- Catalogue#: 2623
- Release date: - unknown, early 1990s
- Place of Release: Russia
|Side A||Duration||Side B||Duration|
|Gimme Shelter||5:59||Something Fast||4:36|
- The recordings are in mono and play at 45 rpm.
- As usual for the double-sided flexis, there is no note of the second track on Side B 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.
- Most remarkably, a further double-sided flexi with the same catalogue# and cover art does exist - in that case a blue one,
- The cover consists of a b/w computer print on plain paper and does not enfold the flexi in full, so that the vinyl colour is visible.
- Other colours than the green one shown here have so far not been traced.

- Especially in enlargement and comparison, these pictures make clear, that there are two tracks on this flexi, while there is only one on the regular version.
- It is also visible that the track on the a-side is longer than the one on Side B. The groove on Side A has a notably defined start and ending, while the one on
- the b-side does obviously start later into the vinyl and end earlier.
