Only one I've found where one of the matrix numbers match what I have. Side B variant 4. My Side A has the same 1K at the end of matrix. Also, label is JC-34165 as opposed to PC.

The 8th track's exact title is Lick and "a" promise Could somebody correct this ? It has been wrongly duplicated on all the releases.
