          JOHN LENNON and YOKO ONO, 1969 UNFINISHED MUSIC NO. 2: LIFE WITH THE LIONS, ZAPPLE LABEL LP. 

 

Catalogue No. ZAPPLE 01.

John's second solo album release, and second experimental release.

Cedited to John Lennon and Yoko Ono

The album was produced by John and Yoko, but the best summary is probably the sleeve notes on the cover by George Martin which simply says :

"No Comment".

The rear of the cover also says, "Made In Merrie England Nov. '68".

The photograph on the front cover was taken by Susan Wood in Room No. 1, Second West Ward, Queen Charlotte Hospital, Hammersmith. The rear cover picture was taken by a Daily Mirror photographer outside Marylebone Magistrates Court, 181, Marylebone Road, London on 19th October 1968 after John had appeared with Yoko for possession of hashish (he had been arrested the previous day at Ringo's flat). Even though John has always claimed the weed was planted(sic), he pleaded guilty so that the pregnant Yoko could have her charges dropped. He was fined £150 plus costs. It was this offence that would haunt John later in the seventies as he struggled with the American authorities to get his "Green Card". This the first release on what the Beatles intended to be an Apple budget label. The idea for Zapple was that the records would be priced cheaply enough to discard after playing, but when they reached the shops, they were priced normally. (THE ABOVE COURTESY OF GRAHAM GALKIN)
