Press Release

Stereo copies of the first 3 LPs are harder to find
as mono was produced and sold in far greater quantities.

1969 Reissue

Notice the copyright is also worded slightly different.

This version is easy to spot with the big Colgems circle in the bottom right-hand corner.

We know that it was standard practice for RCA/Colgems to add an "RE"
when any one side of a record sleeve was revised or corrected.

Although the "RE" is added to both catalog numbers, only the stereo version was actually issued
because mono was phased out in 1968.
