The labels should be swapped on this entry so that the Europe Endless side is shown first. Europe Endless is the A-side, TEE is the B-side. Also, with regard to the other comment on here, the only reason I wanted this is because it's a 12" of Europe Endless, not for TEE. Both versions are exactly the same as the album. I would say the US promo 12" of TEE with the 5.42 version of TEE is the "one you want" if you want it for TEE because it has that brilliant edit as well as the full 13.38 album version.

This is the one you want. The first US promo-only 12" pressing, 45 rpm, thick, deep-grooved vinyl, small disco-style label, great mastering, great fidelity which sounds great on high-end analog equipment. The vinyl quality, pressing quality and fidelity of the second US promo-only 12", 33.3 rpm pressing on the large label is not as good, but is a viable plan B until you an find a collector-grade copy of this 12". It is too bad they never pressed a top-quality UK or German 12" of the full length 13:38 version when this was released in 1977 or shortly thereafter up until the early-1980s when the top pressing plants were still humming. Do not waste your time and money on any of the split-version 12"s unless you are just collecting catalog :-)
