In September 1966, Micky Dolenz, Davy Jones, Michael Nesmith and Peter Tork debuted as The Monkees on NBC’s new Fall season lineup of shows. Overnight success would happen in the form of a smash TV show, a #1 debut album The Monkees and a #1 hit single Last Train To Clarksville. The Monkees were now the face of young people everywhere and they were here to stay.
Friday Music is no stranger to the amazing recording career of The Monkees. As a tribute to the band, the music and the memories, we are very honored to announce the colossal audiophile vinyl box set The Monkees In Mono. Mastered for the first time for audiophile vinyl from the original Colgems Records monophonic tapes by Joe Reagoso (The Monkees), this super limited edition deluxe box set features their first five mono albums: The Monkees, More Of The Monkees, Headquarters, Pisces, Aquarius, Capricorn & Jones Ltd., and The Birds, The Bees & The Monkees, all in their restored individual stunning LP covers, housed in a beautiful full color sturdy box.
All your favorite hits are included like Last Train To Clarksville, I’m A Believer, Daydream Believer, Pleasant Valley Sunday, Valleri, I Wanna Be Free, (I’m Not Your) Stepping Stone, Randy Scouse Git and 53 more, 61 tracks total.
The Monkees & More of The Monkees were two of the most successful albums ever released in classic rock history. The mono mixes are terrific here as you will hear nuances and slightly different mixes than their stereo counterparts.
Headquarters will always be one of those “must haves in mono” and now you have it…. This album started the Summer Of Love in 1967 and was the last album before Sgt Pepper by the Beatles to be on the top of the charts, later The Monkees replaced the Beatles again in the top spot with Pieces, Aquarius….
Both Pisces, Aquarius, Capricorn & Jones Ltd. & The Birds, The Bees & The Monkees are two of the rarest mono albums from the band, as stereo was the format of choice by 1968 and mono albums were soon discontinued. We have now gone back to the Colgems mono tapes and have put these back in circulation on vinyl for the first time in 46 years!
A great way to celebrate the holidays this year for your favorite Monkees fans, The Monkees In Mono is in strictly limited edition and will become one of the most important overviews of this band ever released.
Exclusively from your friends at Friday Music!
