Label Apple
Catalogue No. R 6004
Country of Origin England
Release Date 21st February 1975
U.K. Chart Detail : Did NOT chart.
Detail : Ringo's sixth solo single.

The second single from "Goodnight Vienna", this was Ringo's first chart failure.

Both tracks were from the album, with the A-side being written by Elton John and Bernie Taupin. Elton performs on the track as does Robbie Robertson of "The Band"

The press advert features Ringo as Klaatu, along with Gort, superimposed upon a Half-yearly school report of Ringo's from 1952. Looking at it, one can see that young Richard Starkey was in Class 2C, was in Gibralter "House" and had been absent from school on 34 occassions !!
Oddly though, Ringo gets an "A" in punctuality. He also gets an "A" in Conduct, and an "A" for General Appearance. In a class of 39 children, Ringo is placed 23rd, although in "Arithmetic" he comes an admirable 8th.

The record does not appear in a picture sleeve, and the label reverts to a standard Apple label.
