I had seen this a few years ago, but missed winning the auction. NOW!, I finally have it. Very strange, as its a blue label, LONG PLAYING MONO, with Mono Order Number and Machine stamped ARL Matrix. Similar to a Stereo label Satanic Majesties, I have, but that one says LONG PLAYING, but is a stereo LP. This one is MONO. Anyone else have it?
Not sure what happened to the photo...I worked yesterday when I put it up. Maybe photo bucket is down...

Woow, first time I'v seen one.....
I have heard about some DECCA elpees that are mono recordings but have the blue stereo lable though. I think it was Beggars Banquet but not sure. This I heard many years back but I did not pay that much attention to the details back then....

It reallly looks that way, but, no IT REALLY EXISTS...And I have a red label mono with the exact label configuration and matrix...I really think a mistake, here, but I know of two other copies, so, a few got out.
PS I have over 80 items on ebay, if anyone is interested. RARE records, Tshirts, mags, and will try and do posters tomorrow. Thanks for any interest. Feel free to email me privately with offers.
The copy you missed is, now (!) in my collection and is exactly the same you describe. I date it as from the late-60s. It's to be said that some LONDON albums from the 70s sport stereo labels, but play mono. If I can remember well, I'd have a 'Flowers' like that, I'd check... Typed ARL matrix data onto off-groove are very common and you can have them, sometimes, in Canadian albums. A very nice record to have, in any case. Do you have the two 'Got LIVE If You Want it!' with additional silver line? Other nice findings are the very early boxed stereo with warning printed onto labels. I have a couple of titles and consider them extremely underrated. Bye everybody, Luca

Hi, Luca...I just got a second copy of the NOW! with rare blue label mono. Both "Pretty Beat Up" but still glad to have them. I think you may be right with a date of say 1967 for it. Also, yes, I do have the USA Got Live's with the extra silver "hologram" band on the labels, both mono and stereo. Unusual these. There are two variaions of the stereo, one with the title printed in the hologram, another without it. Keep on collecting!
As far as the late 70s USA stereo's that play mono, yes, the flowers is verified. has ARL matrices. Also, and even rarer, is a Satanic Majesties, that I recently found, also, late 70s, thin vinyl pressing that also plays in mono--old ARL matrix scratched out, with a new matrix etched in. Beauty was, I knew this existed, but couldnt find one....ANYWHERE....so I bought a sealed one off ebay--for $9 US Dollars...and viola! MONO record in stereo sleeve, with Mono matrix....Thin vinyl, but sounds better than the original 60s ones.
My Got LIVEs with additional silver line are one MONO and one STEREO. On both, you can clearly read the album title covered by this overprinted beam. Funny is that I've never found copies sporting the title: it seems that LONDON didn't want the title onto labels, at all. Congratulations on your Satanic: living far from the USA makes everything harder... Luca

.Attached is the infamous "silver line" "Got Live if You Want It " US mono and stereo pressings. LL3493 mono / PS 493 stereo 1966.
I say infamous because this one has been gradually building up as the next big "rarity"
The truth of the matter is with this pressing it is quite common. It could probably be labelled a "mispress " but technically it isn't. The silver lines are infact a warning marker for when the labels / or replace the ink etc on the printing and production run. This tells the operator to reload the required reloaded materials.
Thus production can continue without stopping plus the warning markings can stay on the label and not effect the finished result for retail sale . This info came from a Fanzine/booklet about London Labels printed in the late 90's. These silver lines appear on other London artists and company labels . Other Stones releases comfirmed include Satanic ,but possibly more. (A collector I know "claims" to have had a LIB with silver lines) I think we should only trust people with confirmed images and pics !! You just can't trust information from collectors with just simple here-say and memory.
Maybe the machine used was only short lived in production hence only the few labels we see with the silver lines within the same time period The stereo GLIYWI is quite common although the mono version and Satanic you do not see as much.
Don’t let” Dealer / collectors” say this is special export etc etc pressing and lay the big price on you .. I do think general collectors are awake to this one and seem dis-interested . 3 Stereo GLIYWI have been listed for sale on Ebay in the past few months . 2 sold for $25 and $13.50 while the third had no bids at $11 !!
Keep an eye out for them but don't pay too much . When you are not looking for them you do not notice them .They are quite common. Best Regards.
PS Luca ,That is my own pic featuring my own pressings !!
