QED I think. The listing on discogs is incorrect, the scans of the label confirm as well: there are six tracks on the second side of the US original.

While mold and prejudice are two of the things I dislike the most, it is the latter which always proves to be the hardest to deal with in the end, whether around or within myself. Like many long-time fans of the Groovies, I was prejudiced against Supersnazz, even after I finally heard it. Of course, I eventually came to my senses and realized the richness which lied therein. For it was gonna be their own Sgt. Pepper, and damn if they didn’t kinda come close, in their own special rock n’roll way, mind you. Half of it is for the rockin’ good times, a few mindless pre-Detroit romps (“Love Have Mercy” could’ve been on Sneakers) that, no matter how looney they appeared to be (“The First One’s Free”), would only acquire a real, definitive sense of danger a year or so later. But I tell you, the other half couldn’t be found anywhere else if you tried, with sounds that rank among the most interesting ever associated with the name “Flamin’ Groovies”. I mean “Laurie Did It”, what is this? What is this sudden Stoogesque beat in the middle part, followed by some organ coming out of nowhere, and Roy Loney’s sweetest vocals ever, what are those godly back-vocals? And the saturation at the end of the first guitar solo? Then there’s “A Part From That”. Carried by some killer Simon & Garfunkel-type close harmonies, along with beautiful string arrangements by the late great Jack Nitzsche, this brief delicacy sticks out about as much as “She’s Falling Apart”, that delightful piece of psychedelic pop, would on Flamingo. “Brushfire” extrapolates on the laid-back acoustic stuff found on the essential California Born And Bred comp, while “Bam Balam”, another Sneakers-type toon, is an upbeat curiosity worthy of interest if only because it provided the name for an Australian rock n’roll band, a long-standing record shop in Bordeaux, France, and a Spanish power-pop record label. It’s also interesting and somewhat unusual to hear the band pull some kind of San Francisco move on “Around The Corner”. The Groovies went on to greater things after Supersnazz, and never really touched that stuff again, but it sure was FUN and SPECIAL while it lasted.

just wanted to triple clarify here, Around The Corner is not on the US Epic BN 26487 but is on every release since right? 5 tracks a side seems more in keeping.
