GERMANY
RCA Singles 1

 

Chart positions by
Ed Reilly's book "Monkees: A Manufactured Image", and Billboard.


RCA Victor records were made at the Teldec-Press GmbH,
a vinyl manufacturing plant in Nortorf, Germany.

Germany received the songs via the UK, however they didn't issue
picture sleeves so the artwork was slow in getting to Germany.
The ones without the Monkees on the cover
or some of the alternative sleeves were early pressings
before the proper artwork had arrived.
