I bought this recently at a local store for much less than it is valued on this website (it's the 1977 reissue):

The vinyl looks like it was never played.

It's really cool.  Has anyone seen it?  It comes with a wedding certificate, a photo strip, a piece of cake, newspaper clippings, a postcard, artwork, a lyric sheet, and wedding photos.

I have never actually seen it in person, but I have the John Lennon Box of Vision and all of that was reproduced in the book. It is pretty cool, I like all the newspaper clippings in it, that's probably my favorite.

Cool.  I've seen that Box of Vision on the internet but didn't know what was really in it, or whether it was worth obtaining.

If you have most of his albums on vinyl, then I don't think it's as worth it, because my favorite part is the book that reproduces all his album sleeves in vinyl size. 

Have you listened to The Wedding Album yet? Is it any good?

I don't have many on vinyl, but I'm starting a collection.  I'm planning to get my hands on a first pressing of Meet The Beatles later this month.

I've heard all the John stuff.  The Wedding Album is kind of a joke.  It's not music.  And when I say it's not music, I mean that literally.  I kind of like it, though.  I won't give away what's on it because I don't want to ruin it for you, but don't waste your money if you know what I mean.

I had an original box set from when it first came out - in mint condition. I sold it on ebay when I was broke - now I'm not broke anymore and I wish I'd never sold it. I like to think that John would laugh at the irony.

Yeah, it must be hard for you to not be able to play "John And Yoko" whenever you feel like it!

One day, a tape-op got a tape on backwards, he went to play it, and it was all "Neeeradno-undowarrroom" and it was "Wow! Sounds Indian!" -- Paul McCartney
