The Beatles Contribution:  Ringo guests on drums and supplies backing vocals.
Label R.C.A.
Catalogue No. RS 1008
Release date 28th March 1975
U.K. Album Chart Detail : Did NOT Chart
Detail : "Duit On Mon Dei", an apparently Latin motto, but one we`ve seen before ... see Ringo an album that Nilsson worked on !

This album was originally going to be entitled, "God's Greatest Hits" ... but the powers that be managed to persuade Nilsson to change it ... except, if you open up the split gatefold you are confronted with a full-sized exact copy of the front cover with the words "Duit On Mon Dei" replaced with, "Formerly God's Greatest Hits" and the words "Bless It" in the bottom right hand corner.

Ringo only plays drums on "Kojak Columbo", and backing vocals on "Good For God".
Amongst other guest musicians, Klaus Voorman plays bass.

There is also a message at the bottom of the gatefold picture spread that says,
If you care about "you know who's" immigration status - write your "you know what"
... obviously a message about harry's friend John !
