USA Colgems Albums
Inner Paper Sleeves

 

This first Colgems sleeve began to show up on later pressings of the "The Birds.." LP.
I opened a sealed one and this sleeve (pictured above) was inside.

On the listings for "The Monkees" and "The Monkees' Headquarters"
..after the date of release its says "Special". What this means has always stumped me,
the only thing that comes to mind is that both LPs were reissued
to correct mistakes on the jackets.

Were they "Special" because they were reissued?

 

I have found these on copies of Instant Replay through Changes.
But not Golden Hits or Barrel Full Of Monkees.
Sometimes sleeves get switched around, so you never know.
