Notes:
Recorded at Schloss Nörvenich on July 25th,1969, Monster Movie was originally released on Music Factory (20), in a private edition of 500 copies. Subsequent German releases on Liberty/UA GmbH used the original Music Factory masters, and retained their SRS 001 matrix inscriptions through at least 1975.

The Liberty/UA German pressings follow a linear chronology, beginning in August 1969:
Monster Movie has title+credit on one line / 'Liberty' rim text / printed by Linnepe / laminated
Monster Movie switches title & credit to two lines
Monster Movie introduces 'United Artists' rim text
Monster Movie introduces 'Druckhaus Maack' printer credit
Monster Movie switches to unlaminated sleeve / introduces new A-side cut
Many early Liberty/UA pressings carry an 'Electric Rock' sticker, in one of at least two designs. These correspond with a promotional campaign around Liberty/UA's Electric Rock (Idee 2000) compilation, issued in 1970. They are not however a reliable indicator of pressing date, as they appear on the earliest first pressings documented here, and may have been in use as late as 1973.

Mine came factory sealed but actually DOES have SRS001 A/B in the runouts. Did I hit the jackpot? Haha!
Otherwise sounds great. Only problem is the center hole is too narrow.

This is one of the first records I bought. When I was first getting into vinyl, I didn't know about discogs and this was what was available to order at the store I shopped at (Ear X-Tacy, RIP). Incredible, timeless music. Not a great pressing though IMO

My copy is identical to these 1969 issues in most regards, but has the same label as the pressing listed here as a 1973 reissue (the 'United Artists' rim text, song credits on second line). It has the first UA matrices (SRS 001 A 83 342-A), the original Carl v. d. Linnepe-printed sleeve, and a similarly placed 'Electric Rock' sticker which is white/rectangular instead of purple/oval. So, it's an early pressing from the first UA plates, with an original sleeve but a presumed later label.

This seems like a 1969 copy to me. Perhaps it's transitional, somewhere between the '69 originals and the '73 repress? But to complicate matters, I have seen copies for sale with the (presumed) very first all-on-one-line labels and the same white sticker as mine.

All of which is to say that I'm not convinced the label layout and rim text are a reliable indicator of pressing date.

Reportedly only 500 copies were made with the original Sleeve before being reissued.

This reissue was released most likely in 1984 as the price sticker on the back on my copy advises.
