The crown jewel in Apple/EMIís extensive 2010 John Lennon remasters series, Signature Box contains all of the solo studio albums Lennon released during his lifetime (minus the trio of experimental duet LPs with Yoko Ono released on Apple and Zapple), his first posthumous album Milk and Honey, a disc of non-LP singles, a disc of home demos, but not the 2010 showcase item Double Fantasy Stripped Down, which is available only as a bonus on the indvidual reissue of Double Fantasy. It is, in other words, close enough to complete to perhaps invite a little bit of quibbling about what is absent — Live Peace in Toronto could fit in nicely with this batch and there are outtakes from Menlove Ave missing but the real niggling comes with the home demo disc, which emphasizes demos and alternate takes of songs from Plastic Ono Band and Imagine, leaving behind demos of songs Lennon gave away, including ìIím the Greatestî and ìGoodnight Vienna,î which he handed over to Ringo, and songs that never made it to one of his records. Ultimately, this is nitpicking because Signature Box is handsomely produced and contains the best-sounding Lennon remasters — remastered by the team that did the acclaimed 2009 Beatles remasters, using the original mixes, not the recent remixes — which is enough to make this more than worthwhile for the serious Lennon fan.

Singer, writer, poet, and composer, the Beatles' most committed rockartist. With his social conscience, cynical wit, and willingness toexperiment, John Lennon was in constant conflict with conservativevalues. The poet and novelist Philip Arthur Larkin described theBeatles' work as 'an enchanting and intoxicating hybrid of Negrorock-and-roll with their own adolescent romanticism', and 'the firstadvance in popular music since the War.' Many of the group's lyrics(e.g. Desktop board. 'Penny Lane', 'Eleanor Rigby', 'She's Leaving Home') had aconsiderable influence on the success of the Liverpool Poets (AdrianHenri, Roger McGough, Brian Patten) and the Underground poetrymovement.
'I'm a moldy moldy man..' (from In His Own Write, 1964)
John Lennon was born in Liverpool, Merseyside, into a working classfamily. His parents, Julia and Alfred (Freddie), separated before hewas two, and Lennon went to live with his mother's sister, Mimi Smith.Freddie spent much time at sea. After serving some time in prison, hisfuture in the merchant navy was finished, and he worked then in oddjobs, often as a pot scrubber or pan scourer in hotel kitchens. Lennonattended Liverpool's Dovedale Primary School and later the Quarry BankHigh School. Only late in life, Lennon discovered that his lifelonginability to spell and tendency to transform one word into another ofsimilar sound was a sign of dyslexia. In 1955 he started a skifflegroup, called the Quarrymen, which took the name from his school.During these years Lennon wrote a book which he called the Daily Howl– a kind of newspaper with little jokes and cartoons. When Lennon was17, his mother was killed in an accident. She was knocked down by acar, driven by a police officer, who was driving without a license.'I've no responsibility to anyone now,' Lennon recalled his bitterthoughts after Julia's death.
In the summer of 1956 Lennon met Paul McCartney and they began towrite songs together. In Hamburg, where the Beatles played in the early1960s, they learned to play as a band, eventually becoming 'morepopular than Jesus,' in Lennon's words. But the time meant also asexual awakening for them. 'We were baptised in Hamburg because therewere the girls,' McCartney said in Barry Miles biography. When BillHarry launched the Mersey Beat in Liverpool in the summer of 1961, Lennon wrote for the paper. He admired the column 'Beachcomber' in the Daily News and created his own 'Beatcomber.'
In His Own Write (1964), Lennon's first book, was partlybased on material he had made while still at school. Its alternativetitles were among others The Transistor Negro, Left Hand Left Hand (after Osbert Sitwell's Left Hand Right Hand) and Stop One and Buy Me.Lennon signed the contract in January 1964 and the book - with 31pieces of writing and enough drawings – was published three monthslater on March 23, 1964. Introduction was written by Paul McCartney andthe work was designed by Robert Freeman. By January 1965 it had soldnearly 200 000 copies. (Source: John Savage, introduction in Pimlico double edition, 1997) Lennon once said, that he had always wanted to write Alice in Wonderland. Another favorite was James Joyce's Finnegans Wake, 'so way out and so different.'A Spaniard in the Works, Lennon's second book, was published onJune 24, 1965. It went through four impressions and sold 100 000 copieswithin three month, not so well as the first. 'There are some storiesand bits in it that even I don't understand,' Lennon later revealed.Young readers hailed the books as a new and inspiring way of writing,but actually Lennon followed in the footsteps of the French surrealists of the 1920s.
