A must-have for "Mind Games"

"Yes, there are more complete collections. Yes, it's worth having for the album art. But here's my main reason for recommending "Shaved Fish": it contains the original mix of the song "Mind Games." The remixed reissue of the "Mind Games" album is a travesty, especially the title track, which has had all the majesty sucked out of it. If you want to hear the original, enthralling "Mind Games" track, get "Shaved Fish.""
Lennons own greatest hits

"John Lennon was a genius. That much is a given. With the beatles he helped craft the seminal sound of a generation. Their career has been constantly repackaged into greatest hits collections. However, this greatest hits collection is Lennon's own selection of his solo hits. The gem of this collection is the non-album single Instant Karma, which some of the less educated may know as Shine On. Lennon's other selected hits include the classic Imagine, the cathartic Mother and my favorite Christmas song of all time Happy Xmas(War is Over). Bottom line is, if your a Beatles/Lennon fan, please buy this disc"
