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).


Instant Karma - 11th February 1970

Top of the Pops

Recorded: 11th February 1970. Transmitted by: BBC1 Colour 12/Feb/1970 [Version One] & 19th February 1970 [Version Two]

(7:15pm-8pm) The first solo Beatle to perform on the long running British TV institution Top Of The Pops was John with a Plastic Ono Band comprising of Klaus Voorman (bass), Alan White (drums), the Irish journalist B.P. Fallon (Tambourine in version one, doubling up on bass on version two) and a blind-folded Yoko Ono (holding card instructions on version one, knitting on version two). For both versions (recorded for 2 separate shows) John sang a new vocal on top of the original recording. Beatles Roadie Mal Evans also joined the line-up for version two playing the tambourine. Version one was actually take 4 whilst version two was take 3.
