*The 'Icon' CD.
*
*Just a few of his most well know tracks, most lifted off Double Fantasy. With the numerous compilations out there, all having at least double the # of tracks, this one is sure to end up in the bargain bin.
*
*The tracks are:
*
* 1. Imagine
* 2. (Just Like) Starting Over
* 3. Instant Karma! (We All Shine on)
* 4. Stand By Me
* 5. Watching the Wheels
* 6. Mind Games
* 7. Jealous Guy
* 8. Beautiful Boy (Darling Boy)
* 9. Love
* 10. Happy Xmas (War Is Over)
* 11. Give Peace a Chance
*
*
*And on Power to the People, a sampling off the new remastered box set, many more.
*
*Which had 15 hits on the CD, and 15 videos on the DVD - a much better sampling.
*
*
*Compare them to my favorite compilation, since it was garnered from the 2000 remastered/remixed CD's (I believe they were discontinued once the newly remastered CD's in 2010 hit the market):
*
*Disc: 1
* 1. (Just Like) Starting Over
* 2. Imagine
* 3. Watching The Wheels
* 4. Jealous Guy
* 5. Instant Karma!
* 6. Stand By Me
* 7. Working Class Hero
* 8. Power To The People
* 9. Oh My Love
* 10. Oh Yoko
* 11. Nobody Loves You When You're Down And Out
* 12. Nobody Told Me
* 13. Bless You
* 14. Come Together (Live)
* 15. New York City
* 16. I'm Stepping Out
* 17. You Are Here
* 18. Borrowed Time
* 19. Happy Xmas (War Is Over)
*
*Disc: 2
* 1. Woman
* 2. Mind Games
* 3. Out Of The Blue
* 4. Whatever Gets You Thru The Night
* 5. Love
* 6. Mother
* 7. Beautiful Boy (Darling Boy)
* 8. Woman Is The Nigger Of The World
* 9. God
* 10. Scared
* 11. #9 Dream
* 12. I'm Losing You (Anthology Version)
* 13. Isolation
* 14. Cold Turkey
* 15. Intuition
* 16. Gimme Some Truth
* 17. Give Peace A Chance
* 18. Real Love
* 19. Grow Old With Me
*
*38 tracks in all.
*
*The only other compilation that betters that is Gimme Me Some Truth, a comprehensive gathering from all the 2010 remastered albums, but not in chronological order, which can lend itself to a confusing listening experience.
*
*Disc: 1
* 1. Working Class Hero
* 2. Instant Karma! (We All Shine On)
* 3. Power To The People
* 4. God
* 5. I Don't Wanna Be a Soldier Mama I Donít Wanna Die
* 6. Gimme Some Truth
* 7. Sunday Bloody Sunday
* 8. Steel And Glass
* 9. Meat City
* 10. I Don't Wanna Face It
* 11. Remember
* 12. Woman Is The Nigger Of The World
* 13. I Found out
* 14. Isolation
* 15. Imagine
* 16. Happy Xmas (War Is Over)
* 17. Give Peace A Chance
* 18. Only People

* 14. Beef Jerky
* 15. Ya Ya
* 16. Hound Dog (Live)
* 17. Stand By Me
* 18. Here We Go Again
*
*Which is a staggering 72 tracks if anyone is counting.
*

The Icon series is good if someone is looking for an inexpensive introduction to a singer or group's work. But that's about it. I'd recommend the 2 CD compilation for anyone who wanted a nice introduction to John's post Beatles work.
