An exciting newly discovered release came up on eBay recently and here it is -
the Radio Felicidad promo only version of the Daydream Believer single from Mexico

It's really amazing they created an entirely new picture sleeve for this one as none
of the RCA singles came with any sleeves at all.

Unlike the Mexican EPs paper picture sleeves this one is on cardboard.
The label is also unique and is probably just glued over a stock copy.

You can see where there were additional words around the center hole where the label
probably said "DISCO PROMOCIONAL" but were cut off when the record was pressed.

Here is the Daydream Believer EP picture sleeve that used one of the photos from the
standard USA release:



About 5 years ago this promo only sleeve for the Mexican EP (MKE-915)
popped up on eBay one day but I didn't win it, and I wasn't even sure it was legit
because there are several vendors that will print up fakes and sell them as 'fan club' pressings.

But this was a real sleeve; unfortunately no other copies have ever surfaced
however later I found out fellow collector Akira Suzuki won it
and graciously shared his photos of it.



Ed Reilly shares his photos of the recent Pisces LP in mono from Friday Music -

thanks Ed!




This hit me too hard. He did look frail on the tour, but wow, can't believe he is gone.

From Video Ranch:

With Infinite Love we announce that Michael Nesmith has passed away this morning in his home, surrounded by family, peacefully and of natural causes.
We ask that you respect our privacy at this time and we thank you for the love and light that all of you have shown him and us.

Also re-issued today on Friday Music, perhaps Nez's best Monkees LP:

More pictures coming soon.



More bad information circulating on FB: Today I'm seeing how the soundtrack to Head
was released on December 1, 1968. It wasn't released that day because that was a Sunday,
however the bigger question was whether it was released in November or December.

Sometime back I dove into the trade journals and found this article & ad which
confirmed a November release date, but it was rumored to have been delayed by the Mylar
used for the front jacket cover (a little too thick for the printing presses)

Micky mentioned it once and Andrew also has it in his book however I've never seen it
documented in any trade publications from that time period.

From Cash Box Magazine:

Record World magazine reviewed the album for its November 30 issue (street date Nov. 23)
and it wasn't just a cursory review, the reviewer commented that Circle Sky or Can You Dig It
would make good singles. If preview copies were available then at least some copies may
have been in the stores.
