On this and several other LP "changes" : Does "Monarch" belong on title line? I think not, it only needs to be listed in notes.

I have a white label promo of the American release of this album. It is in mono. It has a stereo jacket with the stereo catalog number of SD 2-700. The two LP's inside tell a different story. The CAT number on the individual LP's are 2-700. The matrix/runout numbers are as follows'
Side 1 C-12793-A
Side 2 C-12794-A
Side 3 C-12795-A
Side 4 C-12796-A
