I came across this photo of John and Yoko showing off their latest LPs and, apparently, that there are still plenty of copies of The Wedding Album available. I’ve got to get me one of those wedding albums: a pricey piece of junk that I’ll probably never listen to but that looks plenty cool—sign me up! And look at that Apple sticker on the record that John’s got! This pic reminded me of the somewhat sorry state of my copy of Lennon’s Plastic Ono Band.
I have what I believe is an Australian edition which unfortunately has the censored versions of “I Found Out” and “Working Class Hero”. The omission of the curse words is totally jarring and somewhat upsetting but I can live with it as long as the word “cookin'” is present on “Hold On”. I guess I can take minor solace in the (possibly) unique looking white apple silhouette on record’s label (see above). Most of the copies I’ve seen on ebay have a more conventional white apple (see below).
The inner sleeve of my copy is printed on ridiculously glossy paper—it can practically stand up on its own—as opposed to the cheaper paper pictured below.
Finally, we have a tape of The Wedding Album getting some mention on an Australian chart show. I’m sure that the LP’s appearance on this show is the closest that it managed to get to the charts in Australia or elsewhere.
