  Test pressing for the Profile release by Happaugue Record Manufacturing plant (HMR). First time I heard of this was in July 2013 when it was listed on Ebay by a US seller. The runout is inscribed with the US release ID for Profile Records' release of GWR's Orgasmatron: PAL 1223. The jacket is generic white with "Motorhead" handwritten across the top left. Labels are standard silver/grey H.M.R. labels with test pressing printed on them. Those labels were used by Hauppauge at the time in the mid 80s and maybe into the 90s. Nothing is handwritten on the labels.

The seller of the July 2013 Ebay copy said he "worked for a company in NYC doing marketing for lots of metal groups - mainly from the Noise & GWR labels. I kept some of the excess promotional materials from those days as souvenirs...picture discs & test pressings in addition to the normal releases".
