Once again written by Richard Starkey, this was another big hit for Ringo reaching number 2. The single keeping it off the
top was "Amazing Grace" by The Royal Scots Dragoon Guards. Again produced by George Harrison, Ringo is backed by George,
Klaus Voorman, and Gary Wright.
The B-side, also written by Ringo, was from his 1971 film of the same name.
The single was released in a picture sleeve, with the rear being plain black with just the word "Blindman" in the centre.
On 12th March 1984 as part of their "Golden 45's" series, E.M.I. released a double A-side of "It don't Come Easy"/ "Back Off Boogaloo" (Catalogue number G45 13). This series was a mixture of E.M.I. artists and the only other Beatle contribution was a John Lennon double A-side of "Give Peace A Chance"/"Cold Turkey" (G45 2).
