LP Slicks

 

Mono was phased out by RCA/Colgems in 1968 so this was the last USA release
of a Monkees LP in this format. It seems as if only a few hundred copies were pressed,
as most collectors have never even seen one for sale.

Some foreign countries also pressed this LP in mono, but not all have the unique
dedicated mix found in this USA pressing. The "fake mono" was created
by condensing the stereo mix into one channel.

A list of countries and their mono mixes.

This mono LP had some unique mixes for "Auntie's Municipal Court",
"Dream World" and "Tapioca Tundra".

Now you can listen to the mono mixes through Rhino's Handmade Box Set.
