LENNON LEGEND – John Lennon (2003)

The CD of the same name was really just The John Lennon Collection repackaged for the Britpop generation, now rendered doubly redundant by the recent two-disc compilation. But there is much to recommend the DVD version. It's primarily a collection of video clips for all John's singles, with audio very tastefully remixed for 5.1. Many of the songs never had film clips when released, but John was such an avid home movie maker that there was ample footage to assemble clips from for the video world. Many have been made especially for this DVD.

Extras include a couple of live performances, some more home movie footage and animations of John's drawings. Great menus too!

  1. Thanks for the review. I was thinking about giving a DVD to my mother. She loves John Lennon and she has the CD not the DVD. I never saw this DVD before. You can see I am not a big fan of John Lennon. I mean, I like him but I don't buy his DVDS. I will look for it. Bless you.

  2. I guess it depends on if you're into music videos or not. Sometimes having a place to fix your eyes can help you to concentrate on the music more. Other times, it's just a distraction.
