WEA Records 1983 Cat No Truth 2T (249673-0)
The 12" records are alot harder to get hold of because they have more tracks on - simple
This means you are looking at 20 on ebay or web retailer for this.

B/W
Flesh And Fantasy
Don't Tell Me
WEA Records 1984 Cat No YZ1T UPC 24-9496-0

Well worth having for the extra track "Don't Tell Me", a downbeat song that was quite different at the time for The Truth.
Available on ebay and vinyl web dealers for around 15

B/W
Everlasting Love
Second Time Lucky
IRS Records 1984 Cat No IRSX112
The Mighty Five Live EP.
At the time the band weren't that happy with the mix,
it was apparently done strait after the gig so Chris Skornia's hammond
gets drowned out by the backing vocals.
Nitpicking aside this is one of The Truth's finest moments.
Available on ebay and vinyl web dealers for around 10





Playground
B/W
Don't You Just Know It
I'm A Man (Live)
Recorded Live at The 100 Club on 4th August 1984
Illegal Records 1984 Cat No Truth T3
The best single ever ? I think so, but what is evident at this stage is a change of direction.
Not only in the harder sound of this single but in the guitar solo of "I'm A Man",
Dennis is let off the hook and begins to 'blues' his way back to Nine Below Zero.
Available on ebay and vinyl web dealers for around 7
