  • The recordings are in mono and play at 45 rpm.
  • There is no information about the second track on the b-side of the flexi neither on the cover nor on the label,
while the coverart and the catalogue# are identical with the Gimme Shelter flexi that is featured on the a-side.
  • As there are two flexis with the song Fix in different length in existence,
it is not known, whether the track featured here is the short or the longer version, see Fix (flexi)
  • Beyond these, another double-sided flexi with the same catalogue# and cover art does exist as well - in that case a green one.
It has, however, the song Something Fast on the b-side, see Gimme Shelter - Something Fast (double-sided flexi).
  • The cover is as usual a b/w computer print on plain paper not enfolding the flexi in full,
so that the vinyl colour is visible. Other colours than the blue one here have not surfaced as yet.

  • This blue double-sided flexi shows especially well the difference of the track length on side a and b,
and although the picture of the standard version is relatively blurred, it still comes clear that there is only one track on it.
