Colgems Little LPs

Little LPs were created for jukeboxes and as a promotional tool for the parent LP.
They played at 33 & 1/3 RPM, and unlike 45s and most EPs issued at that time,
they were only released in stereo.

This Billboard article has the Monkees release dates for their
two Little LPs as March 20 & 27, 1967.

March 25, 1967

Colgems/RCA decided not to release Headquarters or any other future Little LPs for the Monkees,
perhaps because the popularity of the format was waning. They did however, continue
to issue the singles for jukeboxes all the way up through "Oh My My".

Each cardboard sleeve has a picture of the LP on the front but were blank on the back.
3 mini-LP covers and a sheet of 10 title strips came with each record.

These were all pressed at the Indianapolis RCA plant.
