Worldwide Monkee discography for picture sleeves and record 45s
and all CDs, LPs, and Tapes from the USA.
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.
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.
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.
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.
So here is what I know so far about the mono mix of Birds:
True dedicated mono mix:
"Fake mono" mix:
Only released in stereo:
Unknown or unconfirmed:
Finally found this one from Mexico, "Words/Pleasant Valley Sunday":
For some reason the singles are so very hard to find.
"Words" was the A-side and charted at #6 in October '67.
From Friday Records, "Head Alternate", also from Ben Belmares:

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:
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.
