Mercury LP MG20849/SR60849 - "Sings of Mixed-Up Hearts"

As with the first LP, this one was issued using the same piece of paper for the front cover of both Mono & Stereo releases. It was, again, mounted lower if the jacket was to contain a Stereo record, making the top band visible, or higher, if it was to hold a Mono LP, which made the bottom band visible.

To the right is an image of what the original Stereo front cover looked like. Note the black band across the top of the cover with the Stereo number.

The Mono front cover was the exact cover but mounted higher which allowed the Stereo information to wrap around the top while exposing the Mono information at the bottom.

The block below shows a comparison of the two different versions.

Front Cover

To the right is an alternate front cover variation. The only difference is the color. The surrounding color is a deeper blue and the reddish tint from the first now has a gold appearance.

This cover is on the Mono RedLP2 version of the label.

No other differences were noted in anything other than color.

The Mono & Stereo versions of the back cover of this LP were identical.

To the right is an image of what the original back cover looked like on both the Mono & Stereo pressings.
