    At this writing, dating guides for Monarch-pressed singles have been online for several years. Maybe it's time to post a guide to Monarch ALBUM Delta numbers.

    If we just poke through our own Monarchs, we can probably come up with a good start to a list.

    Rusty Warren, Sin-Sational; Jubilee JGM-2034 = △ 3269
    Rusty Warren, Bounces Back; Jubilee JGM-2039 = △ 3873

    Also, we know that Atlantic signed on to have Monarch press their west-coast albums in November, 1964. What is the lowest Monarch Delta number on an Atlantic/Atco LP? (Based on the Billboard article from 11/21, this may appear on Atco 33-170.)

    Circa 1979 UK pressing with A1 B1 matrixes, but appears to have been made from US Monarch metal parts. Additional deadwax with US catalog # looks like Bernie Grundman's handwriting--there's also a "MR" in a circle stamp that's crossed out

    Those question marks in my last post are supposed to be delta symbols. For some reason, I am unable to edit them back to the proper symbol.

    Notice how a few delta numbers I posted are out of order with the chronological release date (LZ I △18257, CSN △20047, What's Going On △20835). I think those particular ones must designate reissues.

    Okay...I'm popping this whole thing into Excel and am adding release dates (or 1st appearance in Billboard dates).
