 RE's possibly mean a re-mixing of the track - or - a re-mastering of the stampers (possibly cut louder or maybe the original stampers had a distortion or a cutting defect)..it can mean a number of things...........John

 I just came across a white label promo pressing of this single (same A & B sides) and it has the A-side matrix number of A-534 RE 1. It looks like photo 556377 and has Promotional Copy at about the 2 o'clock position on the label. Does the RE indicate a different recording or just the pressing plant as explained earlier?

 Here is the original version of the A-side as performed by the Outsiders

 The affected sample - {Images #924232 & 924233} - was from RCA Victor's Indianapolis, IN plant. The others with the 'RE 1' within the matrix number are as follows:
- {Images #170101 & 170102} - Columbia Records' Pitman, NJ plant (which I have)
- {Images #556377, 556378, 1075505 & 1075507} - label typesetting by Bert-Co, Los Angeles
- {Image #290648} - label typesetting by Alco Research & Engineering Co., Los Angeles (probably points to a Monarch pressing - but then, so do the Bert-Co typesetting jobs)

 I noticed that some pressings don't have RE 1 as part of the matrix number. How different are those pressings?

 I like the single version of the A-side a little better than the LP version

 I think this is one of the best songs ever done.

 Anyone notice that this 45 is sped up from the original album version?
