 As Columbia Records' Pitman, NJ plant at that time was largely using Varityper fonts (as on {Images #236621, 236622, 931206 & 931207}), one would have to look at the deadwax for clues, I guess.

 Hmmm...one version of "Good Night Baby" notes the arranger as Ellie Greenwich, and the conductor as Artie Butler, while another reverses these credits. Wonder which one was the original, and which the correction?

 Sorry to have started a firestorm here! I know quite well that the lower matrix number often does not designate an A-side, but the "X" on a Delta *seemed* to usually appear on the B-side. I will try my best to avoid any future speculation over A/B-side matters...

 Think about it for a second. Monarch could probably care less which side was A and which side was B. They likely had two concerns: getting paid and keeping track of masters for re-pressings or errors. The record company would care about A/B, but I doubt if pressing plants cared much.

This is consistent with Monarch numbering: where the matrix numbers are sequential, the '-X' is assigned to the higher number.

 (I've said it a 1000 times!) Never judge an American A-side by a lower master number!....never, ever!.........John

 In wouldn't judge the A or B sides from monarch delta numbers or matrix numbers. Billboard reviewed Good Night Baby.

 My copy has Deltas (identical to 374199/374201). It appears to also feature "BellSound" stamp.
A--(Good Night)-- Δ53781-X
B--(The Swim)-- Δ53781

While this appears to be a rare example of the "X" appearing on the A-side, B-side also has the lower matrix. Was "The Swim" intended as the "hit"?
