Recording, mixing: Cold Turkey, Don’t Worry Kyoko (Mummy’s Only Looking For Her Hand In The Snow) by Plastic Ono Band

Studio Two, EMI Studios, Abbey Road
Producers: John Lennon, Yoko Ono
Engineer: Geoff Emerick

Although he had created stereo mixes of Cold Turkey on 29 September, John Lennon added finishing touches and created further mixes on this day.

The session lasted a full 12 hours, from 10am to 10pm, and also saw the completion of the single’s b-side Don’t Worry Kyoko (Mummy’s Only Looking For Her Hand In The Snow), which had been recorded two days previously.

Lennon added a series of overdubs to the 28 September recording of Cold Turkey made at Trident Studios. He taped two new lead vocals and added more lead guitar, including the backwards flourish at the song’s close.
