Credited to John Lennon
This album of T.V. advertised hits was originally planned in 1981, but it was delayed by the difficulties of getting permission to use the Double Fantasy tracks. But, when it finally did emerge, it had massive sales. 300,000 copies were sold in the U.K. in just the first week, and by the third it had topped one million, therefore averaging over 55,000 sales per day !
The cover was designed by Chris Whorf with photographs by Annie Leibovitz. The pictures had been taken at John's last
official photographic session in December 1980 for Rolling Stone.
