The 45 pictured below was scheduled for global release by Harvest, but scrapped by Steve Barnett at the last minute. The b-side was the original French mix of the song One of Our Own.
Note: "Scandinavia" (French mix) is listed as the b-side on the included image, which matches the listing of the aborted releases on Amazon.fr.  The other supposed vinyl singles included "Istanbul", "Kiss Me A Lot" and "Neal Cassady Drops Dead", featuring French mixes of "Smiler With Knife" and "Art-hounds", along with the aforementioned "Scandinavia".
