A vinyl 12’’ was produced in Australia for promotional purposes. Very rare and expensive now.

Any idea what the B-side would have been?
Listen as Hope and Peace try to rhyme,
Listen over marching bands playing out their time.

On that one, the B-side had:

Luminous Times
Spanish Eyes
Silver & Gold

Nice selection!

Am I alone in thinking TTYW is the worst track on the album?

As a stand-alone track it's nothing special, really. But it serves a purpose on the album -- it's kinda fun and lighthearted but still evokes that American landscape. If something like Heartland replaced it, it would make the album too heavy and monochromatic, even though Heartland is a way better song imo.

Doubt the song would have had much of an impact as a single.  It's definitely a track I do enjoy though.

Agreed. Red Hill would’ve worked as a single, though.

Very much so.  That was actually the plan as well since RHMT was supposed to be the followup single to WOWY.  It's a shame that the song was viewed to be so difficult to pull off in a live setting.
