Colgems updated their company
sleeves with the Head LP.




This was the first Monkees LP with the "Colgems Stereo Records may..."
found in a box on the rear jacket. The first Colgems LP was the
soundtrack to "Hammerhead" COS-110.


Production credits with "Jerry Goffin" named misspelled.
This mistake is later corrected as...


COSO-5008 RE


Corrected "Gerry Goffin"

With the corrected name an "RE" is added to the catalog number.

There are significantly less copies of the corrected version.

Side By Side Comparison


Rhino's Head LP also misspelled Gerry's name.

The Handmade Box Set finally got it right.
