In honor of 50th anniversary this year, we've super-sized MORE OF THE MONKEES with a staggering 91 tracks including 55 previously-unreleased alternate takes, remixes, and newly discovered concert recordings from 1967, the band's earliest-known live tracks, as well as a bonus 7” of “I’m A Believer” (Remix)/”(I’m Not Your) Steppin’ Stone” (Vocals Only).</p> <p>"This is the most exciting archival dig through The Monkees' vault since 2009's THE BIRDS, THE BEES AND THE MONKEES DELUXE EDITION. Every track is newly mastered for this set; the live material is the most historically significant of their career," says Andrew Sandoval, who produced the set and wrote a new essay for its expansive booklet. </p> <p>MORE OF THE MONKEES: SUPER DELUXE EDITION significantly expands the special edition of MORE OF THE MONKEES released in 2006. Along with mono and stereo mixes of the original album, the SUPER DELUXE EDITION takes listeners into the studio for the making of the album through extensive studio outtakes. Many make their debut here, including the first recorded versions of: "Words," "Valleri," "Hold On Girl" and more. Backing tracks for early version of "Sometime In The Morning," "I'm A Believer" and "Look Out (Here Comes Tomorrow)" offer a behind-the-scenes perspective on the creative process.</p> <p>However, the set's most historic aspect is the inclusion of newly discovered unreleased live music. Recorded in Arizona in 1967, these 10 tracks are The Monkees' earliest-known live recordings. The performance highlights songs from the band's 1966 self-titled debut ("I Wanna Be Free" and "Papa Gene's Blues"), along with covers of Ray Charles' "I Got A Woman" and Willie Dixon's "You Can't Judge A Book By The Cover."</p> <p>Limited to just 4,500 numbered copies and housed in a hardbound 7"x7" box, the collection is available exclusively from monkees.com and rhino.com. MORE OF THE MONKEES: SUPER DELUXE EDITION will be available on December 22, but you can pre-order now.</p> <p><a href="http://monkeesstore.warnermusic.com/more-of-the-monkees-super-deluxe-edition.html" target="_blank">Get your copy of MORE OF THE MONKEES: SUPER DELUXE EDITION</a>.</p> <p>MORE OF THE MONKEES: SUPER DELUXE EDITION Track Listing</p> <p>Disc One<br /> The Original Mono Album<br /> 1. “She”<br /> 2. “When Love Comes Knockin’ (At Your Door)”<br /> 3. “Mary, Mary”<br /> 4. “Hold On Girl”<br /> 5. “Your Auntie Grizelda”<br /> 6. “(I’m Not Your) Steppin’ Stone”<br /> 7. “Look Out (Here Comes Tomorrow)”<br /> 8. “The Kind Of Girl I Could Love”<br /> 9. “The Day We Fall In Love”<br /> 10. “Sometime In The Morning”<br /> 11. “Laugh”<br /> 12. “I’m A Believer”<br /> The Original Stereo Album<br /> 13. “She”<br /> 14. “When Love Comes Knockin’ (At Your Door)”<br /> 15. “Mary, Mary”<br /> 16. “Hold On Girl”<br /> 17. “Your Auntie Grizelda”<br /> 18. “(I’m Not Your) Steppin’ Stone”<br /> 19. “Look Out (Here Comes Tomorrow)”<br /> 20. “The Kind Of Girl I Could Love”<br /> 21. “The Day We Fall In Love”<br /> 22. “Sometime In The Morning”<br /> 23. “Laugh”<br /> 24. “I’m A Believer”<br /> Bonus Material<br /> 25. “I’ll Be Back Up On My Feet” (First Recorded Version)<br /> 26. “Of You” (Mono Mix)<br /> 27. “I Don’t Think You Know Me” (Second Recorded Version – Mono Mix)<br /> 28. “Words” (First Recorded Version – Mono Mix) *<br /> 29. “Look Out (Here Comes Tomorrow)” (Mono TV Mix) *<br /> 30. “Tear Drop City” (1966 Mono Mix)<br /> 31. “Sometime In The Morning” (Alternate Mono Mix) *<br /> 32. “Valleri” (First Recorded Version – Mono TV Mix)</p> <p>Disc Two<br /> 1. “Whatever’s Right” (Backing Track) *<br /> 2. “Valleri” (First Recorded Version - Backing Track – Takes 1 &amp;

