‘Ding Dong, Ding Dong’ was issued as a single in the UK on 6 December 1974. Too late to make an impact on the Christmas market, it peaked at number 38 and spent five weeks in the charts.
‘I Don’t Care Any More’ was said to have been written about the legal action regarding plagiarism over similarities between his ‘My Sweet Lord’ and The Chiffons’ ‘He’s So Fine’.
In the United States the single was issued on 23 December 1974 with ‘Hari’s On Tour (Express)’, a Dark Horse album track, as its b-side. It fared only slightly better, reaching number 36, but became a popular New Year song.
