Recording and release

This slow dramatic piano ballad was described by Robin Gibb in the liner notes of Tales from the Brothers Gibb box set as "...the dawning, or the closing, of the 'gotta find out who I really am' era." This track was the last song recorded for the album. "Don't Wanna Live Inside Myself" was recorded on April 7, the same day when they finished the tracks "Israel", "It's Just the Way" and "Engines, Aeroplanes".[1]

The single was released in November 1971, four months after the number 1 smash hit "How Can You Mend a Broken Heart" Considering that "How Can You Mend a Broken Heart" was a number 1, it was surprising that this did not even make the top fifty. With the success of "...Broken Heart", Atco Records was choosing ballads exclusively for Bee Gees singles during this time. This song along with "Walking Back to Waterloo" was released as a double A-side in Spain, Canada, Japan and the US. The album version of the song was faded at 5:24.

A promotional single issued by Atco in the US, featured the song in its mono and stereo versions on its respective sides.[2]
