Back when they were Fab, Beatles albums were always about the singles. So in a way, it's entirely appropriate that the biggest part of the buzz surrounding the release of "The Beatles Anthology 1" (Capitol 34445, two CDs, arriving in stores today) is a single.It's not just any single, though. "Free as a Bird" was originally recorded as a demo by John Lennon in 1977, although what he put on tape was not a finished song, but a rough sketch.Earlier this year, Paul McCartney, George Harrison and Ringo Starr came together and finished it, added vocals and instrumental arrangement and a couple of verses.

You may say John Lennon was a dreamer. But he was not the only one.Among those moved by "Imagine," the songwriter's paean to "a brotherhood of man," were Terry and Linda Bosley of Ocean City. With the tidy sum that Mr. Bosley had earned as a record-breaking real estate salesman, they bought a 41-foot sailing yacht, named it Imagine, and set out with their three preteen children in search of freedom, adventure, new lands, pure waters and "above us only sky."Twenty years after the song caught their fancy and their boat got its name, the Bosleys are back home in Maryland.

More than just one of the most popular musicians and songwriters of the 20th century, John Lennon was a talented and respected artist. The former Beatle, who attended the Liverpool Art Institute for three years, loved art and continued to draw throughout his lifetime. Fans of Lennon can take a glimpse into his artistic soul at the exhibit The Artwork of John Lennon: In My Life, on display Friday, Saturday and June 25 at a warehouse in Alexandria, Va. Lennon's widow Yoko Ono presents the touring exhibit, which features more than 100 original drawings, hand-signed pieces and limited-edition prints of works created between 1968 and 1980.

Does the name Linda Greenwood ring a bell? How about David Burnell or Joshua Brown? No? Well, how about John Lennon?Ahh. Him you've heard of. Caught four slugs from a .38 10 years ago and died. There was quite a to-do at the time, as I recall.There were candle-lighting ceremonies in which people stood and bowed their heads for 10 minutes of silence. And there were lots of stories. Lots and lots of stories about the Beatle who got killed.Linda Greenwood and those other people I mentioned were gunned down the same day John Lennon was. But there was no to-do over them.

Think of John Lennon, and a flood of images comes to mind: Beatle John, standing on stage with a sly smile or dropping sly non sequiturs at an airport press conference; Hippie John,in long hair and granny glasses; Anti-War John, holed up in bed with Yoko Ono and several dozen members of the press, singing "Give Peace a Chance"; House-Husband John, baking bread and playing with his infant son, Sean.Still, the one image that refuses to materialize is that of John Lennon at 50.Granted, it's not something any of us will ever see. Mark David Chapman saw to that, one cold December night 10 years ago in the shadows outside New York's Dakota Apartments.
