US single release: Lady Madonna

Three days after its UK release, The Beatles' Lady Madonna single was issued in the US.

The single was released as Capitol 2138. As with the UK version, it had George Harrison's The Inner Light on the b-side.

Lady Madonna was not a great commercial success in America, and only managed to reach number four in the charts. It was, however, the last Beatles single to be released on Capitol; subsequent ones were one their own Apple label.
