All these records have the same matrix numbers but they do have different suffix numbers.

The Demo’s are all A1A

The solid label is A1F and the pink vinyl is A2R

There are lots of the push out issues, known suffix’s are: A1AB, A1B, A1C, A1G (this version has a mis-pressed B side - plays a different artist)

A1J, A1M, A2B, A2H, & A2M

The pink vinyl record is not an official RCA release but was pressed in the RCA factory

These records are translucent and it is very hard to reproduce the colour
