Rare error pressing

Hello fellow parrot heads,
I have a pressing of "Havana Daydreamin'" which I am calling an error lp.
It has 2 versions of "Second Wind" and "Please Take Your Girlfriend Home".
The label lists "woman going crazy" and Defying Gravity", but those songs are
not on the lp. I wrote to The Coconut Telegraph years ago, and the response I got
was that this lp is "extremely rare". Is anyone familiar with this mistake lp? I'm
curious what the value might be. I switched from vinyl to cd's way back when. I haven't had
a turntable in years, but I hung onto this record. Maybe it's time for it to find its true home.
Thanks for any input. "Some of its magic, some of its tragic, but I've had a good life all the way." :finsup:

Would be interested in giving a good new home. Currently collecting JB's discography on vinyl. Also about to move from Birmingham, AL down to Fairhope, AL where JB spent so much time. Let me know.

I'd be willing to re-home this unique vinyl once I have an idea what
it's fair value is. It is a used lp, but not abused. Minor surface wear but
no obvious deep scratches. I only played it a couple times once I figured out what it was.
We have a few nice vinyl stores around here. Maybe I'll take it in and see what they say.
I welcome input from my fellow parrot heads on possible sights to figure this one out.
Thank you. :finsup:

It is not as rare as you might think and it is not an Error pressing either, here is the story behind that album.

When Jimmy first started working on it, the working title was Second Wind and the song "Kick it in Second Wind" was to be the title track. This was to be the planned track listing:

Side One
Kick it in Second Wind
My Head Hurts, My Feet Stink, And I Don't Love Jesus
The Captain and the Kid
Big Rig
Please Take You Drunken Girlfriend Home

Side Two
Woman Going Crazy on Caroline Street
Something So Feminine About a Mandolin
Train To Dixieland
Wonder Why You Ever Gome
This Hotel Room

There are in fact test pressings of the album in the form that have been found by ardent collectors over the years.

For reasons that are not known Jimmy decided to make changes to the album including the addition of the song "Havana Daydreamin" and dropping Please Take Your Drunken Girlfriend Home and Train to Dixieland from the album however before the final version was pressed at least one demo version was pressed and copies of which were inadvertently shipped to record stores with the final album. These demos are not as rare or valuable as the test pressing is however.

This is exactly why I decided to post this here. Thank you sincerely for the info.
I inadvertently bought a used record a long time ago that was not what it appeared to be.
I only discovered the differences when I bought the cd. Still, I don't imagine they are making
any more of these. I no longer have a turntable in my system. It should not be sitting in my closet.
I'm sure at this point it will head where it belongs.
Thank you again.
