The Man” was scheduled to be the third single out of “Pipes Of Peace“, after “Pipes Of Peace” and “Say Say Say“. The release date was set for February 13th, 1984 (under the catalog number Parlophone R 6066). But after Paul and Linda’s drug bust in Barbados and London in January, the release got cancelled. Interestingly the B-side was to be the still unreleased as of 2020, “Blackpool“.

A 12″ version (Parlophone 12 R 6066″) was also scheduled with “The Man” [extended version]/”The Man” [instrumental version]”/”Blackpool”. The extended version has never surfaced.
