock n Roll. I had always the production was poor on those 2 albums in their original form. The MG album has John's voice buried deep in the mix and those horrible generic sounding female backup singers. Anyways just wondering if anyone has heard them and if you would recommend searching them out.

* I've heard some of them and John's voice does stand out some more. But I guess the argument whice lead to going back to the orignal mixes for the 2010 reissues were that those were the ones that John approved of. I think the remix versions are out of print but you might be able to find at least some of the remixed songs on YouTube.

I liked them, but not enough to justify having them + Working Class Hero, which basically has most of my favorites, and is culled from those remixed albums.

Later on I picked up the Gimme Some Peace box set, and that about rounded it out. Not that I listen to any of it anymore - I think I've moved on from his solo stuff. It's all rather dated, except for Double Fantasy/Milk and Honey, sans Yoko. Second favorite (or is it third - I'm losing track) is Walls and Bridges, which has two of my favorite solo Lennon songs, #9 Dream and Steel and Glass. 9 is pretty much one of my favorite songs by anyone from any decade. Glass is all Lennon, dripping with anger and sarcasm - great stuff, as are the use of the sax.
