John Lennon - Unfinished Music #2 - Life With The Lions
Released: May 9th, 1969
This album is a major improvement compared to Two Virgins. There is even the use of real music instruments and there's singing!
01 Cambridge 1969 Yoko is exploring the possibilities of her voice, while John is trying to figure out how distortion works on his guitar. Yoko is trying to imitate a dying wulf, a kicked dog and a howling cat. There's moments when John and Yoko are almost in tune accidentally! Pure magic. The song is 26 minutes which is a bit short to expect more accidents like that.
02 No Bed For Beatle John Yoko is surprising her fans with an à capella song in a Gregorian style. The story is about John giving his hospitalbed to an emergency case when he was there to be with Yoko who had problems with her pregnancy. Well, it's a song. A very bad one, but it's a song.
03 Baby's Heartbeat Five minutes of the sound of John and Yoko's unborn child's heartbeat. The fact that they lost their child due to a miscarriage doesn't make it an enjoyable thing. I'm glad Yoko keeps her mouth shut.
04 Two Minutes Silence Best song on the album and it's not even an original idea.
05 Radio Play John switching the radio on and off. The thing is a bit long, over twelve minutes. That's twelve minutes too long.
All in all, a waste of production time and talent. And a waste of vinyl.
Friend: My favorite Beatles song is Band On The Run. Me: It's not a Beatles song. Friend: Wot! That guy, that guy, Paul McCartney sings it right? Me: Yes. Friend: Alright! That one is my favorite Beatle song.
Fiendish Thingy: Thanks Bobber. I'm good thanks. Quiet on here for the last few months. I see Al has gone all 'Facebook' and is attracting new members. No bad thing. Are you going to the annual Beatleweek in Liverpool this year? Not long now 10 weeks or so. See you there?

Bobber: Not sure. It's an expensive trip for me plus I'm starting a new job around that time.

Amadeus: Hey all. Not been frequenting here very much lately. Between burying people, helping sick people and feeling crap myself, Me and Mrs. A. have been weighed under. Hoping to get a bit more out of that rut so I can focus back on the fun things I used to focus
