LP Review


Barrel Full Of Monkees, while being a Colgems release, was really part of a budget
RCA 2-LP series called the "This Is...". Artists such as Chet Atkins, Sam Cooke,
and Ed Ames had discs in the series and the RCA LP's carried a VPS prefix and listed
for $5.98 which was the list price for "full line" single LP's at the time. The Monkees'
double set also listed for $5.98 and carried a then new "SCOS" prefix and new numbering
series "1001" making it unrelated to any other previous Colgems issue or pricing series.
