    Greatest Hits

    The legendary pop/rock superstars The Monkees (Davy Jones, Micky Dolenz, Mike Nesmith and Peter Tork) set the music world on fire back in the '60s. With a very successful television show, massive concert tours, and of course an amazing string of number one albums and hit singles, The Monkees to this day are still revered and loved by their continual growing legion of fans worldwide.


    In 1969, Colgems Records honored these hugely popular rockers with their first hits album simply titled The Monkees Greatest Hits. Filled with a treasure trove of number one singles and hit album tracks from their first five smash albums, this incredible LP also provided the soundtrack to their successful syndicated television run of The Monkees on Saturday mornings.


    No stone is left unturned, as this 14-track masterpiece is loaded with hit singles like Daydream Believer, Last Train To Clarksville, Im A Believer, Pleasant Valley Sunday, Valleri, (Im Not Your) Steppin Stone, plus the appearance of a rare stereo mix of A Little Bit Me, A Little Bit You that was only available on this original vinyl album.


    As one of the most rare albums in their Colgems Records catalog, The Monkees Greatest Hits was only in print for a very short time, making it an instant collectors item, which hasnt seen the light of day for over four decades, that is until now!


    Friday Music presents for the first time on audiophile vinyl, The Monkees Greatest Hits. Mastered impeccably from the original Colgems Records tapes by Joe Reagoso, this amazing pop classic truly shines in the audiophile vinyl domain.

    Headquarters Stack-O-Tracks

    First Time 180 Gram Audiophile Clear Vinyl Release

    Mastered Impeccably By Monkees Fan & Friend Joe Reagoso At Friday Music Studios & Capitol Mastering, Hollywood, CA From The Colgems Record Tapes

    The Summer Of Love's First Album .... Re-Visited.... Re-Imagined...

    The Monkees Headquarters/ Stack-O-Tracks

    The Original Instrumental Backing Tracks To Their Most Celebrated Album

    First Time Authorized Alternate Artwork

    Yes... The Monkees Could Play Guitars, Bass, Drums, Piano, Steel Guitar, Organ, Banjo, Tambourine, Percussion..... and Play Them Well!!!

    In 1967 after two number one albums, a plethora of hit singles and a smash television show, The Monkees were on top and knew they each had true musical talents not championed by their label executives. Michael Nesmith spearheaded a change in direction before sessions began on their legendary Headquarters album. This action resulted in the much-covered dissolution with music mogul Don Kirshner, as Chip Douglas (The Turtles) was now recruited by Nesmith to work with the band.

    In rapid succession, things began to fall into place in February 1967. With initial tracks like country rocker Sunny Girlfriend, the band set the stage for what would become one of the most loved works in their catalog and one of the finest rock albums of a generation. A definite album opener, You Told Me begins Headquarters. The track features a brilliant 12 string guitar of Nesmith, as Tork's incredible banjo fills the track alongside Dolenz's driving drum work. With Jones' percussion, it became the very first song that many of us remember as we opened up our new copies back in the summer of '67. Not straying too far from previous success, the band scored a few more of Boyce and Hart compositions like Micky Dolenz's folk rock ballad I'll Spend My Life With You. The solid steel guitar work of Mike Nesmith became somewhat of a precursor to his groundbreaking Nashville sessions in the late sixties. Davy Jones has several watershed moments here with both Forget That Girl and Early Morning Blues and Greens Forget That Girl employs a unique English northern soul vibe, while the latter shares a wonderful rhythm presentation making it one of the more psychedelic infused and standout tracks on the LP. Michael Nesmith's handiwork is radiant on the entire album. You May Just Be The One rocks the album into full gear and makes it one of his and the bands' definitive landmark tracks. Headquarters also brought rightful acclaim to Peter Tork, as his first recorded Monkees' song For Pete's Sake soon became a prolific standard. The song transcended with the times and became one of the more insightful tunes from the quartet. It also replaced the familiar Monkees Theme at the end of season two, giving the song more TV exposure over the years. And as always, you can count on Micky Dolenz to deliver - whether it's his hard rock driving drum work on rockers like Randy Scouse Git & No Time, or his prog-rock feel on Mr. Webster, the album was definitely a great showcase for the artist.

