RCA France
"Sono Flash" Sampler


Released in May 1967

SON 5


A Little Bit Me, A Little Bit You


Sono is translated as a "stereo sound system".
These promo only records featured artists from RCA
and sampled about 30 seconds from each song.
They were probably shipped to stores so they could listen and decide what to order.

I've seen similar samplers in Italy and Germany.

It's dated May 1967, but that might have meant that these songs
were slated for release at that time because the Monkees EP (86.955)
mentioned on the back was released in March.

A voice in French opens each track with the name of the artist and song.
For the Monkees he says "Number one in Cash Box,
The Monkees, A Little Bit Me, A Little Bit You"

This song was #1 in Cash Box but only charted to #2 in Billboard.
