Because both sides charted in the top 100 on US Billboard,
this became the 6th and final double A-sided single for the Monkees.

Billboard Trade Ad:

Picture Sleeves:


Type 1

 


Type 2

Both sleeves are East Coast versions.

What is East Coast?

Someday Man, the original A-side was heavily promoted in trade ads and was designated as the 'plug side'
on the promo single. However, DJs began to recognize the superiority of the B-side, and this justified
Colgems making an updated picture sleeve with "Listen To The Band" above "Someday Man".
The weird thing is that this is one of the few sleeves that didn't highlight the B-side on the reverse,
which forced them to print up these second versions.
