John Lennon / Yoko Ono
Wedding Album

Wedding Album by John Lennon & Yoko Ono was released in 1969 and was universally panned upon its release. You do have to remember that The Beatles were still a going concern at the time and were famed for writing some of the greatest pop music known to man. This, as well as being the couple’s third album of experimental music was also the third shock that critics suffered from the Lennon canon and was probably too much for them to take. It’s probably a good time to re-evaluate such experimentation 50 years down the line, we’re more used to this kind of thing now. Limited edition white vinyl LP and CD on Secretly Canadian.

Yoko Ono
Warzone

Warzone by 85 year-old Yoko Ono sees the avant-garde artist stripping back thirteen songs from her career between 1970-2009. The songs carried messages in their lyrics that seem all too relevant now. By stripping the instrumentation back, the lyrics come to the fore and her messages, sometime encouraging, sometimes cautious, are clearer than ever before. LP and Cd on Chimera Music.

Yoko Ono
Feeling The Space

Secretly Canadian do the world a favour here with a set of reissues of vintage Yoko Ono albums, pushing the legendary artist and musician’s achievements back into the limelight next to her reputation. Feeling The Space is an unusually subdued and smooth album of feminist songwriting, but a very successful effort from a different side of Yoko. CD and vinyl editions available.

Yoko Ono
Approximately Infinite Universe

Secretly Canadian do the world a favour here with a set of reissues of vintage Yoko Ono albums, pushing the legendary artist and musicians achievements back into the limelight with her reputation. Approximately Infinite Universe is a big and bold rock album with mystic touches: Anika fans in particular should check out Ono’s original version of ‘Yang Yang’. CD and vinyl editions available.

Yoko Ono
Fly

Secretly Canadian do the world a favour here with a set of reissues of vintage Yoko Ono albums, pushing the legendary artist and musician’s achievements back into the limelight next to her reputation. Fly is an epic opus of a double album, ably splitting the difference between Yoko’s avant-Fluxus side and her 70’s rock grooving side, with lengthy tracks like ‘Mind Train’ and ‘Fly’ going motorik-chug and full abstract-screaming respectively. Totally vita stuff. CD and vinyl editions available.

Yoko Ono
Plastic Ono Band

Fronted with bizarre, eery screeching, Yoko Ono's (widow of John Lennon) avant-garde offering Plastic Ono is finally reissued on vinyl. Originally released way back in 1971, the album has a classic yet timeless sound that has influenced a host of musicians throughout the decades. 

John Lennon / Yoko Ono
Unfinished Music No. 2: Life With The Lions

As the second part of John and Yoko’s Unfinished Music series, Life With The Lions is one of the least popular albums John Lennon was ever involved with. Partner Yoko Ono took a Fluxus-style approach, and the album consists of howling, feedback, readings of press clippings etc. Better than the any Beatles record (fight it out in the customer review box if you like!) and reissued by Secretly Canadian.

John Lennon / Yoko Ono
Unfinished Music No. 1: Two Virgins

Two Virgins is generally known as one of the least popular albums John Lennon was ever involved with: yay! Yoko Ono’s avant-art practices are clearly the heaviest influence here on this abstract suite of musique concrete, bird-song, conversation and other less-than-traditionally-musical sounds. Excellent to see it reissued by Secretly Canadian!

Yoko Ono & Sean Lennon with John Malkovich
Illuminated

Yes indeed, this release features the professionally dramatic voice of John Malkovich in addition to the younger Lennon and the perennial Yoko Ono. Illuminated also has involvement from Dweezil Zappa, and the whole thing makes for a pretty surreal ride. 12” picture disc in a firmly limited edition of 1000 copies, from Cryogenia.

Yoko Ono
Yes, I'm A Witch Too

Yoko Ono is back, with a follow up record to her 2007 collaborative set. Yes, I’m A Witch Too features Ono herself working with all sorts, from Sparks and Death Cab For Cutie to tUnE-yArDs and Miike Snow, to a great many more notables. Some remix, some play alongside her. My my. CD or double LP on the Manimal Vinyl label.

Yoko Ono & The Flaming Lips
Happy Xmas (War Is Over)

The Flaming Lips continue their merry series of collaborations by reprising their relationship with Yoko Ono, this time with a version of optimistic festive classic Happy Xmas (War Is Over). The B-side is stocked with their previous 2013 collaboration Atlas Eets Christmas, which was previously desperately rare. 7” on Chimera Music.

Yoko Ono & John Zorn
Blink

Yoko Ono, of performance art fame, meets up, as everyone does eventually, with John Zorn, of frantically-playing-a-saxophone-and-releasing-endless-records fame. This limited 10” record features music on only one side, the other containing a nice etching from Ono. Three minutes and twenty seconds of music, so listen up!

Yoko Ono Plastic Ono Band
Take Me To Land Of Hell

Ono, not you again. Take Me To The Land Of Hell is by Yoko Ono, who you’ll all know best for her work with Barney Gumble. This LP features a tonne of guests (seriously, the credits run to many lines), of which the salient points are tUnE-yArDs (f*ck yes!), ?uestlove (f*ck yes!), Ad Rock & Mike D (f*ck yes!) and Lenny Kravitz (f*ck no!). Produced by her son Sean Lennon, Take Me To The Land Of Hell is another collection of cerebral art-Kraut.

Yoko Ono Plastic Ono Band
Between My Head and the Sky

Between My Head And The Sky is where you’ll find madame Yoko Ono these days. For the first time in well over 3 decades she is releasing an LP alongside her Plastic Ono Band. Along with a supporting cast that now includes Yuka Honda and Ono’s son Sean Lennon, the grand duchess of the avant-garde crafts tracks that take in psych-rock, musique concrete, cosmic disco and much more. In other words - Between My Head And The Sky is an album by Yoko Ono.
