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 - One to One Concert: Madison Square Garden in New York on 30th August 1972

The One To One Concert

The One to One concerts took place at Madison Square Garden in New York on 30th August 1972. The event was in aid of a local charity, the Willowbrook Handicapped Children's Home. John and Yoko (backed by Elephant's Memory) were the main attraction at both shows (afternoon and evening), they performed New York City, It's So Hard, Move On Fast, Woman Is The Nigger Of The World, Sisters, O Sisters, Well Well Well, Born In A Prison, Instant Karma!, Mother, We're All Water, Come Together, Imagine, Open Your Box, Cold Turkey, Don't Worry Kyoko and Hound Dog. The evening performance dropped Don't Worry Kyoko but added Give Peace A Chance as an encore in which they were joined on stage by the other artists on the bill (Sha Na Na, Stevie Wonder and Roberta Flack).
The film, The One To One Concert, utilized performances from the evening concert (six of John's numbers, one of Yoko's and the encore - tracks from the supporting artists were also included), it was produced by Joko Films and directed by Steve Gebhardt with Bob Fries and Phil Spector overseeing the soundtrack. ABC in the US broadcast the film on 14th December 1972 as part of their In Concert series with FM Radio simulcasts being aired in many cities as well.
