Sides 3 & 4 was supposed to be a repressing of Compassion Is A Virtue IMP 1-30 but a mix-up happened with the masters and some sets had LP 1 of Music For Palaces by Brian Eno(Centrifugal label) instead.

Eno Music For Palaces

This eBay text than shows that this worked the other way around as well:

“BRIAN ENO – Music For Palaces (2LP)
Rare 2LP Centrifugal Rec. Label, Deluxe Cover
Sides 3-5 Studio
Sides 1 & 2: This disc is the Talking Heads Compassion Is A Virtue But…’ (Impossible Recordworks 1-30). Undoubtedly it should have been Brian Eno’s ‘Floating In Sequence* (same label and number)”
