CURRENT  MUSICAL  ACTIVITIES. (Etc).

 

 
 
'STRAWBERRY FIELDS' - (ALMERIA, SPAIN).  Recorded 1967. 
March 21st 2014. 
 
Just by accident! - we booked in for a night at the (Hotel Nuevo Torreluz) in the City of Almeria Spain and 'Low and Behold' a Bronze Statue of John Lennon was situated just outside the front door. 

Almeria was the birthplace of the song - 'Strawberry Fields' - which previously was an orphanage  in Liverpool, organised by the 'Salvation Army' situated just around the corner from Lennon's childhood home in the suburb of Woolton. I have great respect for John Lennon's contribution to the World. (R.I.P).        P.s. - The song 'IMAGINE' says it 'all'.