Has New Release Date Of May 27, Following The Launch Of An Extensive 50th Anniversary Tour With Micky Dolenz And Peter Tork On May 18</u></p> <p>The Monkees can now reveal the full track list for their highly anticipated new album GOOD TIMES!, their first new album in 20 years, tied to the group's 50th anniversary and extensive North American tour.</p> <p>All three surviving band members (Micky Dolenz, Michael Nesmith, and Peter Tork) have written new songs for the album as well as providing vocals and music performances. The unmistakable voice of the late Davy Jones is also included with a vintage vocal on the Neil Diamond-penned "Love To Love." To produce the new album, the band found the perfect musical co-conspirator in Grammy® and Emmy®-winning songwriter Adam Schlesinger (Fountains Of Wayne, Ivy). The release date of GOOD TIMES! has been moved up two weeks and will be now be available on May 27 on CD and digitally, with a vinyl version coming out on July 29.</p> <p>Much like The Monkees' early albums, GOOD TIMES! features tracks written specifically for the band by some of the music world's most gifted songwriters, including Rivers Cuomo of Weezer ("She Makes Me Laugh"), Ben Gibbard of Death Cab For Cutie ("Me &amp; Magdalena"), Andy Partridge of XTC ("You Bring The Summer"), as well as a song co-written by Noel Gallagher and Paul Weller ("Birth Of An Accidental Hipster").</p> <p>GOOD TIMES! finds all three band members taking turns on lead vocals, playing a wide range of instruments, and sharing new compositions, including Nesmith's "I Know What I Know" and Tork's "Little Girl." In addition to producing the album, Schlesinger also penned "Our Own World" and co-wrote the album's finale with Dolenz, aptly titled "I Was There (And I'm Told I Had A Good Time)."</p> <p>To help bring the 50th anniversary full circle, The Monkees completed songs for GOOD TIMES! that were originally written and recorded for the group during the 60s. Harry Nilsson wrote the title track "Good Times," which he recorded at a session with Nesmith in January 1968. The production was never completed, so the band returned to the original session tape (featuring Nilsson's guide vocal) and have created a duet with his close friend Dolenz. "Good Times" will mark the first time Dolenz and Nilsson have sung together since Dolenz' May 1973 single "Daybreak." GOOD TIMES! also includes the Neil Diamond-penned "Love To Love," the Carole King and Gerry Goffin collaboration "I Wasn't Born To Follow," "Whatever's Right," written by legendary songwriting duo Tommy Boyce and Bobby Hart, who were responsible for many of the classic Monkees hits, and "Gotta Give It Time," by Jeff Barry and Joey Levine.</p> <p>In addition to the new album, Dolenz and Tork will launch a Monkees 50th Anniversary Tour on May 18. The jaunt boasts nearly 50 North American dates through the end of the year including a homecoming gig at the Pantages Theater in Los Angeles on September 16. Tickets are available now.</p> <p>In other Monkees news, <a href="http://smarturl.it/MonkeesD2C" target="_blank">the band will release the entire series of "The Monkees" television show on Blu-ray for the very first time</a>. All 58 episodes have been painstakingly restored in high-definition from the original film negatives. The 10-disc Blu-ray collection also includes the 1968 cult-classic <em>Head</em> along with many never-before-seen outtakes from the film. Due to the overwhelming amount of bonus material included, the collection, limited to 10,000 individually numbered pieces, will now be available on June 24 and can be purchased exclusively at Monkees.com.</p> <p><strong>GOOD TIMES!</strong><br /> Track Listing (with songwriters noted)<br /> 1.

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."</p> <p>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 The Monkees boxed sets.
