LATEST UPDATES:


MAY 27:

Finally located a copy of this Italian promo (rear) sleeve
for "I'm A Believer"

 

And some press releases:

"More Of The Monkees" from the USA

 

and from Germany "Last Train To Clarksville"

 

MAY 24:

Micky Dolenz's "Live In Japan" CD

Thanks to Ben Belmares for these photos!

 

MAY 21:

Found three more reissued Rhino cassettes from the 90s
that used the cassetes from the 80s but with an updated UPC sticker
& catalog number.

The 'Pisces' is of particular interest since they never produced any
with the updated arwork, but were listed in the Rhino catalogs
at that time as available to order.

 

A test copy of the "Pool It" cassette:


The original running order was different

 

A cassette test copy of the Rhino comp CD "Missing Links Vol. 2"

 

Rhino promo samplers also for "Missing Links Vol. 2"
& the "Listen To The Band" box set.


 

MAY 17:

More pictures from Rikizo Komori:

A promo copy of the Gold Disc "Theme/Daydream Believer"

This was one of three Japanese singles that I had not seen a promo copy for
(the others being RCA's "Oh My My" and Arista's Gold Disc "Last Train To Clarksville").

Curiously the label is the exact same as the stock copy except for the
Kanji characters "Not For Sale" in a box.

 

Promo copy of Davy's pre-Monkees record on the PYE label.

 

Nesmith's "Blue Angels" promo single on the TAM label.

 

 

MAY 16:

Reader Rikizo Komori sent me some incredible pictures of
previously unknown variations for the Japanese RCA & Bell records:

An end-of-the-print-run records:

RCA Daydream Believer sleeve with the ¥400 price printed directly on it

This original was at ¥370 then later a ¥400 sticker was added

 

later pressings of RCA EPs with the price change to ¥600

 

The corrected spelling of "Monkees" on the "Mommy & Daddy" label.
The promo & stock were misspelled and I never knew RCA corrected this!




An RCA promo flyer issued in early 1967 -

 

The 'No Gloss' versions of these Gold Disc Bell releases:

 

 

MAY 9:

Acquired some test copies of promotional singles

 

Found one more reissued Rhino cassette from the 90s
that used the cassete from the 80s but with an updated UPC sticker
& catalog number.

 

New flexis from Poland

I've never before seen a complete Monkees
single (A & B sides) on one Flexi before.
Thanks to Andrew Sandoval for these!

 

Found a copy of "Live 1967" on cassette
with a hole-punch in the spine; could this be a promo?

 

APRIL 30:

Reorganized Davy's USA Bell singles now arranged by pressing plants.

Also added a couple promos from the Monarch pressing plants-

The first one is a nice copy of Davy's last Bell single "I'll Believe In You"

 

And this one is a double sided stereo promo for "Rainy Jane"

Most of the promos and all of stock copies were released in mono.
That makes this stereo only record really unique; it must have been geared
toward getting some airplay on the FM stations.

 

APRIL 29:

Just got in some Rhino catalogs from 1986 & 87

These helped me confirm release dates for the reissues from the 80s,
"Live 1967" & the first "Missing Links" releases.
All these pages have been updated.


Also created a page for the unreleased Rhino LP "The Rest Of..."
which was to be released in September 1986 with the reissue of "Changes".

 

Cool new find for Micky: a press packet from Romar records:

 

APRIL 22:

An update (sorta) from Andrew Sandoval regarding the Monkees Blu-Ray TV set:

Background:

This Initially (as of March 15, 2019) appeared to be sold out.

However on December 11, 2019 Rhino sent an email out saying these were back in stock
and available for sale. But the website did not allow you to add the item to your cart,
so you couldn't purchase it. I wrote Rhino about this and they never wrote me back.

Later Andrew confirmed that these were in fact NOT sold out.
Rhino only sold through the assembled box sets and it was more of a money/labor issue
why the others were not put together and offered for sale.


Now today, Andrew had this to say on one of his eBay listings:

"Only a few thousand of these sets were released to the public via Rhino mail order
and on tour. People always ask me when they will be available again
and I will tell you the absolute truth: I do not know and I am kinda doubting
with the world in lockdown it will happen at all. I have asked Rhino and they say they
can no longer find the unassembled parts for these."

 

APRIL 13:

Updated the Monkees Re-Focus page to reflect releases per pressing plants:

Bestway Products (commonly found)

 

Monarch Records: (commonly found but the promo is rare)

 

Also updated & reorganized the 7A Records pages for Davy & Micky so they are
easily located and each release is on a separate page.

 

APRIL 10:

Updated the "The Mike & Micky Show" page with full pictures from the CD

Something I just noticed was that the logo found on the bass drum
is the same one as found on their "Good Clean Fun" picture sleeve.


 

APRIL 7:

Updated Davy's Bell LP page with record labels now divided by pressing plants:

Bestway Products: (promo copies have the all red text on the label)
Found on the label with the catalog number suffix "6067-SA-BW"

 

Monarch Records: (promo copies have red & black text on the label)
Look for a "MR" in the dead wax.

 

Allentown Records
Look for an "AL" in the dead wax.

Thanks to Ed Reilly for sharing his photos of the
Allentown labels & his promo copy of the Monarch Records pressing.

 

 

APRIL 5:

An unusual find from the UK: a solid-center version of "Daddy's Song/Porpoise Song"

Nez has a solid center for "Nevada Fighter", but this is my first for the Monkees.
I have no idea whether these were accidents or not.

 

 

APRIL 4:

Just found this "Someday Man/Listen To The Band" on an orange label from Australia;
this was previously only known to exist on the old RCA black labels:

 

This was also done for "Mommy & Daddy/Good Clean Fun"
But these are easier to find in both colors.
