Re-mastered John Lennon albums are set to be released in time to coincide with what would have been the electric guitar player's 70th birthday.

His record label EMI has announced that fans will be able to hear the work of the electric guitarist in a new way with the release of a remixed version of Double Fantasy Stripped Down.

Other albums will include extra tracks that were cut over the years as the songs made the transition from vinyl to cassette and finally CD, with Some Time in New York City to include six live jam recordings that were included in the album's original track listing.

In addition, a new single-CD collection of his most popular solo tunes entitled Power to the People: The Hits will reach the shelves alongside the other albums on October 4th in the UK and October 5th in the US.

American fans will also have the chance to attend a special concert held by Yoko Ono in Los Angeles and featuring acts including Lady Gaga and Pharrell Williams to celebrate Lennon's life.
