Track List

Recording Notes

  • Both sides of the flexi feature an excerpt of the same song, i.e. Possession
The track on the a-side is visibly longer than the one on the b-side.
  • The recordings are in mono and play at 45 rpm.
  • The cover consists of a b/w computer print on plain paper and does not enfold the flexi in full, so that the vinyl colour is visible.
Other colours than the clear one shown here have so far not been traced.
  • Neither on the cover nor on the label is any note of the second track on Side B of the flexi,
while the catalogue# is identical with the one of the standard Possession flexi.

Possession - Flexi Side A (long track)
Possession - Flexi Side B (short track)

  • The scan of the a-side shows two rings of grooves. The inner ring appears darker and has no grooves on the opposite site.
The outer ring is brighter as the grooves of the short version on the backside shadow the inner ring.
  • The scan of Side B looks similar but the contrast of the rings differs since the long version of the song is not on the backside.
