Lennon is a four-CD box set compilation, featuring highlights from the solo musical career of John Lennon. It was released in 1990 and is not to be confused with the 2015 box set of the same name, which comprised Lennon's eight original studio albums on vinyl LPs.

Compiled by Beatles historian Mark Lewisohn, Lennon includes his entire 1970 debut album Plastic Ono Band, selected tracks from his albums from Live Peace in Toronto 1969 through Menlove Ave., several non-album singles, live performances and other rarities.

Lennon never charted in the United Kingdom or United States and was deleted from Lennon's catalogue in the late 1990s.[citation needed]
