it seems the idea that the horns indicate the true copy may not be true as the original big beat may have used an original "real" stereo master and the art on the back with the misinformation was carried over from the cd cover. After reading many threads all signs seem to indicate that the stamped matrix are original. Is there proof to the contrary or anyone who picked one of these up in 1997 that can chime in?

At the time of its release in 1968, the Zombies’ swan song LP was largely overlooked and ignored until nearly two years later when the irresistible “Time of the Season” finally scored as a hit single. One of the British Invasion’s most consistent groups (“She’s Not There,” “Tell Her No”), they had disbanded and it took years of accumulated critical goodwill for their album to attain its deserved status as a psychedelic classic. With mellotron, horns, interweaving harmonies and expansive melodies, Odessey and Oracle is one of the psychedelic era’s most adventurous and luxuriant albums. Singer Colin Blunstone uses his gentle, smoky voice for maximum effect, adding a gorgeous melancholy to the piano and choir chamber pop of “A Rose for Emily,” a cautious joy to the Penny Lane-like “This Will Be Our Year,” a jaunty teasing to the Beach Boys-Kinks-Turtles pastiche of “Care of Cell 44” and a seductive come-on to “Time of the Season.” The album is a production masterpiece, balancing the era’s thirst for new sounds with the needed economy to keep the songs properly grounded.

This LP does NOT feature the original mono mix. It's a folddown of the stereo. Care Of Cell 44 is the full length version and Time Of The Season doesn't have the extra organ notes as heard in the true mono mix. Nice curiosity though.

Mint copy review:
Quite a bit of crackle throughout despite cleaning and brushing with an anti-static brush. Disappointing.

So how long does this usually take for a decent one to appear for sale? Better yet, why is mono usually the rarest thing when it comes to every pressing. Yet it ends up superior!!!
Update: finally got a mono pressing, have fun selling those guys.

Ok so I have just received a copy of this Big Beat pressing, purchased for £10, not sealed so has been used but is pretty much N/Mint. Everything looks authentic, cover and labels are clear and not “fuzzy”, and it’s the stamped matrix copy. I can confirm that there is no brief whisper during the intro to ‘Changes’, and there are categorically NO horns during ‘TWBOY’!! So definitely is not a mono version for ‘TWBOY’. Overall the sound quality is excellent and it’s a nice quiet vinyl, but as ‘TWBOY’ isn’t mono as advertised on the back of the cover, then surely this cannot be a genuine copy (??). Common sense would suggest a stamped matrix should indicate a true copy as that’s true for 99.9% of stamped original pressings as opposed to their etched bootleg counterparts (etching being easier to fake than stamping), but this certainly throws that theory out of the window......well at least for this version. In any case the copy I have does sound great regardless, and will be a more than adequate substitute until I bag an original mono copy that’s not being trashed and can be picked up for a bargain price.......hopefully a seller at some point doesn’t realise quite what they have and advertises it wrong on eBay....oh and this seller also has an original drag cover of Bowie’s TMWSTW.......what are the odds??!! ;-)

Great reissue, if you don't want to drop hundreds on an original, get this one. Great sound and great album. All I could complain about is that the record isn't 180g. Other than that, all around good.

So far on the Zombies O&O thread:
https://forums.stevehoffman.tv/threads/zombies-odessey-and-oracle-best-pressing.733452/page-8#post-21181827
we have reasoned forth that there exist etched matrix copies from the late 90s, one example has "WIKD 181-A / B" only and an "MA" initial marking standing for Maxwell Anandappa who worked for Damont. Damont also existed between 86 and 2006 before they closed.
One way to possibly also identify an early copy is if there are horns on This Will Be Our Year. This likely means that a legit analog source was used but of course its possible to use multiple sources for a record cut.
Its all still up in the air on whats good and not. There also exist etched runouts with dotted lines instead of fully etched, those seem to not be of legit sources, and some stamped versions also seem much later and not very good.
