John Lennon & Yoko Ono – Wedding Album
Wedding Album, is the third and final in a succession of three experimental albums by John Lennon and Yoko Ono.
“John & Yoko”, the first side, a recording made on 22 and 27 April 1969, is of Lennon and Ono calling out each other’s names, through a range of volume, tempos, and emotions, over the sound of their heartbeats. The two recorded on individual speakers. Lennon described the heartbeats as being “like African drums”.
“Amsterdam”, the second side, had been recorded first, in a hotel room at the Hilton Hotel in Amsterdam, Holland, during 25–31 March 1969. The piece consists of interviews explaining their campaign for peace, conversations and captured sounds during the couple’s “Bed-In” honeymoon. An early form of what would become “John John Let’s Hope for Peace” forms the beginning of “Amsterdam”.
