not the UK 7" version surely, I think all of the original UK singles are still pretty common, mind you the one that TC has up looks slightly different, it appears to have a red diagonal text line top right hand corner?

I think the one I saw was a different cover.. just remember seeing rare, boy with the thorn in his side as a title with over 30 quid bidding.

Here's a cheap one on ebay if you want to look Truman.
