At the risk of seeming pedantic :roll:, the full catalog no. is MM2-663 for the mono -- according, at least, to my copy. And Motown headlined Diana Ross for the first time with this 2-LP package, which included 4-color prints of Diana, Mary and Flo, "suitable for framing".

My copy has the MM prefix on the cover, but has an MT prefix on the record label itself. I also have those color prints, they're neat.

This prefix difference also carries over to other LP's. For example, my promo copy of the Miracles SPECIAL OCCASION LP is TM-290DJ, while my stock copy is T-290.
