It reached number four in the UK EP charts, and spent a total of 18 weeks in the rundown. Its low chart ranking can be attributed to the superfluousness of the release, although it did feature a new cover photo taken by Robert Whitaker.

Nowhere Man, The Beatles’ 12th official EP, was the last convential one released prior to the special double set Magical Mystery Tour in 1967.
