Maurice's reaction to this track, "I don't think it's us but I quite like it". Originally, the song was written for Joe Cocker, but ended up recording themselves as this track was written in the style of Cocker's singing style, but in the end, it didn't suit the group's style as Barry would later agree that the song was a commercial failure in the Billboard Hot 100 by not reaching the Top 40, unlike the group's previous singles, "This was a mistake that Robert very rarely made". Barry rushed the track through, but it never reached Joe, who was given 'Delta Lady' by his management instead".
This song was recorded in 19 and 21 March in that year, its B-side "Sun In My Morning" and the unreleased song "Ping Pong" was finished to record in 19 March.
Released in the United States on 1 June 1969, the single charted only reached No. 54 on Billboard, but cracked the Top 40 on Cashbox, reaching No. 32. The B-Side is the notably acclaimed, Sun in My Morning, an often mentioned song citing its melodic haunting harmonies and guitar work. Its promotional video for this song is very rare; they are in a park with Barry and Maurice playing guitar and Petersen playing the drums. The band's manager, Robert Stigwood attempted the song to be released as a single. Maurice later revealed, "We've got another one that we'll put straight out of it doesn't make it".
