Metromedia Records began issuing singles in February, 1969. Although their first few commercial singles were mono, they soon turned to stereo for commercial releases. Most of the promo copies were mono, however, so if a record never made it past the promo stage, it would not be available in stereo. For missing numbers after 106 below, mono promos exist in most cases, but we have not seen commercial copies. If commercial copies exist, they are probably stereo. The ones listed here are commercial copies verified to exist in stereo.

Metromedia stereo singles used the regular blue label, with the word "STEREO" at the right side.

Metromedia Notes:
1. Commercial singles had a blue label with black print and a white logo. Promo copies had a white label with black print and a red logo. Generally, Metromedia numbered their stereo singles with an "MMS-" prefix, as opposed to "MM-" for mono singles.
2. Promo copies of these stereo singles were usually mono with the "MM-" prefix. Starting in June, 1970, some promo copies were mono/stereo A-sides. On these, the prefix was still "MM-", although the stereo side was blue with black print (the commercial label) instead of the usual white promo label.
3. MM-101, MM-103 and MM-104 were released commercially in mono. MM-102 was probably mono, but we have not seen a commercial copy.
4. MM-116 was a purchased master previously released in mono on Whirl World SL 1001, so if commercial copies exist they are probably mono.
5. Copies of MMS-121 pressed at Shelley Products were mono. These can be identified by a star on the right side of the label instead of the word "STEREO," and also by the mono master numbers (ZTSP 144763 and ZTSP 144764) in the dead wax. Shelly Products also released a version of MMS-121 with "Love" as the flip side, also mono. Copies of MMS-121 pressed at Columbia were stereo and marked as such.
6. The "Mystics" on MMS-130 were a Minnesota group, not the more famous do-wop group on Laurie Records.
7. MM-171 was a mono purchased master originally on Banana Records B-4600.
8. MMS-177 was later pressed with "July Seventeen" as the B-side.
9. MM-183, Blizzard's "Lotti Lotti-Loop De Loop" exists on a mono/stereo promo copy.
10. Metromedia 193 and 195 were not issued.