    The Monkees' Headquarters was one of 4 albums of The Monkees that topped the charts in 1967. This fact alone is enough to warrant the importance of this album in musical history. But there are other amazing feats that Headquarters managed to deliver to millions of fans on its eventful release back in May of 1967. The album hit the stores before Sgt. Pepper's Lonely Hearts Club Band by The Beatles. Friendly rivals as they were, Headquarters rose to number one and also opened the door to The Summer of Love. It remained in the upper rung of the retail charts until their fourth platter Pisces, Aquarius, Capricorn & Jones Ltd. became a number one album to close out the year. Wow! Most notably, Headquarters showed the real world the transition of four talented guys on a hit TV show evolving into a self-produced, self-reliant, and one of the most loved bands in musical history, and yes, they could actually play their instruments .and they did it well!

    As another installment in our extensive Monkees catalog, Friday Music is pleased to announce a unique revisit to their third masterwork as we've now gone back to the original backing tracks and have assembled a fun and exciting instrumental Lp with The Monkees Headquarters Stack-O-Tracks. For this limited edition Friday Music release, we are pleased to offer for the first time on vinyl, the rare backing instrumental backing tracks, newly and impeccably mastered by Joe Reagoso (The Monkees/Brian Wilson) from the original Colgems Records masterwork.

    Joe Reagoso notes You've never heard 'Shades Of Gray' until you hear the strings up front like you will on this new vinyl release. Michael Nesmith's work on 'You May Just Be The One' is beyond thrilling, you feel like you are in the studio with the band as they knock out this and other Monkees classics. From beginning to end, song after song, we always knew how special Headquarter was, and now this further showcases the artistry and musical acumen each man brought to the sessions. Truly a crowning achievement. To further enhance your Monkees listening enjoyment, we are also pressing the limited edition album on clear 180 Gram audiophile vinyl, as well as including a revisit to the original album cover artwork, now with the rare Monkees beard photo not issued on vinyl in many years, and first time authorized colorization effects to the original artwork to celebrate fifty years of this classic rock album for the fans. 1967 ..The Summer Of Love A very hip time in our American culture you can now relive with these newly impeccably mastered recordings from the much-loved band that broke a lot of ground in a very short time and made the world a much better place for it The Monkees Headquarters Stack-O- Tracks Only From Your Friends At Friday Music!

    Head Alternate

    Celebrate The Monkees 1968 Counter Culture Classic! Alternatively!!!


    First Time Vinyl Rare Mixes, Rare Stereo Versions & Alternate Tracks


    Pressed On Limited Edition 180 Translucent Gold Vinyl


    Presented In A First Time Stunning Gold Foil Cover (Front & Back) & Full Color Back Cover With Alternate Photo Of Band


    Mastered Impeccably From The Colgems Records Tapes By Joe Reagoso


    1968 was an interesting year for The Monkees. Aside from releasing more hit singles & another smash Lp with The Birds The Bees & The Monkees, future superstar and upcoming filmmaker Jack Nicholson, Bob Rafelson & The Monkees were developing the concept for a psychedelic film about this successful rock band who were trying to escape from their manufactured image. Albeit an underlying glimpse of reality, the movie wound up being a swan song for the original line-up of the band until 1996's Justus. As the Head movie was underrated at the time, it has since gone on to become ranked as one of the finest films in the rock genre.


    The original soundtrack of Head by The Monkees has a history itself as being one of their strongest albums with stellar material ranging from The Monkees' Michael Nesmith and Peter Tork, plus more great tracks from Harry Nilsson and Carole King with musical help from friends like Carole King, Stephen Stills and Dewey Martin from Buffalo Springfield.


    A hit single emerged with Porpoise Song featuring the powerful lead vocal of Micky Dolenz, as the rest of the album is interwoven with keen Monkees dialog and skits that were in the original film, plus the stellar score by Ken Thorne.


    In honor of The Monkees, Friday Music is once again pleased to continue the celebration of the Monkees Golden Anniversary with The Monkees Head Alternate. This first-time vinyl album features first-time vinyl versions of Porpoise Song, rarities like Can You Dig It with Peter Tork's vocal, Daddy's Song remixed with the long sought after Davy Jones' slow verse, and the rare stereo mix of Circle Sky.


    Produced by The Monkees in 1968, this stunning new version is now impeccably mastered by Monkees fan and friend Joe Reagoso and pressed on 180 Gram Audiophile Translucent Gold Vinyl.


    For the very limited Golden Anniversary edition, the LP cover will be manufactured with a stunning gold foil front and back, featuring a rare alternate color photo of the band on the back cover.


    Simply one of the finest rock soundtracks of all time!

