John Lennon - Lennon Legend: The Very Best of John Lennon: Wikipedia Album Entry
Lennon Legend: The Very Best of John Lennon is the third official compilation album of John Lennon's solo career, coming after 1975's Shaved Fish and 1982's The John Lennon Collection. Because neither collection spanned Lennon's releases up to and including 1984's Milk and Honey, Lennon Legend: The Very Best of John Lennon - considered the definitive Lennon retrospective - was compiled to rectify the situation. It was released in the UK in 1997 and early 1998 in the United States.
Lennon Legend: The Very Best of John Lennon peaked at #3 on the UK Albums Chart and certified 2x Platinum by the BPI in May 1998. The album has also certified Platinum in the U.S. and Canada as of December 2008. In the history of Japanese Oricon chart, Lennon Legend has been one of the longest charting albums that failed to reach top-40, selling more than 190,000 copies up to late 2006.
The album re-entered the UK Chart on 18 June 2007, almost 10 years after its release, at #30. The album also appeared in a commercial for Apple's iPod touch.
Same titled DVD was also released in 2003 as a series of remastered, remixed & new music videos with Dolby Digital 5.1 Surround Sound audio mixes (See Lennon Legend: The Very Best of John Lennon DVD).
