John Lennon and his Plastic Ono Supergroup: Peace For Christmas

Musicians: Eric Clapton, Klaus Voormann, Alan White, Bobby Keys, Billy Preston, Keith Moon, Jim Gordon, Delaney Bramlett, Bonnie Bramlett, George Harrison, Yoko Ono and John Lennon

John and Yoko's Plastic Ono Supergroup played at the Peace For Christmas concert at the Lyceum Ballroom, Covent Garden, London, in aid of UNICEF. The musicians only had time for one brief rehearsal, in the afternoon before the show. George Harrison was among the musicians in the hastily assembled group: the first time he and John had appeared together in concert since August 1966. They performed extended versions of "Cold Turkey" and "Don't Worry Kyoko (Mummy's Only Looking For Her Hand In The Snow)". The entire show was recorded and partly released on John Lennon & Yoko Ono: Some Time in New York City. A short b/w film clip with excerpts from both songs circulates among collectors.
