John Lennon & Yoko Ono/Unfinished Music, No. 1: Two Virgins LP
Remastered from Original Tapes by Sean Lennon!
Two Virgins is the musique concrete first kiss of two of the history's greatest
lovers falling in love in real time.
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 history'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 Lennon's Kenwood home: Distant conversations; comedic role
playing and footsteps; laughter, birdcalls and plunking piano lines; silly songs
and space; tape delay stretching shrieks, bass rumbles and moans to the moon and
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, popculture conversation just as it was a risky
move in 1969. But this is an uncomfortably private, two-person dialogue about
and celebration of experimentation, inspiration and play. And these two souls
bravely let us look through the keyhole.
