Detail : John's sixteenth solo single.
A second single pulled from the "Milk and Honey" album.

Whilst holidaying in Bermuda, John whiled away the hours listening to Bob Marley and reggae music. This song was John's attempt at capturing that feel, albeit less in a reggae style ... more like a west-indian easy listening beat sounding somewhat like 10c.c.

The 12" version of this release included an extra Yoko track, "Never Say Goodbye". Also with the 12" was a free poster showing John and Yoko in a naked embrace.
The cover of the 12" is basically the same component parts as the 7" single pictured above, just re-arranged into different positions.
