 Amazingly, considering "Tijuana Taxi's" iconic status and memorability, it only hit #38 pop, #9 AC on BB's chart - while "Zorba The Greek" somehow peaked at #11 pop, #2 AC.

 And it also sounds like, again, Southern Plastics (which pressed those copies with the label {Images #892172 & 892174}) used the same metal parts from Monarch.

 Actually, they're on 892172 and 892174.

It looks like you and Droid hashed this out in the past, I didn't notice that before.

 Sounds like those numbers would have been on the deadwax of copies with the label variant {Images #313767 & 313769}.

 Sounds like the metal parts came from Monarch - that was frequently the case with some pressings on A&M which were pressed by a plant other than Monarch.

 As I am not too knowledgeable about pressing plants (learning most from 45CAT) I will list what is etched in the deadwax. Tijuana Taxi says "A & M 1169" and "59675-X". Zorba says "A & M 1168"
and "59675". The 59675 is preceded by a triangle on both sides. And there is "ST" etched on both sides. Hope this helps.

 This new variant {Images #892172 & 892174} was from one of the Nashville pressing plants, whether Southern Plastics (now United Record Pressing) or Precision Record Pressing or whatever. Any word as to deadwax markings besides the matrix number?

 Added label variant.

 Added label variant from Columbia Records' Pitman, NJ pressing plant. (The other variant was pressed by Monarch Record Mfg., Los Angeles, CA, with label fonts from Alco Research & Engineering, Los Angeles.)
