Obviously, there are three different flexis featuring the song Finland Red, Egypt White,
each of which with a different sequence of the track.

  • The first and present one comes in a cover as shown in the picture up left.
  • Unlike most other flexis, it is only 5" of size and runs at at 33⅓ rpm.
  • As usual, the flexi is recorded in mono on one side only without a b-side.
  • The cover consists of a b/w computer print on plain paper that does not
enfold the flexi in full as to allow a view of the vinyl colour.
  • Available colours known to exist are at least clear, green and yellow
(see the pictures down below).

  • As mentioned above, the song is split in three parts in total.
The other two parts come in slightly varying, but very different covers from the one here.
(see the pictures of the covers of "Part 2" and "Part 3" here on the right side).
  • These two flexis have the common 5.5" size and their tracks run at the usual 45rpm.
Check the large picture down below for an impression of the different size in comparison.
  • The known vinyl colours of "Part 3" to exist are yellow and clear,
while "Part 2" has so far surfaced only as a clear version.
