Old Gold


Lightning Records started as an importer and distributor of Golden Oldies.   
In 1978, the company began licensing records and issuing them on the Old Gold label.

The singles were regularly re-pressed, and each were given whatever style of label was current
at that time leading to at least 5 label variations for the Monkees. (from 45-sleeves.com)

The picture sleeves were produced in the mid to late '80s.
