Dave has also had a long history with Ringo Starr and George Harrison and Paul McCartney and has a deep respect for John Lennon too.
So here’s Dave’s 10″ single featuring Instant Karma live at The Troubadour, and a video of The Spiritual Cowboys performing it live.
Instant Karma! was written by John Lennon and released as a single on Apple Records in February 1970. In the UK, the single was credited to “Lennon/Ono with the Plastic Ono Band”. The song reached the top 5 on the UK and US singles charts, competing with the Beatles’ “Let It Be” in America, where it became the first solo single by a member of the band to sell a million copies.
“Instant Karma!” was written, recorded and released within a period of ten days, making it one of the fastest-released songs in pop music history. The recording was produced by Phil Spector, marking a comeback for the American producer after his self-imposed retirement in 1966, and leading to him being offered the producer’s role on the Beatles’ Let It Be album (1970).
