Lennon is a four-CD boxed set featuring many of John Lennon's solo songs and was released in 1990.

Compiled by the foremost authority on the Beatles, Mark Lewisohn, Lennon emcompasses generous samples from his single-only releases, and his albums from Live Peace in Toronto 1969 to Menlove Ave.

Lennon, which never charted in the United Kingdom or United States, was deleted from Lennon's catalogue in the late 1990s.
