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


Two versions of the LP jacket were released.


"Producers Cover"

COS-103


Stereo

 

COM-103


Mono


This photo on the reverse was mislabeled:
sitting to the left of Producer Chip Douglas is engineer Dick Bogert,
not Hank Cicalo.

 


"Beards Cover"

COS-103 RE


Stereo

 

COM-103 RE


Mono


When RCA/Colgems revised or corrected any one side of an LP jacket,
an "RE" was added to that side.


Updated photo

This second pressing was mostly likely done in late 1967 or early 1968,
because by late '68 mono was being phased out.

There were less copies made with this second cover; that being said,
it would seem many were pressed as you can usually find a copy on ebay.

Labels

Early copies misspelled Micky's name as "Mickey" on
the "Randy Scouse Git" credits.
