rare france gall

after posting the marianne cover of 'a bientot nous deux', i then realised france gall had also covered it! view it here. amazing.
am i right in thinking this song isn't on vinyl or cd? so has anyone got an mp3 version? or can anyone make a good copy from youtube?
UPDATE - look in the comments for an mp3 from Gee!
