does someone know anything about a pink splatter version !? all other data is the same as on this release page except for the matrix/runout... probably a bootleg.

green vinyl is a repro - actual original cat number is SB18026 - 18526 is the cat. number for the cassette - trivia: SB stands for Sam Bernett, founder of the Bernett label and a great radio man in France.
