Notes: John & Yoko, after their encounter with Claudio went and got some sleep having been up all night recording.
They emerged again around 6pm to find "Sounds" photographer "Spud" Murphy waiting for them (brief footage in “Above Us Only Sky”).
He was allowed to take photos whilst they gathered in the kitchen. Not long after the musicians for that night`s session started to arrive.
Nicky Hopkins, Klaus Voormaan, Alan White, Phil Spector (in a 3 piece suit!) and...George Harrison.
By this stage John was busily writing out the slogan "Make Love Not War" in different languages and the cameras caught part of this which was seen in the documentary "Gimme Some Truth" in 2000.
