“You’ve just made your first number one Yoko”

“Walking on Thin Ice” was  released by Yoko Ono in 1981. She and John Lennon finished recording the song on December 8, 1980.
It was upon their return from the recording studio to The Dakota (their home in New York City) that Lennon was murdered by Mark David Chapman. Lennon was clutching a tape of a final mix when he was shot.

This is the Cassette Single released in February of 1981. The copy we have we bought in the Virgin MegaStore, Oxford St., London. Feb 1981. It is a nice example. I have seen these listed as ‘promotional copies’ but I have no way to verify that. There is no copy to indicate that on the cardboard packaging nor on the cassette itself.
