24 Exclusive Dates Announced For U.S.; Presales Start May 1
We're getting closer and closer to the release date for THE MONKEES PRESENT (DELUXE), so here's another taster for you – Micky's fiery "Steam Engine (1969 Rough Stereo Mix)". It's just one of more than 80 tracks included on this 3 CD boxed set. Strictly limited to 5,000 copies with over half of those already sold, this box is sure to sell out quickly, so reserve yours now. THE MONKEES PRESENT (DELUXE EDITION) ships on August 13.
We're premiering another previously unheard track at The Monkees.com – a never-before-released alternate mix of "Little Red Rider."
We're setting the mood with the exclusive premiere of a never-before-released version of Davy Jones' tender ballad "French Song (Rough Mono Mix)."
By October 1969, things were radically different for The Monkees. Their NBC show had left prime time, Peter Tork had left the group, and Top 40 hits were no longer a sure thing. It was in this atmosphere that Micky Dolenz, Davy Jones and Michael Nesmith exerted more creative control to record THE MONKEES PRESENT. The resulting album is one of the group's most varied, from the iconic single, "Listen To The Band," to Micky's anti-war anthem, "Mommy And Daddy," Davy's lush "French Song," and Michael's Nashville-tinged barn-burner, "Good Clean Fun."
