The second of three experimental albums of live and avant-garde music released by John Lennon and Yoko Ono in the late 1960s. Side A consists of a improvised noise performance at Lady Mitchell Hall in Cambridge on March 2, 1969, the couple’s second public performance as a duo. The second side of the album was recorded on tape in Ono’s suite at Queen Charlotte’s Hospital in London, while she was recovering from a miscarriage, including a track of silence referencing John Cage’s 4’33”. The album’s cover photo was also taken during this hospital stay by Susan Wood.
