"Lemon Pie" was the second single pulled from Ghosts, an example of the lighter style of Dave's writing which was beginning to emerge again after the fairly bleak period following the break up of his first marriage. The song was written for and about Sarah, his then girlfriend, later his second wife.
The UK single, released on 4 Apr 1975, put Dave Lambert's "Don't Try To Change Me" on the B-side.
