Chart positions by RPM Weekly

The promo sleeves were distributed weekly by RCA to hype their newest records.
Most had a short bio on the artist/music in English and French,
or they had RCA's top 10 list for that week.

It looks like these sleeves were only produced from January 1965 to April 1967,
with the year & week of distribution found on the sleeve
noted as "67- 8"; as in the eighth week of 1967.

These two non-Monkee picture sleeves mention their first singles:


These were the top 10 RCA singles
for that week.

A Little Bit Me, A Little Bit You/
She Hangs Out

 

66-1003
Promo Only

This was a "Special" release.
Perhaps that meant a record that was rushed released,
as Don Kirshner gave the tapes to RCA Canada and they immediately
pressed and distributed this single.

The CHUM radio station in Toronto Ontario,
listed the original B-side for 3 weeks:

 

"Hot New Hit"

(no pics)

February 20, 1967

 


February 27, 1967 (#38)

 


March 6, 1967 (#8)


After this it was withdrawn,
and it no longer listed the B-side:


March 13, 1967 (#4)


The record was available to the public for 2-3 weeks,
before it was withdrawn. For such a short release,
its surprising how easy it is to find copies for sale today.
