Background: Released in May 1969, Unfinished Music No. 2: Life With the Lions was the second solo album by John Lennon, accompanied by his then-girlfriend, Yoko Ono.
The album contained no music per se, and was rather avant garde in its presentation. The album reached #174 on the U.S. album charts, did not chart in the UK, and was soon deleted.
The album was quite rare at one time, but a small quantity of sealed copies was found in a warehouse in the early 1980s.
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.
