Alfredo, is your Australian single a promo, or a stock copy? I've never even seen one of those for real, and I've been obsessed with it since seeing an Australian Zappa single once which looked the same.
Hi David

Yes, it is stock copy with original Verve Australia company sleeve.

Never seen a promo of this Aussie baby

Thanks for the pics. It never fails to amaze me that a vintage VU single was released in Australia. As much of a holy grail as it would be to find a copy, even more stunning would be to find somebody here who actually walked into a store and bought a copy at the time.

ETA: I just noticed that this weekend is 22 years since I first heard the banana album. I better go and listen to it to celebrate!
