OK, here’s a weird one.  
I am assuming this is a fabrication. I can’t imagine why, but here is a screen shot of the Spirit In The Night vinyl promo as depicted in the video.  

4-45864 is in fact the matrix for the promo 45 of Spirit.  The typeface matches the real release exactly, but this shot has it looking like it’s an album by the number of tracks in the vinyl and the small spindle hole.  The Columbia 3-track promo 7” EP  with Spirit has a small hole, but a different design and completely different matrix, plus Spirit is not an isolated track on one side.   Just seems odd that the Columbia art department didn’t have an actual copy of file photo of the promo and had to (badly and poorly) recreate one.    

- Unless, you wish to believe that somewhere out there, there is a multi-track  45RPM 12” disc with all tracks being the same take of Spirit on one side, with the same catalog number as a 7” promo, not confirming to their numbering system for albums or 12” singles, and it has been hidden, unknown and undiscovered by collectors for 50 years……

I would like to buy a copy from anyone who has it.  I am offering a solid $10 bucks American for it in mint condition.  😃   $15 if it comes with a unique picture sleeve   😃😃   My generosity and compassion knows no bounds.

🤔.  I have way too much time on my hands today.

🤔. " I have way too much time on my hands today."

lol... You took the words right out of my mouth.

There are only a dozen human beings on the planet that would notice that.

Thank God all twelve are members here. 

Nice catch!
