Side Two
SSK.89400.B E.G. S-4
Side Three
SSK.89400.C E.G. S-4

Thats just it though - there werent multiple pressing plants in the UK at the time - Atlantics were pressed by Polydor right? not EMI or Decca as they have their own telltale signs.

Why were a new set of plates made ? Unless it was to make some promo copies to promote it?

I admit I don't know much about the British recording industry, but there certainly had to be more than one pressing plant. I do know in the US, when a major act (for example...Led Zeppelin) put out a new record, Labels would contract work out to any pressing plant they could to meet demand. I have been told that a significant amount of the initial press run for PG came from Germany.
