Dear fellow record collector's,

how do I tell if I've got this version of Beggars Banquet, or if it is this one

My matrix variation isn't any of them (the matrix in my run out groove ends with 1K on both side A and B), and I can't tell any other difference between the two releases.

Can anybody tell me what to look for? And - if there is no difference, should I ask for a merge between the two releases?

best regards,