'I hardly ever alter anything because I'mselfish about what I write, or big-headed about it. Once I've writtenit, I like it. And the publisher sometimes says, 'Should we leave thisout, or change that?' and I fight like mad, because once I've done it Iliker to keep it. But I always write it straight off. I might addthings when I go over it before it's published, but I seldom takeanything out. So it is spontaneous.' (from The Beatles Anthology, 2000)
Meeting the Maharishi Mahesh Yogi, writer of The Science of Being and the Art of Living,helped Lennon to abandon booze and some drugs for a short time. In 1968the Beatles flew from England to India, where they joined the maharashiat his meditation center, which was built for rich foreigners. Indianculture had already inspired the Beatniks of the 1950s. This traditionwas continued by a number of the hippies of the next decade whoconsidered India their spiritual home. The Beatles' pilgrimage waswidely commented by the media, especially when Lennon admitted, 'Wemade a mistake,' when he returned back to England. However, during thisperiod the group wrote most of the White Album. After 1969,which was the final year of Lennon's activities with theBeatles, he grew closer to his second wife Yoko Ono, whom he married in1969. They arranged much publicity for peace movement by staying in bedwhile being filmed and interviewed, and their single with Plastic OnoBand 'Give Peace a Chance' (1969) became the 'national anthem' forpacifist. John himself was no angel, he could be violent, provocative,mean – and he was far from a model father. 'They want me to belovable,' Lennon had said in an interview. 'But I was never that.' In1974 at L.A.'s Troubadour Club, after allegedly assaulting the managerof the Smothers Brothers and a waitress, he was thrown out onto thestreet.
'What we're really doing,' said John, 'issending out a message to the world, mainly to the youth, to anybody whois interested in protesting for peace or protesting any form ofviolence.' John summoned up the message in one colloquial phase: 'Givepeace a chance.'

As the phasing of John's famous chantsuggests, the model for all the Lennon's peace propaganda was MadisonAvenue advertising. John believed deeply in the power of images andslogans to affect the mass mind. He was sure that during his years as aBeatle he had mastered the techniques of manipulating the media, and ofcourse, he had a very able partner in this work in Yoko Ono.. (from The Lives of John Lennon by Albert Goldman, 1988)
From 1968 to 1969 Lennon recorded Two Virgins, Life With the Lions, The Wedding Album and Plastic Ono Band, but generally agreed his best solo album was Imagine,which appeared in 1970. In the 1970s Lennon emerged as a significantpolitical threat to the Nixon administration. He planned in the summerof 1972 a concert tour to rouse the youth against the Vietnam war.Parts of the FBI's Lennon file, dealing with his ties with anti-warmovement, was kept secret for reasons of 'national security' until2006.
When Mind Games appeared in 1973, John was not living withYoko. He had moved to Los Angeles with May Pang, his wife's formersecretary. In 'Bless You' from Walls and Bridges (1974) hewrote: 'Some people say it's over,' and in 'Scared' he confessed:'Hatred and jealousy / gonna be the death of me'. By January 1975 Johnand Yoko were living together once more. On the birth of his son Sean(1975-), Lennon retired from music, and plunged in a self-destructivelife-style like Elvis Presley, whose 'Heartbreak Hotel' had made him arocker at the age of fifteen. Lennon used Thai sticks, or heroin, leftrarely his bed, and complained about television, his chronicindigestion, or the soap in the kitchen. After a long period ofhibernation, Lennon released with Yoko Ono in 1980 Double Fantasy which won a Grammy forthe Album of the Year.
Jonh Lennon was murdered on December 8, 1980, in New York. His deathaffected millions of people. John Lennon continues to be admired by newgenerations of fans – as a troubled Jesus-like figure, icon of thepeace-movement, drug-using rebel, hard rocker, and a song writer whohad more to say than the simple 'Ob-La-Di, Ob-La-Da.'
'After his death, Linda and I went roundto Yoko's and we all cried so hard, you know, we had to laugh. Shewanted to get us something to eat and she mentioned caviar. We allsaid, 'Let's do it.' Her houseman brought it in, mumbling, and hebacked out and there was the caviar tin with just a little bit in thebottom. Her servants had eaten it all!' (from Paul McCartney: Many Years from Now by Barry Miles, 1997)
