Cover Front: RE front cover RCA and catalog number upper left corner and Victor Stereo upper right corner. Reflects logo change and has "RE" at lower left on front.
Cover Back: RE upper right corner for both Monaural and Stereo.

The RE is not documented anywhere. I have suspected to exist and this copy turned up after 9 years of looking in November 2021. This is an extremely rare transitional cover. What makes this so interesting is that RE was appended to both the Mono and Stereo catalog numbers to reflect the change for Ain't That Loving You Baby*. That song had been reprocessed for stereo. Since there was no reissue of Mono and since Mono wouldn't need that asterisks the cover is incorrect. It is also interesting that the *This selection has been electronically reprocessed for stereo from the original monaural recording. was simplified to the more common standard of *Stereo effect reprocessed from monophonic on the RE2 cover. This cover came with the non-flexible Rockaway pressing and the 21-112-1 40D (6/1968) insert sleeve.
