The release achieved top-5 status on both sides of the Atlantic, reaching number 5 in the United States and number 2 in the United Kingdom in April 1971. The song has been praised for McCartney's impressive range of pitch.
This B-side, "Oh Woman, Oh Why", is a tense, bluesy rocker with a rip-roaring vocal from Paul. Combined with drummer Seiwell's thunderous drumming, "Oh Woman, Oh Why" establishes a solid foundation upon which tight guitar lines interweave. McCartney's gritty vocal is one of his best and provides some convincing authenticity to this blues-based rocker. 
Although "Another Day" and "Oh Woman, Oh Why" were not originally released as part of a Paul McCartney album, they were released as bonus tracks on later editions of Ram. It was included on the Special and Deluxe editions of the 2012 remaster of Ram.
