weren't there represses that had cat nos LION1/2/3 that featured different tracks to the original LIONs?

i may be wrong about this but just seem to remember that being the case

From the list I had some time ago @ http://www.congonatty.com :

LION 001 - Black Star ft Top Cat: Champion Deejay / Kunte Kinte
LION 002 - Conquering Lion feat. Supercat: Code Red
LION 003 - Conquering Lion: Inah Sound / Ras Project
LION 004 - Princess Lydia / Rastaman feat. Beenie Man / Blessed
LION 005 - X-Project ft Frankie Paul & Tenor Fly: Jah Sunshine / ?
...

Looking these up,
the LION3 one is that one that's etched RAS PROJECT b/w INAH SOUND with the tracks mentioned here;

either LION2 or LION4 is the catalogue of the Princess Lydia EP
http //rolldabeats.com/release/2395/congo_natty_records/princesslydia
- or, LION2 is the plate etched PRINCESS LYDIA FOREVER b/w LION JUNGLE
and LION4 is the plate etched RASTAMAN b/w BLESSED
- or, the "Princess Lydia EP" was simply a bundling of LION2 & LION4 that happened at some point... or maybe even didn't... sch_pr here indicates that single plates were common;

the LION1 one appears to have been a straight white label repress of the original LION1.

this link here confirms much of this detail
