In contrast to the European release, it was promoted with the song Early One Morning in America, taken from the album Let Me Touch Your Mind. The track With A Little Help From My Friends was recorded live, but produced like a studio version. Ike & Tina promoted it at the American TV-Show Midnight Special in 1973. Both are cover songs, the title track was originally released from Little Richard in 1957 and the b-side from The Beatles in 1967.
