Biography

The Monkees (Michael Nesmith, Davy Jones, Micky Dolenz and Peter Tork) were pulled together in order to star in a successful comedy television show first aired on NBC in 1966.

The music for the series had been created by Don Kirschner and throughout the life of the band, many more esteemed songwriters added their input to The Monkees phenomenon, including Neil Diamond ("A Little Bit ... Read more in Amazon's Monkees Store

Product Description

CD Description

Head contains songs and snippets of dialogue from the Monkees' full-length feature film of the same name; a 90-minute surreal, psychedelic, comedy adventure, which was the band’s first and only theatrical release. Notable tracks include Micky Dolenz's vocals on two Carole King works: the ethereal "Porpoise Song,", and the Toni Stern collaboration on the pastoral "As We Go Along."

4.0 out of 5 stars A Psychedelic Classic 7 Jan 2001
By A Customer
Format:Audio CD
Forget the zany, madcap Monkees that sang cheeky pop songs such as Last Train To Clarksville and I'm A Believer, this is a collection of experimental songs that even Radiohead would be hard pressed to match!
The soundtrack to the 1968 movie of the same name (it even includes sound bites from the film) Head starts with a psychedelic masterpiece, The Porpoise Song, that wouldn't sound out of place on Sergeant Pepper.
It is a mass of swirling 60's organs and dreamy vocals by Micky Dolenz - a truly under-rated singer - if you have not heard this song before, prepare to be absolutely astonished! The other stand out track is the beautiful As We Go Along. This is one of the most touching ballads ever recorded, Dolenz again singing tenderly to an acoustic backing supplied by Neil Young, Carole King and Ry Cooder(!) The price of the album is worth it for these two songs alone. Sheer excellence!
Circle Sky is Mike Nesmith's wonderful attempt at punk, 8 years before it happened and Can You Dig It has an eastern feel which adds to the colour of the album. Do I Have To Do This All Over Again features a rare Peter Tork vocal, and tumbles wildly into a fantastic guitar break and frenzied fade out. Oh, and Davy Jones sings one as well, but still...
If you are looking to buy a Monkees album with all the hits on, then go for the greatest hits collections. If you are looking for an interesting, intelligent album that over the years has matured into a cult classic, then look no further. Head this way!

4.0 out of 5 stars Surreal, fun and funky 2 Feb 2000
Format:Audio CD
Not at all what I expected from this band - no Beach Boys-y stuff. Just as mad as the series with some excellent tunes. Calm ones, manic ones, romantic ones and Head ones. Several bits of wacked out text as well. Excellent stuff.

4.0 out of 5 stars Some Outstanding Recordings in a Mixed Bag 17 Sep 2006
Format:Audio CD
"Head" was the last Monkees album to feature all four original members. Guitarist Pete Tork left the band shortly after finishing the album.

Though it's a soundtrack and not a regular album it contains some of the Monkees' finest recordings. Especially the two Carole King songs "Porpoise Song" and "As We Go Along" are outstanding. Also Tork's "Can You Dig it" and Nesmith's "Circle Sky" are Monkees classics.

Only 6 tracks on the original album are actually music. The rest of it is soundclips and dialouge; some of it quite entertaining.

Taken from the sleeve notes Jack Nicholson played a big part in the album's/movie's creation, which sounds to be pretty weird.

The bonus tracks are mostly alternate takes - most interesting is the fine live version of "Circle Sky" recorded in May 1968.

The list of guest musicians is impressive, featuring names like Leon Russell, Bill Chadwick, Dewey Martin, Carole King, Neil Young and Ry Cooder.

5.0 out of 5 stars "supernatural, perhaps: baloney Perhaps not" 27 Oct 2003
Format:Audio CD
a fascinating disc..
although I first got familiar with the monkees with their
thight direct sparklin and polished early products like song in the type of "Im a beliver and theme from the monkees"
Regardless of this while after reading reviews of their discs and listening to outtakes and such.. my intrest för my first purchase in their catalog came to be "The official soundtrack för their 1968 film head"
There is a cool spirit surrounding this whole disc Its clearly alot more loose and less clean than the early songs perhaps
but there is obvoius quality in this... more free form monkees

and therefor I wish for all listners not be "freightened" by this release
Beacuse they really went in deep for this production
with a mix of the groovy organ and echofphrased flow of propoise song from the wacky but yet truthfull ditty diego (warchant) that really show the monkees making fun of themselves
there is also amazing sound collages .. although some rather bizarre that are put inbetween the songs(coordinated by film director jack nicholson) somtimes mixed with parts of the songs in the middle or just neat dialogs mixed prior to the songs
as far as the songs goes each of them are great the dreamy spirit about them is always perhaps the most catchy is davy Jones little swingin number daddys song that has some neat jazzy orchestra work with it aswell
while the rock n roll is at high peak on circle sky and also on Pete Torks "Do have to do this all over again" that features a great mix between both rock blues and even a more folkier sound during the flute part, a more gentler piece is their with the little mellow swing of the amazing as we go along, a little folkie inspiered tune that even features neil young on guitar(!
