Yoko Ono has teamed with the Secretly Canadian label to reissue the artist’s entire musical output from 1968 to 1985. The reissue project kicks off November 11th with a trio of Ono LPs: 1968’s Unfinished Music No. 1: Two Virgins, 1969’s Unfinished Music No. 2: Life With Lions and 1970’s Plastic Ono Band.
Each album will reconstruct the original vinyl packaging alongside remastered audio. The reissues marks the first time these Ono albums will be available as digital downloads.
All three of the November 11th reissues also include bonus tracks not featured on the original release: Unfinished Music No. 1: Two Virgins contains non-LP track “Remember Love,” while Unfinished Music No. 2: Life With Lions boasts “Song for John” and “Mulberry.” Plastic Ono Band contains four tracks not included on the album: An extended version of “Why” plus “Open Your Box,” “Something More Abstract” and “The South Wind.”
In total, 11 Ono albums will be reissued over the next few years, including 1971’s Fly, 1981’s Season of Glass – recorded after the death of John Lennon in December 1980 – and 1969’s Unfinished Music No. 3: Wedding Album. Preorder the first three reissues at Secretly Canadian.
