A hastily thrown together EP version of Keep On Running, sneaked out by GEM in an attempt to boost sales, which failed as the label fold one month later. As well as the two original songs, it features the French version of Party In Paris that had previously only been available to fan club members, plus a demo version of Ice Age, a song which would subsequently feature on the next album Endangered Species.
The cover is exactly the same as the original release, but with the addition of the GEMEP 45 catalogue number under the original on the back, and also the cynically worded "EP version with 2 FREE tracks", on the front.
