Only You was released in the UK on 15 November 1974, the same day as Goodnight Vienne, the album it was taken from, and spent eleven weeks in the charts with a high of number 28. In the US it was released on 11 November 1974, one week before Goodnight Vienna, and managed thirteen weeks on the charts peaking at number 6.

It was John who suggested Ringo should record Only You, providing a vocal guide track for Ringo to sing over (which can be found in his Anthology box set) and adding acoustic guitar. Along with John, also appearing on the track are Billy Preston, Jim Keltner and Jesse Ed Davis. Harry Nilsson also adds backing vocals and appears in the video for the track that was filmed on top of the Capitol Records building in LA.

I have 3 copies as shown below

First Press, Push Out Centre

The pictures below are of my push out centre first press copy which has the matrix numbers 7YCE 21753 3 and 7YCE 21754-1U. It also has S45-48935-213 hand etched on the B side. Notice that the writing on the labels on both sides is a creamy colour whilst “Produced by Richard Perry” at 6 o’clock on both sides is silver. The record has the odd light mark but plays through excellently. The original card picture sleeve is in beautiful condition, hardly a mark to be seen.

Estimated Value : £3– £5

Notice this time that the writing on the labels on both sides is more of a silvery colour whilst “Produced by Richard Perry” at 6 o’clock on both sides is white. The record has the odd light mark but plays through excellently. The original card picture sleeve is in very good to excellent condition, some light shelfwear and ringwear.
