This is not a greatest hits – this is a prophetic love letter from the past. From one of the world’s best known artists, by one of Canada’s most underrated singer songwriters. A uniquely tender tribute to honour what would have been John Lennon’s 80th birthday (Oct 9), and the 40th anniversary of his murder (Dec 8) – as if 2020 wasn’t hard enough to take. This project began as a prescription from Reid’s wife and creative partner, to help him stave off intense depression as his career hopes were crushed by a global pandemic. Reid found solace in the hauntingly relevant words of one of his greatest influences – not just in music – but in his commitment to love. Maybe you will too. Stripped naked with only nylon string guitar, uke, harmonica and heartbreakingly pure vocals, it includes 7 solo John Lennon songs, 1 Beatles, and one eulogy by Elton John. Amore Solum Opus Est.
