Original Mono Promo
An oddity for sure. This copy, stamped as Demonstration Copy on the rear cover with Mono Promotion Copy labels, was never released for sale as mono. All retails were Stereo. This pressing has never sold on Discogs.
Record has some sleeve scuffing that doesn’t affect play. Couple clicks on one side but nothing major. At some point the cover had some splits but they’ve been mended very well by someone with tape. Nice copy. Allmusic says, “This is one of the finest soul records of 1969, period…. Stands head and shoulders with virtually everything else now regarded as classic about that period’s soul music.”
