Walls Ice Cream EP (Storm In A Teacup) label

In an attempt to reach a wider audience, Apple released this promotional EP to help stimulate interest in The Iveys, James Taylor, Jackie Lomax, and Mary Hopkin. Unfortunately, it didn't seem to help very much. The only new track on the EP was by The Iveys. The others were previously released album tracks (although they appear in mono here). The photos of The Iveys used on the picture sleeve were taken on February 23, 1969. The song was recorded at Morgan Studios on December 21, 1968 with Mal Evans producing, and was originally intended to be the follow-up single to "Maybe Tomorrow" after it had failed to chart in the U.K.

Notes from back of EP sleeve:

Pete Ham, Ron Jones (sic), Tom Evans and drummer Mike Gibbons (sic) are the new Apple Corps Group-the Iveys. An exciting quartet who are thought to be the most enjoyable group since the Beatles. The four hit London two years ago, they turned down several contracts because they only wanted to record their own compositions. Then they met Apple. Apple believes in their music. So will you when you hear "Storm In A Teacup" composed by Tom.
