No, I think the True Blue 45 is hard to find because it was only out one time. It would have come out for Christmas of 1978 with the special, and the following year they quit making store stock 45's. They may have sold leftover stock in 1979, but I think by then they wouldn't have been making any more. Although it's curious that the 45's on the back cover of LP's continued to be listed until 1983, so maybe they were pressing them, but decided not to make any more new ones. At this point (1981) they were getting into the BR/BT book and record/tape sets, so maybe they were phasing out the singles. Either way, it would make sense that there are fewer copies of it, because it was only sold at Christmas.

And the Al Jarreau 45 is interesting. It's a mono/stereo promo of One Good Turn (so AM stations played the mono side and FM stations played the stereo side), but it's got the same number as the "real" copy with the other song on the B-side. So it matches the chart, but I'm still hoping for a picture of the store stock copy, because I saw a listing for sale a long time ago, but there was no picture.

And I totally forgot about that other promo from Sesame Disco! I went back in the history, and it looks like you had found the information on that one a long time ago, so thank you for finding the text ''and'' the picture!<ac_metadata title=""> </ac_metadata>

No, I think the True Blue 45 is hard to find because it was only out one time. It would have come out for Christmas of 1978 with the special, and the following year they quit making store stock 45's. They may have sold leftover stock for Christmas of 1979, but I think by then they wouldn't have been making any more. Although it's curious that the 45's on the back cover of LP's continued to be listed until 1983, so maybe they were pressing them, but decided not to make any more new ones. At this point (1981) they were getting into the BR/BT book and record/tape sets, so maybe they were phasing out the singles. Either way, it would make sense that there are fewer copies of it, because it was only sold at Christmas.

And the Al Jarreau 45 is interesting. It's a mono/stereo promo of One Good Turn (so AM stations played the mono side and FM stations played the stereo side), but it's got the same number as the "real" copy with the other song on the B-side. So it matches the chart, but I'm still hoping for a picture of the store stock copy, because I saw a listing for sale a long time ago, but there was no picture.
