This is where things get more challenging. There were tons of versions of the Freddie's Dead single. I'm still finding new ones. Most of them contain various mixes of that song. They are generally pretty easy to find. The UK picture disc is weirdly rare. It is not that expensive if you can find it, but it is much more scarce than any other record on this page. The Japanese CD was a 3" single - that one is quite difficult to find.
