The Monkees Changes on Colored 180g LP
Mastered by Joe Reagoso!
As their ninth and last album from their hit making 1966-1970 era, The Monkees Changes
is one of their most desirable and collectable efforts fetching over $300 for a mint copy. This highly regarded fan favorite was a treasure trove of songs providing the soundtrack to the final year of their Saturday afternoon airings of their critically acclaimed The Monkees
television show, as well as featuring the double-sided hit single "Oh My My" and "I Love You Better."
As with all of their fine Colgems
recordings, the superstar vocals of Micky Dolenz and Davy Jones are showcased as their first class musicianship excels throughout this 1970 session. Together, the two Monkees
legends prove once again with the Changes
album that their music is timeless and will continue to stand the test of time. The late great Davy Jones revisits the hit sounds of the Boyce and Hart catalog with a tremendous vocal workout on their "I Never Thought It Peculiar" as well his rockin’ delivery of "99 Pounds."
His sorely missed vocals also radiate on the classic "Do You Feel It Too," making this one of the more interesting pop mid tempo ballads in the Monkees
catalog. Aside from the aforementioned double sided hits "Oh My My" and "I Love You Better," Micky Dolenz’s performances continue his superstar tradition with the solid balladry of the brilliant soft California rock sounds of "Ticket On A Ferry Ride" and "Tell Me Love."
Produced by the much acclaimed '60s producer/writer Jeff Barry
(The Monkees, Neil Diamond, The Archies), Changes
was the first full-fledged production by this Monkees
collaborator as it showed the true pop genius of both the band and producer in the studio. Augmented with some very cool '70s writers like Andy Kim ("Rock Me Gently") and the late Bobby Bloom ("Montego Bay"), this final Monkees
album of their first golden era truly was a grand farewell from this band until their unbelievable history making 1986 return.
is honored and proud to continue their extensive Monkees 180 Gram Vinyl Series
with the classic Changes
mastered by Joe Reagoso
(The Monkees, Davy Jones, The Byrds). To help celebrate the band's 2012 reunion, they have also included the original colorful album cover graphics in a first time gatefold presentation!
