Tittenhurst Park

This Tittenhurst Park blog is dedicated to John Lennon's home in Sunningdale, near Ascot, Berkshire between 1969 and 1971. The aim is to gather as much material relating to the estate as possible - obviously with the emphasis on the Lennon-era, but also concerning Tittenhurst Park as it was before and after John Lennon's ownership. In addition, there will be posts about and associated with the Beatles, plus any other rubbish I feel like. The blog is purely meant for the entertainment of anyone (assuming there is actually anyone) who, like me, has an unhealthy interest in one particular Georgian mansion. Those with anything interesting to contribute in the way of links, photos, scans, stories etc. please do contact me: tittenhurstlennon@gmail.com
(Legal: this blog is strictly non-commercial. All material is the property of the photographer/artist/copyright holder concerned. Any such who wishes a picture etc to be removed should contact me and I will do so. Alternatively, if someone is happy to see their photo on here, but would like a credit/link then let me know and I'll be happy to provide one).


Aspen - No.7

John Lennon and Yoko Ono: 21st March 1970

Aspen No. 7 - Item 9


1. Let's Go On Flying
On a windy day Let's go on flying There may be no trees to rest on There may be no clouds to ride But we'll have our wings And the wind will be with us That's enough for me That's enough for me
On a windy day We went on flying There was no sea to rest on There were no hills to glide We saw an empty bottle rolling down the street And on a cardboard stand at The corner of the street Wrinkled souls piled up like grapefruit

2. Snow Is Falling All The Time
Snow is failing everywhere Snow is falling all the time Between a milk bottle and a beer can Between Empire State Building and Trafalgar Square
Snow is falling everywhere Snow is falling all the time
When you talk to someone Snow is falling between you and him When you talk with someone Go on talking until he's covered with snow
Snow is falling everywhere Snow is falling all the time all the time

3. Mum's Only Looking For Her Hand In The Snow
Kyoko, don't worry Don't worry, Kyoko Mum's only looking for Her hand in the snow

Sung to the tune of.

No bed for Beatle John Beatle John Lennon lost his hospital bed yesterday -- to a patient!
It happened at Queen Charlotte's Hospital, London, where John was keeping vigil in the room where his girl friend, Yoko Ono, is being kept under observation.
When he realised his bed was needed for an urgent case, John sent out for a sleeping-bag.
And last night he was once more happily kipped down alongside Yoko -- in the sleeping bag.
Yoko, who expects a baby next February, will remain in the hospital for another few days. A Beatles spokesman said: "There is a good chance for the baby's survival.''
The Beatles win battle of the nude LP
The Beatles have won their fight to put out an LP record with a sleeve showing John Lennon and Yoko Ono in the nude.
EMI, the world's biggest recording company, whose artists include the Beatles, refused to handle the LP called Two Virgins because of the sleeve. So did the group's American outlet, Capitol Records.
But the record with its controversial sleeve will be released in both countries next month through Polydor and Track Records in Britain and through a company called Tetragrammaton Records in America.

Bentley -- but no Beatles
Beatle John Lennon's psychedelic Bentley purred into Old Windsor on Thursday last week. Resplendent with gold, green, red and blue patterns, and bearing the famous "Apple" registration mark -- 222 APL -- the car was parked outside Crevald's Services Ltd., the marine engineering firm, in Straight Road.
But the car was not being driven by Lennon. It was sold six weeks ago by Dandic Fashions, Wigmore Street, to 34-year-old Mr. Leo Nutley,a marine engineer from Hampton Surveying the exotic 1956 vehicle, he said: "It's foul, disgusting, horrible."
He went further: "I don't like it." Mr. Nutley said he intended respraying the car, but he had been told that it was worth more left as it is.
And because of its value, Mr. Nutley is hoping to sell it in America. Till then he will just use it as a business car, and go around telling people: "It's foul, disgusting, horrible."
Miss Ono, 34, is named in a forthcoming defended divorce suit being brought by Mr. Lennon's wife, Cynthia.
