The Monkees In Mono 5 LP box set

Their first five No. 1 LPs in monophonic sound on 180-gram vinyl!

Includes The Monkees, More Of The Monkees, Headquarters, Pisces, Aquarius, Capricorn & Jones Ltd., and The Birds, The Bees & The Monkees, all in mono, each packaged individual covers with the original artwork restored.

Mastered from the original Colgems Records mono tapes by Joe Reagoso.

More than 60 tracks, including such smash hits as "Last Train To Clarksville," "I'm A Believer" "Pleasant Valley Sunday," "Daydream Believer" and "I'm Not Your Stepping Stone."

In September 1966, Micky Dolenz, Davy Jones, Michael Nesmith and Peter Tork debuted as The Monkees on NBC’s new Fall season line-up. Overnight success would happen in the form of a smash TV show, a No. 1 debut album The Monkees and a No. 1 hit single "Last Train To Clarksville." The Monkees were now the face of young people everywhere and they were there to stay.

The Monkees (1966) and More of The Monkees (1967) 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 (1967) started the Summer Of Love in 1967 at No. 1 before being knocked off by The Beatles' Sgt Pepper

Later that year The Monkees returned the favor by replacing the Beatles in the top spot with Pisces, Aquarius, Capricorn & Jones Ltd. (1967). Both Pisces... and The Birds, The Bees & The Monkees (1968) are two of the rarest mono albums from the band, as stereo was the format of choice by 1968 and mono albums were soon discontinued.
