Matrix / Runout (Side A): PAR-1002-A KKmastering Matrix / Runout (Side B): PAR-1002-B KKmastering
An almost identical German counterfeit pressing from the early 1990's exists (This ain't one). The differences are noted in the pictures and in the matrix numbers. "KKmastering" is missing from the matrix in the bootlegs. The presumption that all white labels are German boots is false, Avatar/PAR released both silver and white labels, along with white label promos.
This is the real deal ep, bought this new from the same shop I bought their first album, Sirens. Both were recorded locally. Been in my collection ever since. Photos show proper matrix numbers.

Original owner, purchased new when released. Prior to play test none of my collection has seen a stylus in 35+ years. Blame it on CDs and the ignorance of youth 😎
All items visually inspected and vacuum cleaned. All items play tested.

Original sleeve and/or inserts placed inside jacket, vinyl in new rice paper lined poly sleeve outside jacket. 7"/12" singles in new poly on top of original sleeve. All placed in new 3 mil poly outer sleeve. Custom boxed in double layer cardboard w/bubble wrap for extra protection.

General policy is no returns, due mostly to eBay's much too long 30 day minimum. I grade conservatively and honestly, the records are exactly as listed. That said, if unhappy with your purchase for any legitimate reason drop me a message, I'm more than willing to work with you. The end goal is both parties are satisfied.  Cheers!