    In September 1966, Micky Dolenz, Davy
    Jones, Michael Nesmith and Peter Tork debuted

    the form of a smash TV show, a #1 debut album
    The Monkees and a #1 hit single Last Train To
    Clarksville. The Monkees were now the face of
    young people everywhere and they were here to
    stay.


    Friday Music is no stranger to the amazing
    recording career of The Monkees. As a tribute
    to the band, the music and the memories, we are
    very honored to announce the colossal audiophile
    vinyl box set The Monkees In Mono. Mastered for
    the first time for audiophile vinyl from the original
    Colgems Records monophonic tapes by Joe
    Reagoso (The Monkees), this super limited edition
    deluxe box set features their first five
    mono albums: The Monkees, More
    Of The Monkees, Headquarters,
    Pisces, Aquarius, Capricorn & Jones
    Ltd., and The Birds, The Bees & The
    Monkees, all in their restored individual stunning

    mixes than their stereo counterparts.


    Headquarters will always be one of those
    "must haves in mono" and now you have it .

    spot with Pieces, Aquarius .


    Both Pisces, Aquarius, Capricorn & Jones Ltd.
    & The Birds, The Bees & The Monkees are two of
    the rarest mono albums from the band, as stereo

    albums were soon discontinued. We have now
    gone back to the Colgems mono tapes and have
    put these back in circulation on vinyl for the first
    time in 46 years!

    Justus

    First time 180 Gram Audiophile Vinyl Release... Their final work together... captured in the audiophile domain... only from your friends at Friday Music... It Looks Like We've Made It Once Again!


    The Monkees have been one of the world's most enduring rock and pop acts of all time. Since their beginnings in 1966, their television show, multiplatinum albums, hit singles and concert tours truly made The Monkees one of the most colossal stories ever in the music business.


    In 1996, after a thirty year hiatus as a quartet, the original Monkees Davy Jones, Michael Nesmith, Micky Dolenz and Peter Tork went back to the studio and recorded what would ultimately be their final studio project, the Justus album. Noted for their return to the studio and touring around the legendary release, this final work also found The Monkees as the sole musicians, vocalists, writers and production team for all of the tracks assembled for the recording. The results truly showed one of the more organically produced albums ever from their superstar catalog of fine recordings.Originally an idea spearheaded by Michael Nesmith, the Justus album was conceptual in nature almost mirroring the original idea behind their classic Headquarters album, which like Justus, showcased these four musical talents as a team and offered no single track to radio but instead a full musical album listening experience.


    Opening up with a new take on Circle Sky, Michael Nesmith is on top of his game with this metal-like rocker originally from Head. Featuring a wall of loud guitars, retro lyrics and chorus, this classic track was performed at the reunion concerts around this album, and once again reemphasized the importance of the original quartet setting, making this a great intro track.


    Davy Jones belts out one of his finest compositions with the uptempo groove of Oh, What A Night. The tune truly resonated with the fans back then and continues to be one of the more appreciated classics in his long list of time tested Monkees favorites.
    Micky Dolenz and Davy Jones repeat the magic with their revisit of You And I from their Dolenz, Jones, Boyce & Hart era. Featuring a strong vocal performance by the duo and the stunning guitar work of both Monkees' Peter Tork and Michael Nesmith, this track truly captures the innocence and the feel of their sixties sound, as it became a time tested track well into their final tour of 2011.


    Much like their Instant Replay (FRM 113) album, Micky Dolenz contributes a good helping of original compositions to the Justus project. Either rockers like Dyin' Of A Broken Heart, the blues balladry of It's My Life, or the Rolling Stones vibe of Regional Girl, the Justus album was a watershed for Dolenz's writings and vocal prowess which truly makes this 1996 session a true winner.


    Peter Tork was always one of the more intriguing writers and musicians of the band, and it is fitting that the more progressive sounds would derive from his pen with the classic I Believe You as well as his fine prog-rock track Run Away From Life featuring the powerful vocals of Davy Jones.
    The late great Davy Jones gets the honor of closing out this wonderful album with his classic ballad It's Not Too Late. With his stunning vocal and heartfelt lyrics, and the brilliant chorus from the his Monkees brethren, the song in itself is a fitting tribute to these four geniuses, as the legacy of this superstar band will forever stand the test of time.


    Friday Music is once again very honored to announce the continuation of The Monkees Friday Music 180 Gram Audiophile Series with the first time vinyl album release of their 1996 masterwork Justus. Mastered by Joe Reagoso (The Monkees/Elvis Presley/Brian Wilson) from the original Rhino Records tapes at Friday Music Studios, this first time audiophile vinyl release is also for a very short time being offered in limited edition clear vinyl as well as a first time gatefold cover presentation.

