Laudate: part 2.

When John got back from India, he was in a bit of a state. The story of the night he visited Derek Taylor at Laudate, concerning all that shattering and putting back together again of the ego malarkey, can be found here. However, I had never seen a ground level photo of the "Japanese" style house itself before. This, though, is it, apparently. The odd and rather ramshackle looking building featured on the cover of Bronco's Country Home album. Many thanks to Demitri Robinson, whose dad happened to be a member of that very combo, for sending this.

  1. wow! Bronco was/is always one of my fave together with the Beatles ofcourse! I had this album since 1971 but never heard of the John Lennon connection. And thank you so much for sharing all these great pics with us!! I wish I could visit mr Lennon's sunroom!
