LEMON PIE
A&M, 1975

Lemon Pie

Release date: 4 Apr 1975 (UK)

"Lemon Pie" was the second UK 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.

Different territories chose different B-sides:

  • UK, Australia and New Zealand went with "Don't Try To Change Me"
  • US, Canada and South Africa chose "Where Do You Go"

    After thinking that this did not get to full release, a full release copy has turned up to go with the promo.


    This replaces a copy bought from Zimbabwe, where its owner at some point has handwritten the SA release details on the label of side 1 (for the real SA release, see below). In the package was a thousand dollar note - Zimbabwe dollars that is ... about two quid!


    US vinyl

    Canadian promo release

    The promo white label features an "edited version" of the A-side. The B-side is thought to be the same as the released version.
