withdrawn
Pye 7N 17088

This was scheduled for release in April 1966 but was eventually withdrawn. Only a few copies leaked out, hence the inflated price.

Goo Goo Barabajagal (Love Is Hot) b/w Bed With me

Donovan with the Jeff Beck Group
r. June 1969
Pye 7N 17778
could not chart
current mint value: £8

The first few hundred copies were printed with the first label. Then the record company changed its mind. They were probably worried about the risque title for the B-side, which is actually the original title for the song Trudi. Pye tried to recall the singles and only release the Trudi label. They failed (heh heh!) and some slipped out.
