John Lennon & Yoko Ono UK 1969 Wedding Album (incomplete)

£175.00 £150.00

As with most of Apple’s boxed releases US components were often substituted for UK contents when stocks ran out- not that anyone cared until years later, when  collectors dug out their copies of All Thing  Must Pass  only  to  find  that it  was  housed in a  US box, or worse still  US inner sleeves ! 🙂

Or ….with  The Wedding Album, which is seriously hard to  find, in decent (or even acceptable) condition, especially with a full UK  box and contents. And not for good reason. Even George  Harrison, complained at the time, that John & Yoko were  affording world-wide importance on their ever action. It didn’t sell and even those loyal, diehard, completist fans must have been disappointed?

However, I love when  Lennon & Ono were working on their self proclaimed “John & Yoko” period.  While both their previous works , Two Virgins and Life With the Lions, are one time listening, self  indulgent ephemera, the Wedding Album is worth a couple of listens….it’s very  funny. The A-side, where they say nothing but “John”… “Yoko” for the whole  side gets bizarrely hilarious. Meanwhile the B-side focuses   on the nitty-gritty  of turning world-wide fame upside down for their Peace Campaign.

Condition : Good/ Fair-  NOT included -the photo booth strip and the postcard. Everything  else is present. The plastic bag  and photo of the cake are US components with the SMAX#. However the  box is a rare example the UK version- albeit with corners missing- see photos.

I’ll save a long winded appraisal  and let the photos provide the ‘description’. Priced to sell.

•  Box Lid : Rare UK, no ‘SMAX’ -sadly missing sections -see photos

• Box Tray : All corners taped -see photos

• Wedding certificate (glued onto inside box lid)
• Press booklet : Minor wear, no  pin holes, no rips
• Fold out poster of the wedding photos : Folds out 6 x 12″ LP size : no tears
• Poster of ”Bed Peace” Folds out 3 x 12″ LP  size : creased
• Bagism bag (white plastic) + Picture of wedding cake -USA printed

• LP : VG+ No significant marks but has actually been played !
• Photo booth strip & postcard : Missing
