I actually feel really bad for buying it.

John & Yoko's wedding album couldn't possibly BE more worthless.

The "Wedding Album" is the third and final installment of John Lennon and Yoko Ono's avant-garde albums. Originally released in late 1969, this album is an audio souvenir of John and Yoko's much publicised marriage and subsiquent 'bed-in's for peace'. The original LP came in a box which included a booklet of press clippings, a photo of a piece of wedding cake, two posters of John and Yoko's photos and artwork and a reproduction of their marriage certificate. Some of the above items are reproduced in the artwork for the CD.
As for the album itself, many would dismiss the so-called music as pure self-indulgence. The original album included just two long tracks. The first was "John and Yoko". During this track's 22 and 1/2 minute duration, John and Yoko take turns calling out each other's name in every possible inflection. Additionally, the sound's of John and Yoko's heartbeats add an awkward hynotic 'rhythm' to the piece.
The second track is the 25-minute "Amsterdam". This track is an audio collage of John and Yoko's honeymoon in Amsterdam, Holland. It begins with Yoko wailing the word "Peace" while John whispers and shouts in the background. This is followed by an interesting interview between John, Yoko and the Dutch press. Other highlights include the sounds of John and Yoko departing from a jet airplane and John ordering room service from his hotel room. "Amsterdam" is like listening to a movie without the picture.
Like their other two avant-garde works, "Wedding Album" is more of a collectors piece than it is an essential title. The original LP box set is well worth searching out but can be very expensive depending on its condition. The CD is a well worthy substitute and is a must if your a Beatle collector.

It's essential for mega-fans, but I would suggest getting the afore-mentioned "Two Virgins," "Life With the Lions," "Plastic Ono Band," or even "Season of Glass" first. Yes, "John & Yoko" is just that..."John!!! Yoko!!! John!!! Yoko!!! John, John!! Yoko, Yoko, Yoko!" for about 20 minutes (estimate) but it is so much more. It seems an effort at pure emotional expression without the contempt that "Cambridge 1969" received. "John & Yoko" is very interesting with excellent instrumental backing, just not as interesting as other Yoko Ono songs. "Amsterdam" begins with a short improvised song recorded during their honeymoon "Bed-In" in Amsterdam. Basically, it's "Peeeeeeeace. Let's hope for Peeeeeeeace." It then goes on to a quite fun interview with John and Yoko explaining their "Bed-In" to baffled reporters. They talk about the idiocy of "getting peace through violence" (their method being much less of an oxymoron) and other various topics, all with the ultimate goal of ending the stupid Vietnam War. Followed, as all re-released Yoko Ono albums by bonus tracks. "Who Has Seen the Wind?" was brilliantly played by the unknown backing musicians and stands as yet another anthem of John and Yoko's love. "Listen the Snow Is Falling" is by the usual Plastic Ono Band and is also brilliantly played and overdubbed with snow and wind sound effects. "Don't Worry Kyoko (Mummy's Only Looking For Her Hand in the Snow)" is a much earlier home demo with just her and John on guitar and is much easier to take (2:30) than the seventeen-minute tour de force of the version on "Sometime in New York City." "Wedding Album" is a must for any established Yokophile.

Format: Audio CD Verified Purchase
The third in a series of anti-popstar releases designed to, and largely successful in, knocking John Lennon off the pedestal his fans had erected for him. With his new avant-garde wife at his side -- and enough money in the bank to last a lifetime -- Lennon set about ruining his bank value so he could return to being a 'private citizen.' All three albums -- Two Virgins, Life With The Lions & Wedding Album -- are potent reminders of a simpler time when artists could experiment wildly (or just be very silly) and still get released and distributed (erm, somewhat). Rykodisc nicely duplicates the original packaging and the remastered sound quality is, for 1967, pretty darn good.

Of course you can't actually LISTEN to this stuff....

Format: Audio CD
There was a time in the mid-60s when I would have bought an album of the Beatles belching and farting just because it was by the Beatles. If only this solo outing by Lennon with new wife Yoko Ono were that good. This is the album the CIA should have used to get Manuel Noriega to surrender to authorities! (After listening to this release a couple times, you'll be begging your local radio programmer to play "You Light Up My Life"!)
I should have learned my lesson when I first bought Unfinished Music No. 2: Life with the Lions (best track: "Two Minute's Silence"), but John was still my favorite Beatle and I gave him another chance. Big mistake. Is this album experimental? Yes. Is it avant garde? Yes. Is it music? Hey, I'd rather listen to the collected love songs of William Shatner. I'm amazed Rykodisk went to the trouble of rereleasing an album that sold so poorly the first time around in 1969. The only Lennon/Ono collaboration that worked was Double Fantasy. Stick with that one; this is for completists only.
