John Lennon: The Bermuda Interactive App
In June of 1980, John Lennon took a summer vacation. He sailed from Newport, R.I., aboard a 43-foot sloop with a crew of four to Bermuda, where he rented a house and flew his son Sean, then 4, down to join him. Ordinarily, that wouldn't be such a loaded statement, but given what happened December 8, 1980, Lennon's trip to Bermuda has gained a kind of misty-eyed significance.
You can see what we mean with John Lennon: The Bermuda Tapes, a sprawling, interactive album app now available through iTunes.
The app consists of two parts: An illustrated narrative of Lennon's time in Bermuda, as well as interviews with Lennon, Yoko Ono, the ships's crew (and a few other notables), plus demos of the songs he made while on holiday. Collectively, the app is an indispensable, afternoon-swallowing treat for Lennon and Beatles fans. source
