The Monkees Greatest Hits on Limited Edition 180g LP
Mastered by Joe Reagoso
Friday Music / The Monkees 180 Gram Vinyl Series
The legendary pop/rock superstars The Monkees (Davy Jones, Micky Dolenz, Mike Nesmith and Peter Tork) set the music world on fire back in the '60s. With a very successful television show, massive concert tours, and of course an amazing string of number one albums and hit singles, The Monkees to this day are still revered and loved by their continual growing legion of fans worldwide.
In 1969, Colgems Records honored these hugely popular rockers with their first hits album simply titled The Monkees Greatest Hits. Filled with a treasure trove of number one singles and hit album tracks from their first five smash albums, this incredible LP also provided the soundtrack to their successful syndicated television run of The Monkees on Saturday mornings.
No stone is left unturned, as this 14-track masterpiece is loaded with hit singles like "Daydream Believer," "Last Train To Clarksville," "I’m A Believer," "Pleasant Valley Sunday," "Valleri, (I’m Not Your) Steppin’ Stone," plus the appearance of a rare stereo mix of "A Little Bit Me, A Little Bit You" that was only available on this original vinyl album.
As one of the most rare albums in their Colgems Records catalog, The Monkees Greatest Hits was only in print for a very short time, making it an instant collector’s item, which hasn’t seen the light of day for over four decades, that is until now!
Mastered by Joe Reagoso, this amazing pop classic is augmented by long time unearthed vinyl mixes of their classic hit singles and solid album tracks like "She," "Shades Of Gray" and "I Wanna Be Free" which truly resonate as you remember them from years ago. To enhance the limited edition release, Friday has also included a poly bag to house the rare black and orange colored pop artwork album cover as well as a poly lined sleeve to protect the vinyl LP.
