The cover was based on a concert poster from Dave Schiller of Sparta Graphics.
This time, the LP replaced 5 of the songs, substituting in their third and fourth singles, plus
"Let's Dance On". Most of side 2 was removed, however "Sometime In The Morning"
would later show up on their Greatest Hits LP "I Monkees In TV".

It appears their third LP "Headquarters", was not released here
or was so unpopular that copies rarely come up for sale.
