Sundazed albums

In 1996 Sundazed was the first to offer the Monkees first 5 stereo records in 180 gram vinyl.
180 gram is considered audiophile grade and is thicker and heavier
which helps prevent warping over time. Most people hear a difference especially when,
as Sundazed has done, "virgin" vinyl is used, which does not have any recycled plastic
which can contain impurities leading to a noisier record.

Later they reissued the same 5 records with some liner notes and on colored vinyl,
however these were not 180 gram.

Both releases use the same catalog number & jacket, so if there is no sticker on the LP,
you would have to open it to know what's inside.

All the LPs were released in 1996.
