Island Records – 12 IS 807 / 063 961-1
12", 33 RPM, Single, Promo, Mispress
Design: Keith Tamashiro
A scarce mispress sent from the label to slected stores as a promo, with "Mello Mike Live" and a unique "(Letter From Home)" as B-sides.
MML is an heavy distorded live mix with fast rhythm cow bells in a funky style, seemingly recorded indoors. It remains unknown when and where it was recorded. It also appears on a Six Days CD-R.
As it looks exactly like the street release, the only way to tell the difference is by scrutinizing the dead wax symbols, here:
