 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"?
