Music critic Tom Moon has an overview of two boxed sets of compact discs: the much-anticipated "The Lennon Anthology," which compiles the work of John Lennon, and Bruce Springsteen's "Tracks," a collection of songs that did not make it onto Springsteen's albums. Moon says that both provide insight into how these singers engaged in the songwriting process. "The Lennon Anthology" is available from Capitol Records: "Tracks" by Bruce Springsteen is available from Columbia Records.
