This John Lennon song was a top 5 hit for John & Yoko in Britain in 1972. In 1985 the Lennon classic became a fundraiser for threatened southern Australian fairy penguins, when Ian Molly Meldrum convened a star studded session. The Incredible Penguins were oddly enough an actual band that happened to enjoy the guest vocal backing of Angry Anderson, Jim Keays, John Farnham, Brian Mannix, Colleen Hewitt, Steve Gilpin, Venetta Fields, Colin Hay, Wendy Stapleton, Brain Canham, Hare Krishna Chorus and Bob Geldof. Here to download is that single along with the Radio Mix and Instrumental version "Happy Xmas (War Is Over)" (X13232). The single was produced by Ian Molly Meldrum and recorded at Flagstaff Studios Melbourne for Mushroom Records on October 21,22,26 & 31.
