|A Tribute To John Lennon - Front Cover||Uncut Magazine - November 2002|
|The Beatles Contribution:||John Lennon - Inspiration.|
|Catalogue No.||UNCUT 2002 11|
|Release Date||October 2002|
|U.K. Album Chart Detail :||Does not qualify for chart inclusion.|
|Detail :||"Instant Karma 2002" is the given title of this essential tribute album to John Lennon.
Featuring rare and exclusive tracks, this C.D. was given away FREE with the November 2002 edition of Uncut Magazine.
The tracks on the whole are not copies of John's performances (some are), but are performed in the style of the artiste performing here. Stand-out tracks are Marianne Faithfull's "Working Class Hero", and Chrissie Hynde's beautiful rendition on The Pretenders version of "Bless You". There are many other fine interpretations of John's works, and I don't think any of the tracks are a stain on his memory ... search this album out, buy the magazine, it is worth it.
Uncut magazine is a fine mixture of Cinema and Music, and is a darn good read anyway.
