For completists and collectors only I'd say...
I mean, who is actually going to listen to such bollocks?

I really like Cambridge 69 from Life With The Lions. Not that I want to hear it every day. Uneasy listening! Two Virgins is mostly nonsense, The Wedding Album is barely worth a second listen. Each of these albums was reissued on CD by RYKO some years back (I am a proud owner...). Life With The Lions and The Wedding Album were reissued on vinyl(in minuscule quantities!) by Toshiba EMI in Japan in 1981.

Unless the Wedding album is released in the same format as the original I.e in the box with the inserts then they are wasting their time. It's a better read than listen

What are they waiting for a "Beatles Singles Collection" (45rpm), "George Harrison Vinyl Box", a decent "Decca Audition", "Love Show DVD/Bluray", some "Get Back Sessions"?
They are only releasing crap...

I am really looking forward to these reissues. My old vinyl copies are worn out from repeated playing.

Really you played Two virgins more than once?

If I'm not mistaken, wasn't the Rykodisc of Two Virgins actually edited down to a significantly shorter running time?
