LATEST UPDATES:

 

MAY 14:

The 'Pisces' LP from Uruguay

Finally found a decent copy of this LP with it's unique jacket
featuring some pictures from the TV show. Uruguay is a small country
and RCA probably only pressed a few hundred of these; the original cover
makes it highly collectable.

 

MAY 8:

"Infinite Tuesday" on vinyl:

Thanks to Ben Belmares for the pictures!

 

MAY 4:

Found this one last weekend...sheet music from the USA published in August '67. I've never seen it before
and it's not in Marty's book, so assume this is quite rare.

 

APRIL 30:

Eagle eye Ben Belmares picked up a copy of "Monkee Flips" and noticed it had "1984"
on the edge of the label with the Rhino address. When this was reissued in 1986
that was removed, but they etched "RE-1" in the dead wax.

When trying to distinguish between the two pressings, the "1984" is much easier to spot,
rather than looking for the RE-1 or asking an ebay seller to look for it.

 

APRIL 23:

Thanks to Ed Reilly for providing the missing pictures from the Arista's Flashback series,
which was released in 1991 and promptly sank without a trace.
These almost never show up on ebay.

 

APRIL 22:

Here is the CD version of Infinite Tuesday courtesy of Ben Belmares:

At some point I'll get the vinyl up as well.
Still on the fence about buying it.

 

Thanks to the Monkees Almanac I've added a couple great
1969 RCA catalog pics to this site from Lisa Manekofsky.

 


Cassettes

 


8-Tracks

 

APRIL 14:

Completely revised the Colgems cassette section with
all new photos from Ed Reilly's collection:

Of all the recorded media formats issued for the Monkees,
these are the hardest to find.

Thanks Ed!

 

APRIL 13:

Reader Michael J. Thomas has recently acquired this mono copy
of Birds from the Philippines and he confirms that it does have
the same unique mix as found in the USA pressing.

In addition, the Philippines used the exact same jacket as the USA,
which makes this the next best thing to having the original.

In The Beginning...

When I started collecting Monkee 45s and EPs back in 2006 I spent quite alot of time searching the net to see what was out there. Typically, fan sites will show what records they've found locally, plus a few odds and ends. There was a handful of good sites like this (see links) but thats it.  

Then there are online forums where old collectors will occasionally post photos of what they have found. Hoffman music forums is the best I've seen of this.

The bane of collecting is that once you buy it, it just sits in a closet and you never look at it again. So I made this site so I can look at my collection and share it and the knowledge of what is out there worldwide.


Credit where Credit is due:

Hey most of these photos are mine, but some are from:

StewMac
Ben Belmares
Ed Reilly
Andrew Sandoval
Lisa Manekofsky
Akira Suzuki
Kevin Schmid
Takao Murakoshi
Peter Cooke

and many others I've met along the way. If I know it's yours, I'll give you credit.

I'm not profiting from this site (free of ads), so if you have any photos of items I'm missing, please share them with me and I'll give you credit.
