John Lennon - Vinyl Trio #10
Here is a trio of LPs from John Lennon for your listening pleasure.
Unfinished Music No. 1: Two Virgins is the first of three experimental albums released by John Lennon and Yoko Ono on Apple Records. It was the result of an all-night session of musical experimentation with Yoko in John's home studio at Kenwood, while his wife, Cynthia Lennon, was on holiday in Greece. Lennon and Ono's 1968 debut recording is known not only for its avant-garde content but also for its cover which features the couple naked: This made the album controversial to both the public and the parent record company EMI, which refused to distribute it. In an attempt to avoid controversy, the LP record was sold in a brown paper bag, and distributed by Track and Tetragrammaton in the United Kingdom and the United States respectively.
This LP is a 1969 Apple release. The cover sleeve has post-it notes tastefully applied. The cover shows some wear but is in good condition. The vinyl is in very good condition.
Rock 'n' Roll is the sixth studio album by John Lennon. Released in 1975, it is an album of late 1950s and early 1960s songs as covered by Lennon. Recording the album was problematic and spanned an entire year: Phil Spector produced sessions in October 1973 at A&M Studios, and Lennon produced sessions in October 1974 at the Record Plant (East). The album was released in February 1975, reaching number 6 in both the United Kingdom and the United States.
This FACTORY SEALED LP is a 1975 EMI issue and is in very good condition although it has a hole punched in the upper right corner, indicating it was excess stock from a music store returned to the distributor.
Double Fantasy is the fifth album by John Lennon and Yoko Ono, released in November 1980 on Geffen Records. Produced by Lennon, Ono, and Jack Douglas, it was the seventh and final studio album released by Lennon during his lifetime. The album marked Lennon's return to recording music full-time, following his five-year hiatus to raise his son Sean. Recording sessions took place at The Hit Factory in New York City between August and October 1980. Following Lennon's murder three weeks after the album's release, it became a worldwide commercial success and went on to win the 1981 Grammy Award for Album of the Year
This LP is a 1980 Giffin release. The outer sleeve has some edge/corner wear but is in good condition. The inner sleeve with printed lyrics is in good condition. The vinyl is in very good condition.
