I posted the original US release already here.

This is a very rare “Electra” pressing (made in Germany for Swedish market) with flip side misspelled “MT BABY LEFT ME”.

List price:  Swedish releases are not in the catalog. One of these rare, misspelled pressings was sold in eBay for 401 euros 10 years ago.
