Sundazed albums

From Sundazed.com 1998 website:

"Sundazed introduces limited edition, colored vinyl LP's of the first five Monkees albums! The complete original records on snazzy Lifesaver-colored wax, with: bonus tracks that have never before appeared on vinyl, massive liner notes/sessionography by Monkees know-it-all Andrew Sandoval, full color poster inserts in every album, and more!"


These were just vinyl versions of the 1994-95 Rhino CDs with some of the bonus tracks.
However the LP liner notes were updated with new information.

In 2001 Sundazed re-issued these same records with the inserts on 180 gram black vinyl.


Andrew Sandoval back in 2005 on the Hoffman Music Forums:

"They only did the first five albums and those are taken directly from Rhino CD's. I know there is some talk they used the PAC+J analog master, but BMG would not return it in time and it is my understanding it was not used."

Confusingly, both the colored & 180G vinyl releases use the same
catalog number & copyright date, with only the hype sticker
telling the consumer which version they are buying.
