The next day on June 24 1961, the Beatles along with Tony Sheridan moved to another studio to complete the three day recording sessions started on June 22. Three songs were recorded on this day: "Ain't She Sweet" had a John Lennon vocal, "Take Out Some Insurance On Me Baby" and "Nobody's Chile" both covers by Jimmy Reed and Hank Snow respectively featuring Tony Sheridan on vocals.
The location of the recordings were at Studio Rahlstedt in Hamburg Germany.
