While there, Lennon was inspired to embark on two recording projects: to make an album of the old rock 'n' roll songs that inspired him to become a musician. In October 1973, Lennon collaborated with Phil Spector to record the oldies album, Rock ‘n' Roll, which Lennon would ultimately complete with the same musicians he used on Walls and Bridges.

Pang also arranged for Julian Lennon to visit his father for the first time in almost three years and Julian began to see his father more regularly. Lennon bought Julian a Gibson Les Paul guitar and a drum machine for Christmas in 1973 and encouraged Julian's interest in music by showing him some chords.

In March 1974, Lennon began producing Harry Nilsson's Pussy Cats album, thus named to counter the "bad boy" image the pair had earned in the media at Los Angeles famed music club, The Troubadour. At that time, Lennon thought it would be a good idea for the musicians to live under one roof. to ensure they would get to the studio on time, so Nilsson rented a beach house in Santa Monica, for himself, May, Lennon, Klaus Voormann, Ringo Starr, and Keith Moon to live in.

During this period, Pang encouraged Lennon to reach out to family and friends. He and Paul McCartney mended fences and played together for the first and only time after the breakup of the Beatles, which became the bootleg album A Toot and a Snore in '74.

In May 1974, Lennon and Pang returned to live in Manhattan. While visiting Mick Jagger at Andy Warhol's compound in Montauk, New York, Lennon, and Pang saw a Scottish-style cottage for sale close to the Montauk Point Lighthouse. Lennon asked a real estate broker to put in an offer for it in January 1975. In the same month, Lennon and Pang were also planning on visiting Paul and Linda McCartney in New Orleans, where Wings were recording the Venus and Mars album, but Lennon reconciled with Yoko in February, just before the planned visit, thus ending the relationship with Pang.
