One of the most recognizable names in the annals of pop music history, The Monkees are an American rock and pop band, originally active between 1966 and 1971, with reunion albums and tours in the decades that followed. The original lineup was Micky Dolenz, Michael Nesmith, Peter Tork and Davy Jones.

The group was conceived in 1965 by TV producers Bob Rafelson and Bert Schneider specifically for the sit-com series The Monkees, which aired from 1966 to 1968. The music was originally supervised by record producer Don Kirschner, backed by the songwriting duo of Tommy Boyce and Bobby Hart. Mike Nesmith composed and produced songs from the beginning, Tork contributed guitar work on the Nesmith-produced sessions, while all four contributed vocals on various tracks. They eventually fought for the right to collectively supervise all music output under the band's name, acting as actors, musicians, singers, songwriters and producers.

The Monkees self-titled debut and second albums were meant to be a soundtrack to the first season of the TV show, to cash in on the audience. Their second studio album, More Of The Monkees, was recorded in late 1966 and released on Colgems label No. 102 on January 9, 1967. It displaced the band's debut album from the top of the Billboard 200 chart and remained at #1 for 18 weeks — the longest of any Monkees album. Monkeemania had reached full swing by the time the album was released. The Monkees' second single, "I'm a Believer" — included on this album — held the No. 1 position on the Billboard Hot 100 as they were about to embark on a highly successful concert tour. More of the Monkees also went to No. 1 in the U.K. In the U.S., it has been certified quintuple platinum by the RIAA with sales of more than 5 million copies.

More of the Monkees is also notable for being the first pop/rock album to be the best-selling album of the year in the U.S. following the TV show's cancellation in 1968. The Monkees have sold more than 75 million records worldwide making them one of the biggest selling groups of all time. ROG is reissuing their iconic sophomore album as a deluxe 2LP set with bonus tracks (several of which are unreleased mixes) and have lacquers cut from the analog stereo tapes for the first time since 1966; creating the definitive version of this album since its original release!
