my Monkees collection….

Yes, I go by the name “monkeemaven” for a reason. My memorabilia/random trinket collection is nonexistant, but I am quite proud of my stash of albums and 45s. CD collection is nothing to scoff at but is nothing unique; I don’t collect bootleg CDs and concert recordings as some do.

Then and Now: The Best of the Monkees

Note- “The Best of the Monkees” and “Then and Now: The Best of the Monkees” have almost identical covers, but are rather different. “The Best of the Monkees” is a double album (apparently made in Canada) and consists entirely of, well, the best of the Monkees. “Then and Now: The Best of the Monkees” is the American version, has just one disc, and three of the songs are new recordings.

The last three listed I haven’t found dates on (yet) , and I have no earthly idea why the names go back and forth as they do. Something to dig up some other day.

Not quite Monkees, but fans would find interesting –

Tommy Boyce & Bobby Hart – Test Patterns ( “Engineered By: Hank Cicallo” )

Rhino R1 70168
Michael Nesmith – The Newer Stuff
