JOHN LENNON Yoko Ono INDIES ONLY Two Virgins LP Vinyl NEW
1. Side One
2. Side Two
3. Remember Love
Turns out the very sound of falling in love is just as abstract, subjective and loopy as the concept itself. Yoko Ono and John Lennon are two of historyâ€™s greatest lovers and Two Virgins is the document of the pair falling in love in real time. The album is a curious and amazing suite recorded over one weekend in Spring 1968 at Lennonâ€™s Kenwood home: Distant conversations; comedic role playing and footsteps; laughter, bird calls and plunking piano lines; silly songs and space; tape delay stretching shrieks, bass rumbles and moans to the moon and back again.
The now-iconic cover (featuring Ono and Lennon standing nude together) notwithstanding, nothing about Two Virgins is safe. It would be a risky move today for artists in the larger, pop culture conversation just as it was a risky move in 1969. However, this is an uncomfortably private, two-person dialogue about - and celebration of - experimentation, inspiration and play. These two souls bravely let us look through the keyhole.
Available exclusively through independent stores such as ourselves, this limited edition LP is pressed on white vinyl, and supplements the album with a bonus track.