    Good Times!

    Who's ready to have some fun with The Monkees as they celebrate their 50th anniversary? With a tour kicking off in May and the group's first new album in 20 years, GOOD TIMES!, releasing, Monkee-mania will be taking 2016 by storm!


    GOOD TIMES! features all three surviving band members - Micky Dolenz, Michael Nesmith, and Peter Tork. The unmistakable voice of the late Davy Jones is also included with a vintage vocal featured on one song. 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).


    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 (Weezer), Ben Gibbard (Death Cab For Cutie), Andy Partridge (XTC), and Zach Rogue (Rogue Wave) as well as a song co-written by Noel Gallagher and Paul Weller. The album also includes songwriting contributions by Nesmith ("I Know What I Know") and Tork as well as producer Schlesinger.


    To help bring the anniversary full circle, The Monkees completed songs for GOOD TIMES! that were originally recorded and written for the group during the 60s, including "Love To Love" by Neil Diamond, which features a vintage vocal by Jones. 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." Other vintage 1960's tracks included on GOOD TIMES! feature L.A.'s famed "Wrecking Crew" of session musicians.


    "This is one of the most exciting Monkee projects I've been involved in for decades!" says Dolenz. "Working with Adam Schlesinger has been a pure delight and the opportunity to sing a duet with my old buddy, Harry Nilsson, is just beyond cool!"

    Best Of Love

    First Time Audiophile Vinyl Release Of Their Historic Elektra Records Era

    The legendary underground rock superstars Love fronted by the brilliant Arthur Lee and his fellow
    rockers Bryan MacLean, Alban Pfisterer, Johnny Echols, Ken Forsi, John Fleckenstein and Michael Stuart set the music world on fire back in the mid to late sixties with their hypnotic brand of rock 'n roll. With major exposure on L.A.'s Sunset Strip, along with fellow mega bands The Byrds and The Doors, Love's eclectic songs, master showmanship and stellar music abilities made them one of the few premiere bands who helped architect the fusion of acid and garage rock, which is still heard in alternative rock of today. Love to this day are still revered and loved by their continual growing legion of fans worldwide.

    As one of the more rare albums in their catalog, Best Of Love has been out of print for years, making
    it an instant collector's item, which hasn't seen the light of day for over four decades that is until now!

    David Jones

    Monkees 50th Anniversary Of Davy Jones' Super Rare 1965 Debut Album


    First Time 180 Gram Vinyl With Gatefold Cover


    Mastered Impeccably By Joe Reagoso At Friday Music & Capitol Mastering


    Featuring What Are We Going To Do & Bob Dylans' It Ain't Me Babe


    Only in America can a young lad from Manchester, England break into show business playing The Artful Dodger in Oliver in New York City...winning accolades and a Tony Award nomination from the theater world one day.... and then mastering his craft on The Ed Sullivan Show the same night of The Beatles huge breakthrough, then signing a deal with Colpix Records the same night! A year later, he and three other gents became runaway teen idols on television, topping the charts all over the world as The Monkees, outselling The Beatles for a period and maintaining the coveted number one slot with several hit singles and albums over the next few years ..... Only in America.


    This isn't make believe. It is the fabulous rise to fame in a hurry story courtesy of a superstar pop rock legend Davy Jones ..and the massive recording career that started with his long out of print first album David Jones.


    Recorded throughout 1965 with a bevy of the hottest songwriters in the Columbia Pictures stable, this pop gem contained the rudiments of a major career which has endured for many years since.


    Prior to his untimely death in 2012, Davy proudly noted to Friday Music "Did you know that Dream Girl went to number one in Australia?" Relaying the fact that Philly artist Van McCoy wrote this northern soul sounding track, Jones truly smiled at the U.K. term as this song had the arrangements and feel of r&b bands of the day like The Drifters and The Shirelles. This soulful side of Davy Jones would later show up on The Monkees hits like She Hangs Out, A Man Without A Dream and Forget That Girl.


    The album's second single What Are We Going To Do? was a slight departure. It followed more of a Brit pop feel, and it warranted solid chart exposure as well as appearances on national TV shows like Shindig!


    The brightest stars of the classic pop era also contributed to this album and would soon follow Davy Jones on his path to Monkeemania. Superstars like Carole King/Gerry Goffin, Barry Mann/Cynthia Weil, David Gates from Bread, Toni Wine who would later sing lead vocals on The Archies records and Bob Dylan with It Ain't Me Babe, which was also a hit for The Turtles that same year.


