...and the LP version:

 

JULY 18:

It finally arrives, the "Summer Of Love" comp from Rhino,
for starters here is the CD version:

 

 

JULY 9:

Found the German promo for "Listen To The Band/Someday Man":

The foreign promos from 1969-70 are so hard to find;
with how easy it is to find records from say, Germany and Japan,
I'm surprised that it is so hard to find these:

Germany:

66-5000 Tear Drop City
66-16025 Hey, Hey With The Monkees

Japan:

SS-1953 Oh My My

I've never even seen pictures of these records anywhere on the 'net.

 

JULY 7:

Completly revamped the USA "Flashback" section. I noticed I had a bunch of these
in my collection but didn't look at them too hard as they are not as exciting as perhaps
the foreign releases. Anyway, after research I realized that some were
pressed on vinyl & some on styrene and I was able to distinguish that at least some of the
styrene were from the Monarch pressing plant. I've also included better
descriptions of the labels for the transition from Bell to Arista.

 

JUNE 12:

CHUM record chart from February 20, 1967 showing
the Hot New Hit " A Little Bit Me":

 

 

JUNE 3:

From the Rhino press release:

A new compilation from The Monkees will be released on July 18.
"Summer of Love" includes 12 tracks that focus on the group’s
lesser-known psychedelic side.
The collection will be released on LP (Red/White Splatter Vinyl) ($21.98) and CD ($7.98).


LP Track Listing

Side One
1.    “Pleasant Valley Sunday”
2.    “She”
3.    “Porpoise Song” – Single Version
4.    “Words”
5.    “Star Collector”
6.    “Birth Of An Accidental Hipster”

Side Two
1.    “Take A Giant Step”
2.    “Love Is Only Sleeping”
3.    “Randy Scouse Git”
4.    “Tapioca Tundra”
5.    “Saturday’s Child”
6.    “For Pete’s Sake”

At a minimum, I would have replaced "Saturday's Child" and "She" with "Daily Nightly"
and "Auntie's Municipal Court". However John Hughes from Rhino said
in a Zilch Facebook discussion: "Jumping in quickly to say this was meant to
satisfy a few different masters - a marketing focus on 1967 specifically,
leaning towards the psychedelic side to make it somewhat unique from other comps,
but it had to have enough "familiar" songs for the casual fan. We did our best."

 

JUNE 2:

A nice full page ad for their first LP from the
December 1966 issue of Screen Stories magazine.

 

June 1:

My favorite part of the Monkees box sets is the single (go figure) so I was really
disappointed they left it off the last one; however very excited to see Rhino bring it back
for the upcoming "More Of The Monkees" Super Deluxe Edition:

From the Monkees Live Almanac.

 

 

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.
