This is the SRC pressing with black labels on the empty side of both records. There is also an ARC pressing which can be differentiated by its empty-side label color (white) and runout etchings: Master Mixes.

This is a limited edition release of two single-sided records, issued in a stickered white gatefold jacket that is enclosed in a sealed, stickered non-shrink wrapper.
It also includes a letter-size sheet of paper with remix credits printed on it.
The sticker and paper bear both cat#s.
The records, packaging, and remix sheet are all professionally typeset, using a typewriter-style font and accompanied by Masterdisk Corporation logos, all in order to make the release resemble a test pressing.
It is, however, an official, commercial release on Capitol Records.

The last track is listed as "Notoriousaurus Rex (Master Mix)" on the insert, and as "Master Mix (Notoriousaurus Rex)" on the jacket and label.

A1, C1 remixed for Pop Stand Productions. A3 remixed for S.O.S. Productions. A2, A3, C2 edited for S.O.S. Productions.

"MASTERDISK" and "SRC" logos are machine-stamped in the dead-wax.
"HW" is inscribed under Masterdisk in the dead-wax.

"Original versions can be heard on the album, NOTORIOUS, PJ-12540"

As stated above this is not a promo or test pressing and the giveaway clue is that on the back of the gatefold is a barcode sticker and 'Manufactured by Capitol Records Inc....'
And of course you don't normally get barcode stickers on promos. To keep up the illusion of something more interesting than a commercial release there is even a typo on label 1 ('SE' has been re-typed as 'SC' with the C superimposed on the original E. How desperate these record companies get !
