Listing Notices4
The first RCA Listing Notice list EPA-4041 to include the song Don't Leave Me Now and the second states the removal Don't Leave Me Now and to destroy all labels in favor of the replacement song Is It So Strange.

A copy of a cover was found in October 2012 with song titles on top; however note that the song titles differ where Don't Leave Me Now is printed instead of Is It So Strange. This observation of the song title difference went unnoticed by this site for several years. Thanks to the observations of Howard B.5 for bringing this to light. The original RCA Listing Notice6 lists Don't Leave Me Now which is scratched through with the replacement song of Is It So Strange. It was believed that only a copy of the cover exited until a find by Tommy. unearthed another cover along with the record that actually plays Don't Leave Me Now. His recent purchase in November 2017 of this record was purely accidental. He needed a copy of Just For You to add to his collection, and the rest is history. There is no logical reason for this record to exist, but it does. There are no recorded sales of a complete package of this catalog number with Don't Leave Me Now, but based on other oddities and one-offs, this one by our accounts should be in the conservative range of $3500 to $5000 in value.
