Three-CD Collection The Monkees 50 Spotlights The Band's Biggest Hits, And Forever Features The Group's Essential Recordings On Single CD And LP; Both Will Be Available On August 26

Micky Dolenz And Peter Tork Continue The Monkees' 50th Anniversary Tour

The Monkees' golden anniversary celebration continues to gain momentum, fueled by the critical and commercial success of Good Times! -the band's first new studio release in 20 years - as well as the glowing reviews for the group's ongoing 50th Anniversary Tour. Fans will have two more reasons to cheer this summer when Rhino introduces a pair of career-spanning music collections on August 26.

The first is THE MONKEES 50, a three-CD set packed with 50 unforgettable songs from the band's historic career, including "She Makes Me Laugh" and "You Bring The Summer" from Good Times! The second collection is FOREVER, a 14-track compilation that spotlights the group's biggest hits, as well as "She Makes Me Laugh" from the new album. FOREVER will be available on CD and LP.

During the band's time together, The Monkees scored three #1 hits - "Last Train To Clarksville," "I'm A Believer" and "Daydream Believer"- which are featured on both collections, in addition to the Top 40 hits "(I'm Not Your) Steppin' Stone," "A Little Bit Me, A Little Bit You," "Words," and "Valleri." THE MONKEES 50 delves even deeper into the band's rich catalog to include classic fan favorites "She," "Mary, Mary," "Goin' Down," "Tapioca Tundra," and "Papa Gene's Blues."
