Hammer To Fall - Live Sleeve

QUEEN Hammer To Fall (Ultra rare 1984 UK 7" vinyl single with an intact four prong centre, also including Tear It Up, within the magnificent WITHDRAWN 'live' glossy picture flapback sleeve. The flipbacks are square at the top and cut atangle on the bottom, the same as the 12" version. This example remains in a fantastic condition with minimal wear, whilst the vinyl is in 'near as new' condition with very little evidence of play. A oustanding genuine copy now very hard to find QUEEN4)

Tracklisting & More Information

It was always falsely reported that this sleeve was withdrawn at the request of Brian May, however it turns out not to be the case!

Brian stated on his own website in early 2007 in response to a letter asking why he requested the withdrawal of this sleeve that in fact he didn't request the sleeve be withdrawn - he actually preferred it but the record company felt that the sleeve was misleading and that the public would believe the song to be a live recording so the sleeve was withdrawn at the request of EMI.

Woolworths failed to receive the recall notice and they continued to sell the withdrawn sleeve for up to 5 days before their stocks ran out.

The sleeve has been counterfeited over the years and most are easy to spot as the vinyls on the bootlegs are usually coloured. Usually the black vinyl counterfeits have the word cassette mis-spelt on the back with just one 's'

Needless to say, this is NOT a counterfeit!
