Two Virgins

Highly Appreciated

Unfinished Music No. 1: Two Virgins  is the first of three experimental albums released by John Lennon and Yoko Ono in November 1968.  Lennon and Ono’s debut album is known not only for its avant garde content, but also for the album cover that features Lennon and Ono naked, which made the album become controversial — to both the public and the record company EMI, which refused to distribute it.  To calm down the controversy, the album was sold in a brown paper bag.  The album, while failing to the chart in the UK, reached number 124 in the US.  The album was followed by Unfinished Music No.2: Life with the Lions.  (More from Wikipedia)
Feedback” starts off with feedback-drenched guitar echo that is among the best I have heard – certainly better than “Free Form Guitar” on Chicago’s first album Chicago Transit Authority, or the side-long “Cambridge 1969” by John Lennon and Yoko Ono that was included on their follow-up toTwo Virgins, Unfinished Music No. 2: Life with the Lions – then again, Index went on to do a real song rather than just waving their guitar in front of the amp.
