The Rolling Stone Album Guide. I can't recommend this seller more highly. Some of these songs are among my favorite Monkee tunes. One of my favorite albums yes I am old enough to remember vinyl albums! This is NO joke No, I'm not kidding. A reevaluation of the Monkees' collective talents is WAY overdue; when you realize that these guys came together as two actors and two semi-pro musicians who auditioned for a TV series because they were in desperate need of work AND THEN forced themselves to become a REAL band, it's pretty amazing just how damn good and often great they became.
The musical growth and diversity they display on this album is truly astounding --Mike Nesmith, the band's most talented member, shines on tracks like "The Door Into Summer", "Love Is Only Sleeping", and his yearning, soaring vocal on the magnificent country-like "What Am I Doin' Hanging Round?
Micky shines on what still might rank as the finest three-minute exploration of suburban disenchantment "Pleasant Valley Sunday" , as well as what may be the first usage of Moog synthesizer on a rock record "Daily Nightly". Even Davy - usually the weak link in the band - manages to charm and delivery solid performances on Harry Nilsson's "Cuddly Toy", "She Hangs Out" and the groupie tribute "Star Collector".
Only Peter fails to make an impression here, although his solid musicianship can be heard on several tracks. The remastered sound on this disc really jumps out at you, and highlights what is already a superb album.
See all reviews. Top reviews from other countries. The fourth album by the very underated Monkees gets another airing from Rhino. This deluxe edition is a bit thin when it comes to the bonus tracks having a mere 14 compared to the amount the other three releases in this series enjoy but the percentage of unissued material is higher: nine of them will make interesting listening for Monkee completists.
Monkee maniacs will be familiar with 'Riu Chiu' but the version here is the one that graced the TV show. The accompanying booklet is liberally spread with photographs and the commentary, by 'the fifth Monkee', Andrew Sandoval, gives a good insight into the tracks on this collection. If Rhino are to continue on this 'deluxe reissue' campaign, it makes one wonder what other 'goodies' they may have for inclusion on the remaining five albums.
Arrived very fast, I had this album when I was in my teens and enjoyed revisiting my youth, brought back memories of times and friends I haven't thought about in years while I was listening to it.
Experimenting with the sound produced by the Moog Synthesizer, quite revolutionary at the time. Report abuse. I had this on vinyl back in the day, now I have it again, plus the bonus tracks, excellent! I have always been a fan of the Monkees and most of the tracks not from their mainstreem pop period. I found this Album good and would recommend. Pages with related products. See and discover other items: bubblegum music. Back to top.
