Love Battery's first semi-full-length release, the six-song Between the Eyes EP, had many incarnations. It was licensed to Tupelo for European release (12") and Waterfront for Australian release (10"). The Australian version was available on yellow and black vinyl. The U.S. Sub Pop version was never released on vinyl, but did come out on Sub Pop on cassette and CD the next year. The prices for all of the above are fairly stable now. Each of the vinyl versions can be a bit scarce now, but the Tupelo one is most common.
