Interestingly titled 'Mini-LP' version of the Shake Up The City single. However, it features the same three tracks as the UK 7" at 45 rpm? That's a 12" single in my book!

Released in Germany only on black vinyl. It features an enlarged version of the 7" single's artwork with a large black border. The yellow view finder markings that appear on the single version are missing.
