**SSB Dates Cancelled / On TV**
Both of Shoe Suede Blues’ performances (7/18 & 7/19) at the 6th
Street Grill in Ft. Worth, TX have been cancelled. The reasoning for
the cancellations is not known at this time. Micky’s appearance
as “Gordon” on the “Band On The Run” episode of “Boy Meets World”
will air on the Disney Channel on April 20 at 4:30pm EST. Also, the
teen idols special, “Bubblegum Babylon,” will air on VH1 on April 14
at 1am & April 22 at 8pm EST.

**Extended Live Summer Tour DVD**
For the past few months, Monkee fans have rallied together to show
their interest in a limited edition extended “Live Summer Tour” DVD
which would feature the whole uncut concert performed on August 31,
2001. The DVD that is available now only includes 18 of over 30
songs & comedy spots that were a part of this historic concert.
Recently, I got an update straight from a King Biscuit Entertainment
representative on the status of the DVD. I was told that it
is “definitely a possibility” that they will release it, but also to
keep in mind that it is “considered a future project.” “So while it
is a possibility, there is no scheduled production and probably will
not be (if it happens) for at least a few months,” they stated. So,
if you want this DVD, which would include all the parts missed in
the original DVD, such as “Your Auntie Grizelda,” “Long Title: Do I
Have To Do This All Over Again,” “No Time,” “Since I Fell For
You,” “Lucille,” “It’s Nice To Be With You,” “The Porpoise
Song/Listen To The Band,” “I Wanna Be Free/I’ll Love You Forever,”
Peter’s Bach piece, the opening overture, all comedy skits &
dialogue, and more… visit
requests on their homepage as well as email messages!

Hi. I’ve never sent to this alert-list before, but I wanted to let
you know that “The Brady Bunch Movie” (with Davy, Micky, & Peter) is
due on DVD June 10th (widescreen, but no special features) & that
the complete series of “The Ben Stiller Show” (featuring “The
Monkees” parody “The Grungies” & a cameo by Micky) is due on DVD
June 3rd.

Also, the Disney documentary “Hey Hey We’re The Monkees” is
available on DVD via the Sam Goody website & on Ebay. It is an
import from Holland, playable on U.S. players, but, sadly, has no
special features (none of the bonus footage available on Rhino’s
video edition) – not even a menu screen! Chapters are randomly
assigned & the colors seem faded compared to versions we’ve
previously seen. It’s relatively cheap (under $20), but I’d
recommend holding out for a Rhino DVD reissue.

The Monkees 36 All Time Favorites 3 Pak from Timeless Music that was
mentioned in the latest Alert was released in 2002. I’ve had it
listed in the Monkees Music FAQ discography for quite some time and
I’ve been seeing it for sale at Sams Clubs and online through both
Timeless Music’s website and Timeless Music’s Ebay auctions for
several months.

It has been out long enough that if a particular Sams Club or Costco
location doesn’t have it in stock, it’s a safe bet that the title
has sold out at that location. In that case, ask a manager whether
they’ve ordered replacement copies, try another Sam’s or Costco
location or buy it direct from Timeless Music, online.
