CHUM record chart from February 20, 1967 showing
the Hot New Hit " A Little Bit Me":




From the Rhino press release:

A new compilation from The Monkees will be released on July 18.
"Summer of Love" includes 12 tracks that focus on the group’s
lesser-known psychedelic side.
The collection will be released on LP (Red/White Splatter Vinyl) ($21.98) and CD ($7.98).

LP Track Listing

Side One
1.    “Pleasant Valley Sunday”
2.    “She”
3.    “Porpoise Song” – Single Version
4.    “Words”
5.    “Star Collector”
6.    “Birth Of An Accidental Hipster”

Side Two
1.    “Take A Giant Step”
2.    “Love Is Only Sleeping”
3.    “Randy Scouse Git”
4.    “Tapioca Tundra”
5.    “Saturday’s Child”
6.    “For Pete’s Sake”

At a minimum, I would have replaced "Saturday's Child" and "She" with "Daily Nightly"
and "Auntie's Municipal Court". However John Hughes from Rhino said
in a Zilch Facebook discussion: "Jumping in quickly to say this was meant to
satisfy a few different masters - a marketing focus on 1967 specifically,
leaning towards the psychedelic side to make it somewhat unique from other comps,
but it had to have enough "familiar" songs for the casual fan. We did our best."



A nice full page ad for their first LP from the
December 1966 issue of Screen Stories magazine.


June 1:

My favorite part of the Monkees box sets is the single (go figure) so I was really
disappointed they left it off the last one; however very excited to see Rhino bring it back
for the upcoming "More Of The Monkees" Super Deluxe Edition:
