LATEST UPDATES:

 

MARCH 22:

A new one from Malaysia on the Golden Statue label;
another label I've never heard of...



This is the second pirated EP I've found from Malaysia
based off this French EP.

 

MARCH 20:

Added test pressings for most of the Rhino LPs & this rare
7" acetate for the Arista single that never was "Kicks".

Thanks again to Ed Reilly for all these!

 

MARCH 16:

Updated Mr. Tork's page with every release that I know of.
He only had one record & only a few CDs (of which I only had one)
so that page didn't have much on it.

Thanks to Ben Belmares and Peter Cooke for most of these pictures!

 

MARCH 14:

Added the test pressing labels from Ed Reilly for the Classic Album Collection:

According to the jackets and labels these were 
pressed November 25 & December 3-5, 2015.

Just like the stock copy, "The Girl I Left Behind Me" 
is missing from "Instant Replay".

 

 

MARCH 6:

Reader Tommy reports that Rhino has taken all their unsold stock
for the Classic Album Collection box set and replaced the Instant Replay disc
that was missing "The Girl I Left Behind Me" with the correct record.

Recent online sales indicate Rhino is blowing these unsold sets
out of their inventory at steep discounts from the stock price of $134.98.

The replacement disc is only for the colored vinyl USA version.
Look for an "RE1" in the deadwax.

For those completists out there who want the original record
that is missing that song, the hunt is on!

 

Recent finds include this Tear Drop City from Rhodesia;


and these albums from South Africa

The 'Birds' LP is in mono with the same mix as found in the USA
(as was confirmed back in 2016 by my friend Derek Miner).
Nice to finally get my hands on a copy.

The "Instant Replay" LP cover is unique for the individual pictures of the guys
which was also used as the Puerto Rico LP jacket, the 90's Rhino CD (and cassette)
and the original Colgems cassette. However South Africa reversed Michael's photo
which make this LP a one-of-a-kind!


The original USA Colgems jacket:

The white background made them stand out more
but the disembodied heads is kinda spooky.

 

MARCH 4:

Finally found a promo copy of "Christmas Party"

Looking forward to a vinyl copy later this year.

 

MARCH 1:

Updated the Collectables box set page; I never realized that there were two pressings.
The original version used only gold vinyl, had no UPC on the box and had no liner notes.

 

FEBRUARY 27:

A promo sticker on the UK edition of the "Original Album Series".

I was unaware that this started out as a series for the
European market and only later was issued in the USA.

 

FEBRUARY 23:

Promo copy of Davy's "Girl/Take My Love"

I've been looking for a copy for 10 years;
for some reason this promo has always eluded me.

 

FEBRUARY 21:

RIP Peter! Man I feel gutted.

I saw him back in '13 with Andrew Sandoval:

 

 

FEBRUARY 16:

Gold Foil Promo Stamps for the Rhino reissues from the '80s:

Both the '85 & '86 pressings

Capitol Records didn't start distributing their records until 1986,
so the '85 pressing must have been unsold stock. Very unusual!

 

More promos

 

FEBRUARY 9:

Davy's "Rainy Jane" from Greece and Sweden:

 

 

FEBRUARY 1:

An uncut jukebox sheet for their last commercial single,
"Every Step Of The Way"

 

 

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.
