 Dave Holden in New Zealand owns the one with the blue EP. He bought it as part of a job lot of  250 collectible LPs and singles that had formerly belonged to a DJ and talk show host who'd accumulated a lot of rare and promo vinyl in the 1980s.

The LP was also issued on its own with an A4 insert sleeve, presumably because they pressed more LPs than covers, which states "This is the original US pressing".

The record & labels are identical to the reissued Box File "Warsaw" LP; the labels are black on green, and depict a drawing of a man reading a newspaper (same on both sides). The matrix number/run-off groove notations are JD-3 (side 1) and JD-4 (side 2). The track-lisiting is the same as the original (and Box File) version.

It appears that all three of the records in the reissue of the box set have been released individually in poor quality covers. Maybe they ran out of boxes