    Friday Music is proud to offer this fine album for the first time in fifty years! This first time 180 gram audiophile vinyl Lp is now mastered impeccably by Joe Reagoso (The Monkees) from the super rare Colpix Records stereo tapes, which truly shows a transition from pop crooner to future rock star.


    In 1967, the David Jones l.p. charted thanks to his rise to fame as a member of The Monkees and the album cover was cleverly featured in The Monkees TV show episode, Monkees At The Movies.

    Changes

    As their ninth and last album from their hit making 1966-1970 era, The Monkees Changes is one of their most collectable efforts fetching over $300 for a mint copy of the album. This highly regarded fan favorite was a treasure trove of songs providing the soundtrack to the final year of their Saturday afternoon television show, as it featured the double-sided hit single Oh My My and I Love You Better.


    Micky Dolenz and Davy Jones first class musicianship excel throughout this 1970 session. They revisit the great Boyce and Hart with I Never Thought It Peculiar as well as Davy Jones rockin' delivery on 99 Pounds and the underrated Micky Dolenz performance Ticket On Ferry Ride.


    Produced by the much acclaimed sixties producer/writer Jeff Barry (The Monkees, Neil Diamond, The Archies), Changes was the first full-fledged production by this Monkees collaborator as it showed the true pop genius of both the band and producer in the studio. Augmented with some very cool seventies writers Andy Kim (Rock Me Gently) and the late Bobby Bloom (Montego Bay), this later Monkees album truly was a grand farewell from this band until their unbelievable history making 1986 return.


    Unavailable for many years on compact disc, The Monkees Changes is available once again from the original Colgems Records recordings and features three huge bonus tracks not on the original album, including the very rare and hard to find Bell Records 45 Do It In The Name Of Love , plus new liners from Monkees historian Joe Reagoso, as well as original artwork elements and rare picture sleeves and other memorbilla.

    Now That Everything's Been Said

    We all know the Carole King who wrote some of the biggest hits of the '60s, from "Will You Love Me Tomorrow" to "Pleasant Valley Sunday," via "The Locomotion" and "(You Make Me Feel Like) A Natural Woman." We also know the singer-songwriter behind Tapestry, the album that launched King as a solo singer in her own right. But in between-and not nearly as well known-is King's band, The City, and their album, Now That Everything's Been Said.


    By the mid-'60s, King's marriage to Gerry Goffin, with whom she'd written many of those wonderful hits, had hit the rocks. A divorce loomed, and King all but retired to raise their two daughters. She headed west to Laurel Canyon in '67, taking the children with her, and made the previously unlikely move of joining a progressive folk-rock band. King formed The City with future husband Charles Larkey on bass and Danny Kortchmar on guitar and vocals. With King on piano and vocals, they created a folk rock sound that pre-empted the singer-songwriter boom of the '70s.


    Produced by Lou Adler and featuring Jimmy Gordon on drums, The City's sound is deep and soulful, imperfect but passionate. And the songs, with King writing or co-writing all but one, are as exceptional as you'd expect and as widely covered as her factory work. "Now That Everything's Been Said" was a hit for American Spring, "A Man Without A Dream" was tackled by The Monkees, and "Hi-De-Ho (That Old Sweet Roll)" was a hit for Blood, Sweat & Tears. Central to the album's appeal is King's own stirring reading of her track "Wasn't Born To Follow," covered masterfully by The Byrds for the Easy Rider soundtrack.


    King had been used to a life on the sidelines, and her stage fright left the trio unable to tour the LP which adversely affected their fortunes. That, plus some behind-the-scenes distribution problems, meant the album was quickly deleted, and it remained so for the next thirty years-partly at King's request. Even so, its failure was a surprise to those concerned. "I was 26 when Now That Everything's Been Said was released in 1968," King says of the album. "[We] expected it to zoom to the top of the charts within, at most, a few weeks. Individually and together, we optimistically imagined the album's success as if it had already happened. Danny and Charlie kept telling each other, 'It's a great album. The City is gonna be Number 1 with a bullet!'


    Listening now, you can feel the threads that lead to Tapestry and to the hugely successful performing career that followed. It's not so much an oddity in King's work as the missing link between her two lives. Reissued here in deluxe vinyl, this is, at long last, a chance to own this lost album.

