Of the reissued MONAURAL labels, this is the most difficult to find. I have seen only seven since 2008. This is one of the most undervalued records. I believe this is rarer than the LPM-3921 Elvis' Gold Records - Volume 4 and as rare as LPM-3989 Speedway.

Also released in stereo as LSP-2756 Fun In Acapulco.
