One of Queen's rarest and most collectable singles - scare 'WITHDRAWN LIVE SLEEVE' of Queen's Hammer to Fall 12" single from 1984.
As collectors will know not many of these exist after it was decided to withdraw this single from sale due to the fact it might appear the single was a live version - nothing to do with the rights of the photographer. The message didn't get to Woolworths stores and so some got snapped up before being taken off the shelves and replaced with the plain red sleeve.