    Instant Replay

    The Monkees have been one of the world's most enduring rock and pop acts of all time. Since their beginnings in 1966, their television show, multiplatinum albums, hit singles and concert tours truly made The Monkees one of the most colossal stories in the music business. In 1969, Davy Jones, Michael Nesmith and Micky Dolenz went back to the studio as a trio this time and recorded the classic Instant Replay album. Noted for their hit single Tear Drop City, this masterwork also found The Monkees reuniting with the production team of Tommy Boyce and Bobby Hart for several of the tracks as well as previous team Monkees writers like Carole King and Neil Sedaka, and highly touted producers like Bones Howe (The Association/Tom Waits) and Shorty Rogers and resulted in some of the finest collaborations ever with this superstar act. Instant Replay also offered the first look at Michael Nesmith's experimental and groundbreaking recording sessions in Nashville as well as solid compositions from all three Monkees.


    Opening up with the pop rocker Through The Looking Glass, Micky Dolenz is on top of his game vocally with a brilliant background of horns, Bobby Hart on piano and guitar work by legends Keith Allison (Paul Revere & The Raiders) and Gerry McGee (The Ventures/John Mayall). A major fan favorite, this classic was performed at many of the reunion concerts over the years. The late great Davy Jones belts out another Boyce and Hart classic with the haunting ballad Don't Listen To Linda. The tune truly resonated with the fans back then and continues to be one of the more appreciated classics in his long list of time tested Monkees favorites. Carole King and Gerry Goffin's I Won't Be The Same Without Her features a strong vocal performance by Michael Nesmith and the stunning guitar work of both Monkees' Peter Tork and Glen Campbell. A real summer time feeling song, this track would be a nice bridge to Micky Dolenz's orchestral masterpiece Just A Game.


    It is no secret that Nesmith was a fan of country music, but also lauded as one of the first pioneers of the country rock genre, not only with his contributions to the earlier Monkees' recordings as far back as Papa Gene's Blues, even for other noted artists like Linda Ronstadt for whom he penned her first smash single Different Drum. For the Instant Replay album, Nesmith ventured to Nashville's RCA Studios and cut Don't Wait For Me, the first released tune from his now famous Nashville sessions. With the fusion of country studio players and the voice and guitar of Michael Nesmith, The Monkees again were on the forefront of this new genre and would continue with this groundbreaking sound ever more so into future classics like The Monkees Present.


    As the '60s would come to a close, Davy Jones would also contribute his major impact on the generation with his truly hip and psychedelic masterpiece You And I. Noted for its hard rock opening to side two, the track also features the stunning lead guitar textures of Neil Young who recently departed with The Buffalo Springfield. More favorites like Nesmith's While I Cry is one of the artist's finest compositions of the era. With Mike's beautiful acoustic guitar work and help from friends like Harry Nilsson, this ballad would truly become one of the more enduring songs from this 1969 classic Monkees album.


    Neil Sedaka and Carol Bayer Sager contribute one of the classiest Monkees ballads ever with The Girl I Left Behind Me. Once again, the late great Davy Jones provides a superstar vocal second to none, with a soulful orchestra fill and band setting featuring the production and skillful piano work of Neil Sedaka, while Micky Dolenz would close out the album with his classic Shorty Blackwell. The whimsical tale of Micky's cat and a nod to his friends The Beatles' A Day In The Life, Shorty Blackwell would take almost a year to record and feature a bevy of the original wrecking crew of Hollywood musicians like drummer Jim Gordon (Eric Clapton/Traffic), Tommy Tedesco on guitar and even his sister Coco Dolenz on vocals. This track along with the other eleven tunes make this one of the more enduring and loved albums in the superior catalog of Monkees classics.


    Friday Music is once again very honored to announce the continuation of The Monkees Friday Music 180 Gram Audiophile Series with the re-release of their 1969 masterwork Instant Replay. Mastered by Joe Reagoso (The Monkees/Elvis Presley/Brian Wilson) from the original Colgems Records tapes at Friday Music Studios, this first time audiophile vinyl release is also for a very short time being offered in limited edition red vinyl as well as a first time gatefold cover presentation.

    Head

    Head is The Monkees audacious soundtrack to the 1968 psychedelic comedy/adventure film of the same name written and produced by Bob Rafelson and Jack Nicholson. The Frank Zappa-esque affair intersperses six proper songs with incidental music from Ken Thorne, dialogue fragments and odd sound effects, resulting in some of the most ambitious and rewarding material of the Monkees musical career.
    1. Opening Ceremony
    2. Porpoise Song (Theme from Head)
    3. Ditty Diego - War Chant
    4. Circle Sky
