About

From Wikipedia:

In Britain, Parlophone issued “Lady Madonna” backed by “The Inner Light” on 15 March 1968, with the catalogue number R 5675. The single was released three days later in the United States, as Capitol 2138. One of the promo clips was aired by the BBC on the 14 March edition of Top of the Pops and then on Alan Freeman’s All Systems Freeman the following day, and in the US on ABC-TV’s The Hollywood Palace on 30 March. In Everett’s description, the single was “at the forefront of a spring–summer 1968 rock-and-roll revival in the United Kingdom”, which included UK-exclusive reissues of singles by Gene Vincent, Carl Perkins, Jerry Lee Lewis, Buddy Holly and Little Richard.
