Music Box. Add to Cart. Mastered from the original Colgems Records mono tapes by Joe Reagoso. The Monkees and More of The Monkees were two of the most successful albums ever released in classic rock history. The mono mixes are terrific here as you will hear nuances and slightly different mixes than their stereo counterparts.
Headquarters started the Summer Of Love in at No. Both Pisces Customer Reviews 5. Ironically, my gold lettering cover has the old RCA Victor logo which is different than the photo in your post with the red lettering. This came with the black and silver label on the vinyl while the red title copy I have has the RCA logo with the orange label on the vinyl record. I just noticed on the back of the "Golden Album" cover with the Gold lettering, there is a copyright date of So my guess is this version came out first.
The Red lettering version has no copyright date on the back. Location: Brookfield, Illinois. The trouble with the box sets is, their albums were so diverse that fans are going to have their favorites and no two will ever agree on what should be included and what should be left out. Listen To The Band is excellent overall, but it's frustrating to be listening to songs from Pisces and they skip for instance "She Hangs Out" -- I know they included the early Jeff Barry-produced version of that song but at least for me Headquarters and Pisces have some of the best stuff ever released under the Monkees name and listening to the material on the different box sets always frustrated me because I'd be thinking: what's the point of including a bunch of songs from the albums, leaving off others, and then throwing on a few "rarities" unavailable elsewhere, except to "make" fans buy the same stuff again.
I'm glad that in most cases, Rhino will at least try to include versions of the songs that are different in some way remixes, long versions, etc. Didn't occur to me until someone suggested it in an earlier post in this thread that they'd want to start that particular disc with a song that was a big hit.
Anyway, in a nutshell, that's what frustrates me about compilations -- I tend to skip them altogether unless there is at least something included that I don't already have -- and at this point, there isn't a whole lot left which says a lot about how generously Rhino has opened the vaults of rarities over the years.
The ones I did buy, I don't think there is a single one I can listen to all the way through and not say at some point, "I can't believe they didn't include name of song. That's a whole other subject altogether.
It just has that sort of flow to it, and even the back cover looks like a era Colgems back cover design -- albeit with era photos and sans references to the fan club and Saturday morning reruns. MarkTheShark , Sep 5, The format makes scanning more difficult. This thread prompted me to finally complete my own. The project was stalled because I had to scan it in pieces on my flatbed and re-composite it. I can actually still see a couple minor flaws that I'll have to fix sooner or later.
Posted over on albumartexchange. Is there someplace with a round down on what's unique to each compilation, if anything? Also, everyone talks about the remixes on Listen to the Band. Is it that obvious? I'm listening to it right now and it made me think of the posts here on this thread about it being remixed differently.
Of course, it was my reading this thread yesterday that put me in the mood to play Listen to the Band today. Pizza , Sep 5, Location: Harrogate, United Kingdom. For me it has to be 'Listen To The Band' - there is just so much there for everyone.
Best Wishes David. Location: joliet il. Location: Oakwood Village, Ohio. David R. Modny , Sep 5, BobT , Sep 5, I've been hooked on little variations like that ever since. I got it in the Fall of '91 with the poster. BenB , Sep 5, Location: Northern Germany. John22 , Sep 6, Location: Anywhere but here. Wade , Sep 6, There's a New Zealand copy right here. It looks like the Arista logo and the boxed EMI logo were designed to go on the sleeve.
From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia. Redirected from More of The Monkees. While Tommy Boyce and Bobby Hart are the writers of the song, several sources claim Jeff Barry, Angelo Badalamenti and Marianne Faithfull to have co-written the track  , which is incorrect.
Badalamenti and Faithfull did not begin collaborating until the mids,  when they wrote a completely different song called "She". Jeff Barry's work with the band on this and later albums is well-documented including writing the song "She Hangs Out"'. On the stereo mix, Micky's vocal is dubbed in at the end of the instrumental bridge just before the second verse; this vocal bridge does not appear on the mono mix.
During the fade, Micky's repeated, "Not your steppin' stone" begins sooner on the stereo mix than on the mono mix. The mono single fades out earlier than the track from the mono album, despite both mixes listed with a running time of This was intended to give Peter a bigger role in the album.
Produced by Jeff Barry "Mr. Previously unissued. A stereo mix with harmony vocals from Micky Dolenz was issued on Missing Links The second which Micky believed was "terribly out of sync" came in October and was the basis for the song's release. A different vocal by Micky was recorded earlier that summer.
