John and Yoko's Wedding Album, the third long player of experimental recordings was released by Apple in the UK on this day.

The couple's first collaboration, Two Virgins, marked the beginning of their relationship and artistic partnership. The follow-up, Life With The Lions, mostly documented their 1968 stay in London's Queen Charlotte Hospital, where Ono suffered a miscarriage.

Wedding Album commemorated their wedding in Gibraltar on 20 March 1969. Although it was the final installment in their trilogy of avant garde and experimental recordings, the couple continued to document their lives on tape until Lennon's death in 1980.

Wedding Album contained just two tracks: John And Yoko and Amsterdam. The release was credited simply to "John & Yoko"; their surnames did not appear anywhere on the sleeve or record labels.

Amsterdam began with Ono singing John John (Let's Hope For Peace). Four other musical interludes were also included: Lennon performing a brief blues-style composition on an acoustic guitar, featuring the words "Goodbye Amsterdam Goodbye"; Ono singing Grow Your Hair, a song about peace and staying in bed, with Lennon on guitar; an a capella rendition of The Beatles' song Good Night; and Bed Peace, a brief recitation of the words "Bed peace" and "Hair peace".
