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).


John Lennon's Annotated 'Imagine' Acetate

John Lennon's Personal Signed and Annotated Imagine Acetate

John Lennon's famous personal advance acetate of his then-upcoming hit LP, "Imagine" - a priceless historic relic which has come to symoblize a significant piece of John Lennon / Beatles History.Inscribed in Lennon's hand on the Apple sleeve, "From two friends of Paul Krasner with love." Additionally in Lennon's hand is his track by track rundown of the LP with notations and humorous references which give us further insight into the intriguing mind and personality of John Lennon. Filling the entire sleeve (one side) with the breakdown of musicians and musical assignments for each song. Additionally John has changed the title of track 3, side 2 to read, "George on lead guitar (Enough Said!!)."

This is an interesting commentary on the relationship between John & Paul. He has written his name, "John", 7 times on the sleeve.The record's labels with typed print are also most likely prepared by John himself, and boast several visible "typos": "Crippled Inside" was originally typed to read, "Crippled Guy" and the corrected error is still visible, "I Don't W-n-a-t To Be A Soldier", etc.
