Lennon Bermuda being featured at Anfield
The Bermuda-produced CD Lennon Bermuda has struck the right note in the home city of John Lennon, and is being given airtime inside Liverpool Football Clubs Anfield stadium.
A copy of the 32-track CD, featuring Bermudian and international artists with Bermuda-links singing versions of songs written by Mr Lennon as a solo artist or in collaboration with fellow Beatles band member Paul McCartney, has found its way to Anfield stadium PA announcer George Sephton.
Mr Sephton, who plays music during the half-time interval at home games for the English Premier League team, described the CD as a stunner, and intends to play tracks from it during the next few games at Anfield.
Lennon Bermuda was released by Freisenbruch Brannon Media last year as part of the Islands celebration of Mr Lennons connection with the Island.
The Liverpool-born musician enjoyed an extended vacation in Bermuda in the summer of 1980, working on what became his final songs.
Reacting to the news that the CD is being played at Anfield, Tony Brannon, of Freisenbruch Brannon Media, said: I think this is brilliant, and hats off to our PR team in the UK. Lennon Bermuda at Anfield: Does it get any better.
A Lennon Bermuda peace day concert was held in the Botanical Gardens last September, featuring many of the artists on the CD, including Maxi Priest, Heather Nova, Biggie Irie and Judie Tzuke.
A second John Lennon Peace Day concert is scheduled for September 21 this year, once again in the Botanical Gardens.
