John Lennon's Jukebox

A looong while back Joseph and I watched this amazing show about an old jukebox which belonged to John Lennon. I think there is something magical about a little treasure that tells a story like Lennon's jukebox. Watching this show made me feel as if the jukebox was breathing and living still, giving new life to old things, not to be forgotten.

You can watch all the videos HERE, so enjoy. It's worth it. Da, I hope you've seen this!

In 1989, a Bristol music promoter purchased at auction an old Discomatic jukebox owned by John Lennon in the 1960s. Its track list, written in Lennon's own hasty handwriting, catalogued 41 remarkable discs of American soul, R&B, and rock 'n' roll -- a collection that shaped his musical education and became the musical style source from which the Beatles sound derived. Below is a complete list of all the 45s included in the jukebox.
