***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

*** 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

***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.
**
*I take it you are referring to Working Class Hero?
*

Well I think that Working Class Hero is probably the best intro for someone who wants to start exploring John's solo work. The Gimme Some Truth set might be a little too in depth for a newbie Lennon fan.

The Icon compilation is good mainly if someone is either on a low budget or cheap and wants to own a handful of John Lennon songs.
