Reception and charts
While "Mary Had a Little Lamb" was dismissed by the critics, it climbed to the Top 10 in the United Kingdom. In the United States, however, radio stations preferred to play "Little Woman Love" more frequently. As a result, the picture sleeve for "Mary Had a Little Lamb" was revised by Apple Records to have a separate listing for the flip side, as shown. However, the single only reached number 28 in the US.
"Little Woman Love" was never released on an album until 1993, when it was included as a bonus track to Wild Life in The Paul McCartney Collection. It was included on the Special and Deluxe editions of the 2012 remaster of Ram.
