Original Daydream Believer Mix



This was the only tape of the Monkees issued in a longbox.

All the longboxes on one page.


Purchase date on price sticker: July 18, 1986

The three new songs were originally credited to "The Monkees".
This sticker was added on later pressings to clarify that only
Micky & Peter "Of The Monkees" played on these songs
i.e. Davy wanted his name taken off them.


At the end of the print run of these LPs and cassettes, Arista
replaced the original version of Daydream Believer
with the updated 1986 version (AS1-9532).

I have not found a stock copy of this cassette with this mix,
but the below RCA/BMG version does have the it.
