  1. So does anyone actually own this disc or has actually seen one? I’m wondering if it’s in fact just a myth or old clerical error or something. That this 45 never existed. However on PJ Noce’s YouTube channel, he has a video of a 45 playing that has the track Darling Goodbye, however the disc in the video has no label. I would love to know more about this if anyone has anything to add…
