From RNZ Music, 9:00 am on 9 October 2010

October 9th 2010 would have been John Lennon's 70th birthday. To mark the occasion Yoko Ono and EMI released various compilations of Lennon's solo work and a box set of all his studio albums. It's the first time that Lennon's original mixes have been remastered for CD. Plus, there's Double Fantasy Stripped Down - a new bare bones remix of the last John & Yoko album released before his death in 1980. Beatles nut Jeremy Ansell speaks with music writer Graham Reid about the 'Gimme Some Truth' project.
