Test marketed, in only 3 main cities, Seattle, Washington, being one of them, this extremely limited, One-Sided 45, was issued.
CBS was seeing if the single was dying due to price or other factors. These retailed for 69 cents NEW.
ADDED TODAY, from a kind eBayer ... Thank you.

A CBS Records person I knew at the time said the logic behind this was
having only to pay writing/publishing royalties on 1 side meant they could
sell the 45 for less. Turned out this test was a dismal failure as record
retailers hated this because it meant racking 2 versions of a single if they
carried this one and the ''real'' one. Since 45s at this point were mainly
manufactured for jukebox operators and they bought well over half of them on
many titles, this 1-sider couldn't be sold into that market so all the pool
of buyers for them was at the retail level.
1982 ... EPIC # ENR-03372.
This Girl Is Mine .... B/W .... B L A N K.
This 45 will come in its SPEICAL CBS Company sleeve and will be packaged in a protectiv
