    Great job Matt!!
    About Searching singles, there are 2 commercial releases in Germany, One CD5 and a CD Single cardsleeve, both with the same cover, those was also withdrawn? And what about the Searching UK promos? I see most sites sell both as withdrawn too (I refer the promos with the swimming pool and the Black cover with 'X' and the star from logo).
    Best regards.
