Beige/Pink versions are just old white EPs that have colour changed over time. My version, bought in ‘78, was white for about 30 years, but has changed to beige/pink over the last decade or so.

My copy is not bright white, and has hints of brown spots. Almost splattered. It’s neither beige or white, so hard to say if it’s the mispress or the white version. Guess I’ve to live with it;)

To be quite frank I am not clear why you call this 'beige' I have one here in my hand and it is a 'dusty pink' or whatever you want to call it...pink but NOT beige and it doesn't even show as 'beige' in your pics

Track D2 recorded live Nov 22 1977 at the Hope and Anchor in Islington, London - an important mid-70s live venue for (first) pub rock and (later) punk bands. A series of recordings from around this time resulted in this album: http://www.discogs.com/Various-Hope-Anchor-Front-Row-Festival/master/194567
