I've updated the site with this one.

Also a Brown vinyl Warsaw in the standard sleeve has turned up.

Would appear talking to record stores here that a guy here may have got the pressings from the UK (could they be test pressings) and repackaged a couple here , he was known to do this sort of crazy thing with small number batches, might explain the one found in the normal warsaw sleeve??

It's possible that the brown vinyl Warsaw LP is some kind of test pressing as so few were made, but then it would be more likely to have plain white labels, not printed ones same as the other early pressings on black and red / yellow vinyl with the same matrix numbers and with the same printed labels. There are some early black vinyl Warsaw LPs with plain white labels, usually in plain generic sleeves, that may be test pressings, but many bootlegs have plain labels so who knows. My brown Warsaw LP also includes a blue vinyl 7"EP. The brown vinyl looks red if you hold it up against a strong light source, by the way.

Found a second one in Australia, so it is an Australasian release for sure!!, he bought it at Leedin Records in Melbourne in the early 80's, just arrived near mint so very happy!!
