Sunny Heights: 28 February, 1967.





Completing a triumvirate of Sunny Heights related shots, here is John plus lion looking archetypally other-worldly in February 1967, shortly before heading to studio 2 at EMI to begin work on Lucy in the Sky with Diamonds (assuming the above date is correct, that is). The military band tunic was later taken to New York, before being donated to the Salvation Army by John and Yoko in 1977. The man who collected it also managed to acquire it, with his manager's approval ("Jammy bas" to use the vernacular), and it has subsequently appeared at auction. Many thanks to Glenn Marteney for the Sunny pics. I'm afraid I've lost track of who sent one or two of the auction shots - but thanks whoever you are.
