Recording sessions for most of the tracks were from October 1972 through to January 1973 at the Apple Studios in Saville Row, although the backing track for "Try Some, Buy Some" was done two years earlier !
The album did very well for George in the U.K. album charts where it reached number 2. It was kept off the top slot by the original soundtrack album to the film "That'll Be The Day" ... which ... has Ringo as one of it's stars !
The very glossy gatefold cover, also included some colourful and full packaging.
The front cover photography was by Kendall L. Johnson, with the picture inside the gatefold being by Ken Marcus.
The right-hand on the front cover is holding (what looks like to me) an Indian scene, whereas the left-hand is clearly holding money. A U.S. dollar at the top.
If you could see my messed up inner gatefold cover shot above, you`d see that George is hosting an expensive lunch on the lawns of his Henley-on-Thames home. He is raising a glass to the musicians who are seated left to right, Gary Wright, Jim Horn, Klaus Voorman, Nicky Hopkins, Jim Keltner and Ringo.
Talking of the cover and Jim Keltner, there is also an odd addition on the back, where Jim's name is printed in-between what definately looks like the "Wings" set of wings, and says : Jim Keltner fan club - For all information send a stamped undressed elephant to 5112, Hollywood Boulevard, Hollywood, California.
