Everything you need from Lennon's solo years, with only one song overlapping with Plastic Ono Band
Basically it contains all of John's songs from Double Fantasy
added on to the now-deleted 1975 singles collection Shaved Fish
. I haven't heard the albums that contain "Mind Games" or "#9 Dream", but I can tell you that those are two of Lennon's very best songs, particularly the gorgeous dreamy nonsense of the latter.
The political chants masquerading as songs "Give Peace A Chance" and "Power to the People" frankly annoy me, but are forces of nature and have their uses at rallies and such. Myself, I prefer the disco of "Whatever Gets You Through the Night", and the corrosive guitar stomp "Cold Turkey", a harrowing tale of heroin addiction.
