There is an amusing story associated with this release ...
As with the previous two experimental albums, this did not chart, and left John with a hat-trick of flops.
|John And Yoko||John and Yoko||Recorded 22nd April 1969 at Abbey Road.
Over twenty-two minutes of John calling out Yoko's name, and Yoko calling John. Shouting, whispering, and a dozen emotional styles, all recounted over the sound of each other's heartbeats.
The same day John was back on the roof of the Apple building, as he held a formal ceremony to change his middle name from "Winston" to "Ono".
|Amsterdam||John and Yoko||Recorded 26th March 1969 in the Amsterdam Hilton.
This piece was again recorded on a cassette recorder, as on the previous release, but this time during the Lennon's honeymoon "bed-in" in Amsterdam. It consists mostly of the pair talking to reporters about their reasons for the bed-in, but also includes four musical breaks. The first is sung by Yoko, and is entitled "John John, Let's Hope For Peace" which would eventually be performed live in Toronto on 13th September 1969. The second is John on acoustic guitar singing "Goodbye Amsterdam Goodbye". Third up is both of them singing "Bed Peace" with John on guitar, and finally John actually remembers "Goodnight" from the White Album !
A C.D. was released 9th June 1997 on Rykodisc catalogue number RCD 10413.
It was digitally remastered under the supervision of Yoko.
It also has THREE BONUS TRACKS ! .... giving it a run time of 53:50.
