LATEST UPDATES:

 

JULY 19:

As expected, MOTM wins the ROG contest. It's interesting that the two records the Monkees were competing against got bumped to the next contest, leading me to believe this was just set up to create interest for MOTM. Nevertheless very happy to see the next one!

Both green & black vinyl are available from the get go, but I'm not sure why.....
I mean, why wouldn't you get the green one?


So the green is "limited" but they don't say how many:

"Initial orders get an ultra-limited green vinyl edition while supplies last"

The Pre-orders begin today, July 19 and end August 17.

Since there are going to be at least 2 LPs,
I've created a new page for the Run Out Groove label

 

JULY 18:

Completed the Missing Links page for Friday Music
Just missing one color now.



Thanks to Ed Reilly & Ben Belmares for sharing their photos.

 

Polls close today for the next Run Out Groove contest.
MOTM should win.

 

JULY 17:

Added the yellow vinyl version for The Monkees:

 

JULY 16:

Update for RSD:

It seems the extra UPC sticker on the shrink wrap matches up to:

Volume 1: Red
Volume 2: Red
Volume 3: Blue

 

JULY 15:

Thanks to "SomeDeerBoi" at Discogs for explaining the release dates for the Taiwan LPs:

"So Taiwan had their own calendar system (at least back then)
called Minguo that, instead of regular years like 1980, they started at year 1.
Year 1 was in 1912, so to get regular years, you'd have to add 1911 to whatever
year it was on that Minguo calendar.

In the earlier days of Taiwan's record industry (mid-60's-late 70's),
Taiwan used that calendar on their records.

That's just years. The whole date follows as YY.MM.DD.
If there is not a 3rd number at the end, the date is simply YY.MM."

 

So I've updated the release dates for most of the Taiwan records
as a few don't list a date at all.

 

JULY 12:

Ed Reilly generously shared his photos of his black vinyl version for the 2 LP set

 

JULY 9:

The Monkees 2 LP Special Edition was released today. I ordered one yellow
and one black pressing; I hope everyone was able to get at least one copy.

 

If you haven't already vote for the next one: MOTM; polls close on July 18.


 

JULY 5:

Recently found this AFRTS LP for the Pisces album.

Years ago I had done a internet search for these records and came across this one
listed in a library but with no pictures. Nice to finally find a copy.

 

Thanks to Akira Suzuki on Facebook who put up pictures of his
Headquarters LP that has 25mm pressing rings. This is possibly from the
MCA pressing plant of Gloversville or Pinckneyville
which had these same diameter rings on their records.

These two plants had been previously owned by Decca (up until 1966).

Digging through my collection I found two of my records I had misidentified
as MGM pressings (32mm), but mine do not have any marks in the dead wax
so these are unconfirmed.

 

JULY 3:

Many people are reporting that the black vinyl version for The Monkees
by Run Out Groove records is already shipping.

 

JULY 1:

Oliver added to the 8-track section for Italy. Released in November 1970.

I've just started looking at foreign Colgems/RCA 8-track releases but it seems
Italy was the only other country that released the original Colgems
studio albums in the 8-track format.

 

JUNE 14:

Run Out Groove has included MOTM in this months vote.
I know we haven't even gotten the first one yet, but I think these sets will be worth it.

 

JUNE 12:

Thanks to Ed Reilly for the LP images of Dolenz Sings Nesmith

 

Found a white label pressing of the Collectables singles
Daydream Believer/Listen To The Band
