Brilliant ska-inflected pop number featuring an infectious piano part from Lennon!

Guess it must seem quite fashionable nowadays to disparage "Ob-La-Di, Ob-La-Da" since it was detested during recording by The Beatles minus Paul. That goes the same for "Maxwell's Silver Hammer" from Abbey Road. Personally, I prefer making up my own head, as I love both tunes.

Sick of all the McCartney haters out there, too!

Folks who don’t understand Paul and with that find reason to hate him as an artist, please put Ram on your whatever. He’s all over the place with musical styles on his best solo LP. You can’t hold this songwriting beast down. Just can’t. Thank god or whomever!

A seller near me (not on Discogs) had this copy for sale, and I couldn't find it here to get more info. Manufactured by Parlophone, and appears to be for the West Indies market. I can't really make a new release just based on the photo, but was wondering if anyone had seen this pressing before (image uploaded to "postimages")

There's an other version with the good credits on it and on BIEM and not SACEM so it must be an original

I have to add that the B-side was in fact written by George Harrison of course, although the label credits Lennon-McCartney.
