The tracklisting runs:

‘Imagine’
‘Watching The Wheels’
‘Jealous Guy’
‘Instant Karma! (We All Shine On)’
‘Stand By Me’
‘Working Class Hero’
‘Power To The People’
‘Oh My Love’
‘Oh Yoko!’
‘Nobody Loves You (When You’re Down And Out)’
‘Nobody Told Me’
‘Bless You’
‘Come Together (live)’
‘New York City’
‘I’m Stepping Out’
‘You Are Here’
‘Borrowed Time’
‘Happy Xmas (War Is Over)’
‘Woman’
‘Mind Games’
‘Out Of The Blue’
‘Whatever Gets You Thru The Night’
‘Love’
‘Mother’

‘Isolation’

I own Plastic Ono Band and Imagine but I'll probably pick this up if one of the B&M stores has a good first week price. Seems to be a pretty solid tracklisting.

Seems kind of redundant. All of these have been released in a greatest hits collection allready.

Jeez, how many Lennon compliations are needed? I personally really like the single-disc "LEGEND" from a while back; I've got that, the "Plastic Ono Band" CD and "Wonsaponatime" which was a single-disc best of of that rarities box set that came out a decade or so ago - that's enuff Lennon for me.

Which is why owning those two albums and a compilation like this makes perfect sense. IMHO.

I own the old John Lennon Collection album. It might be worth it to replace it with this. I also own Imagine and Plastic Ono Band and those are probably the only two individual albums I want. I really like Nobody Told Me and Woman Is The ****** Of The World though.

What about Double Fantasy? Great album, IMO.

Oh, and what's with the title? I never considered John Lennon to be a working class anything.
