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

The Monkees would soon break even more ground and overtake The Beatles on the charts for their first several albums as well as blanket radio with massive airplay on all of their music, which became the soundtrack to the lives of millions of rock and roll kids worldwide.

Friday Music presents Pisces, Aquarius, Capricorn & Jones Ltd. exclusively on limited edition turquoise aqua monophonic vinyl! The No. 1 smash album also saw the first use of a Moog Synthesizer as Micky Dolenz was one of the first rock musicians to purchase one and its used throughout the album on tunes like the prog-rocker "Daily Nightly" and the Davy Jones' psych classic "Star Collector."

Pisces, Aquarius, Capricorn & Jones Ltd was one 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 its stereo counterpart.

This album will be forever known to have set many chart achievements as its was one of four huge Monkees albums to have placed No. 1 in 1967, it was also the only album that replaced The Beatles' Sgt. Pepper's Lonely Hearts Club Band in the No. 1 spot in the fall of 1967, and remained there into 1968.

Pisces, Aquarius, Capricorn & Jones Ltd. is also one of the rarest mono albums from the band, as stereo was the format of choice by the recording labels in 1968 and mono albums were soon discontinued. Friday Music has gone back to the Colgems monophonic tapes and is pleased to bring this incredible sounding recording to further enhance your Monkees experience.
