Remastered from Original Tapes by Sean Lennon!
Life With The Lions is the 1969 followup to Two Virgins. The album is the sound
of Ono and Lennon validating their love as something impenetrable and timeless.
It's when we, the listener, begin to fully understand that the scope of their
recording efforts was much more than a recording collaboration, and something
closer to a performative documentary, a declaration of "Our life and our love is
our art - every nitty, gritty part of it.”
"John Lennon and Yoko Ono's second collaborative album consists of five tracks: all of side one is taken up by 'Cambridge 1969,' a live recording at Lady Mitchell Hall in Cambridge of Lennon playing an electric guitar backup to Ono's singing and screaming. Side two includes an a cappella rendering by Ono of 'No Bed for Beatle John,' which discusses the refusal of a hospital to give Lennon a bed so he could stay during his wife's troubled pregnancy; 'Baby's Heartbeat,' which is what it says it is; 'Two Minutes Silence' in commemoration of Ono's miscarriage, which is also what it says it is; and 'Radio Play,' 12 minutes of a radio dial being turned back and forth to pick up random stations. If, as they suggested, their lives were their art, then this is, too. Maybe." - William Ruhlmann, allmusic.com
