Does anybody know if this actually exists?

I have a catalog number of E-67975 for this, but I have yet to actually see any proof that it is real. I am trying to flesh out the singles pages on Queenpedia and would love to know if this really is a genuine item.

You know I've never seen the 7" although I have the 12". I think it was a promo.

Your Live Killers 7" singles page is broken, linkwise.

I have a 12-inch. Not the 7-inch.

This thread is sounding increasingly dirty.

Well yes and no....

There are 2 different US 12" Promos, both featuring Staying Power as the A side (Cat #0-67854, Cat #0-67954). Both feature Back Chat as the B-Side. One (0-67954) features an extended version of Back Chat while the other features the album version.

However (and this starts to get confusing) there is also a Back Chat 12" promo with Staying Power as the B-Side (Cat #0-67975). This also features the extended version of Back Chat. A 7" promo also exists (Cat #7-69941)

Is is possible that Staying Power was originally going to be the single but was pulled in favor of Back Chat? It may have even been assigned a catalog number (similar to Man on the Prowl in the UK). This could explain why this catalog number is floating around but nobody ever seems to have seen a copy of it.

I have the extended Back Chat 12-inch version, Staying Power as the B-side, as well as a white sleeve Staying Power with Back Chat as the B-side. So yes, it is a complicated thing. I have never seen a 7-inch Staying Power. And I've sort of made it my mission to have all things Hot Space. Curious to see if you find/spot one.
