Allmusic and Wikipedia show just "So Long Eric" and "Praying With Eric."

Spotify has only two songs as well (with the same track timings as Allmusic and Wikipedia), but calls them "So Long Eric (Don't Stay Over There Too Long)" and "Playing With Eric." All copies available for sale online appear to also have just these two tracks (with the second broken up on vinyl issues to accomodate the length of one side of an LP).  - CD
