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)."

The evocative number is just one of 60 previously unreleased tracks featured on the 3-CD, 85-song boxed set THE MONKEES PRESENT (DELUXE EDITION). Newly re-mastered and expanded, THE MONKEES PRESENT (DELUXE EDITION) is packed with previously unheard songs, alternate versions and backing tracks from the original master tapes. Limited to 5,000 individually numbered boxes, it also includes an exclusive bonus 7" vinyl single for "Good Clean Fun (Alternate Mix)" b/w "Mommy and Daddy (Mono Mix)" in a picture sleeve.

THE MONKEES PRESENT ships in late July, but is available now for pre-order exclusively at Monkees.com. This box is not available from any store or other online retailer and is sure to sell out, so reserve your copy now.

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."

Strictly limited to 5,000 individually numbered boxes, the newly re-mastered and expanded THE MONKEES PRESENT is the latest release in Rhino Handmade's lavish Monkees boxed sets. Packed with a whopping 85 tracks (60 previously unreleased!) over 3 CD's, Monkees historian and reissue producer Andrew Sandoval has raided the vault, pulling previously unheard songs, alternate versions and backing tracks from the original master tapes. THE MONKEES PRESENT also includes an exclusive bonus 7" vinyl single for "Good Clean Fun (Alternate Mix)" b/w "Mommy and Daddy (Mono Mix)" in a picture sleeve.

THE MONKEES PRESENT ships in late July, but is available now for pre-order exclusively here at Monkees.com. This box is not available from any store or other online retailer and is sure to sell out, so reserve your copy now.
