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.

Product Description

Amazon.co.uk

Assembled via casting call as American television's answer to the Beatles, the Monkees incurred the wrath of "serious" critics from L.A. to London. But as initially manufactured pop commodities, the band distinguished itself from latter-day pretenders to the throne like The Backstreet Boys with a willful--and sometimes perverse--drive to wrest control of their own musical destiny from the all-star stable of songwriters and producers (including Boyce and Hart, King and Goffin, Mann and Weil, Neil Diamond and Chip Douglas) who made them pop stars. But then, maybe the notoriously frenzied 1960s had something to with it: their artistic legacy in that decade bridged both Don Kirshner and Jack Nicholson; it was Jimi Hendrix who opened for them. Even more unlikely, that legacy had a three-decade-plus staying power well beyond its obvious nostalgic charms.

While Rhino has previously reissued and anthologised the Monkees' catalogue to seemingly exhaustive extremes, this four-disc, 99-track compendium (each individually annotated by band members and songwriters in the set's colourful booklet) is the only one that spans their full recorded output. Structured around the A- and B-sides of the band's singles, strong album cuts and outtakes (including three previously unreleased) it's a journey that's both comfortably familiar and occasionally surprising. The band's individual parts are showcased well: Mike Nesmith's tuneful, pioneering country-rock; Davy Jones' Broadway-honed panache; Peter Tork's spirituality and innate musical chemistry; Micky Dolenz' loopiness and occasionally avant-garde instincts. But by the sometimes spotty fourth disc (largely spanning the mid-70s to mid-90s), the band's output was hampered by partial line-ups, part-time commitments and, perhaps ironically, the lack of the very pop song-crafter thoroughbreds who helped establish their legend in the first place. --Jerry McCulley

5.0 out of 5 stars This is All You Need! 8 Oct 2006
Format:Audio CD
This is really a great box-set. I think it has it all - 99 tracks!! Obviously all the hit-singles, the majority of their best album tracks, rare b-sides, lots of outtakes, alternate versions and even tracks that have never before been commercially available.

The Monkees made some great recordings: especially from 1966-68. They released at least two classic albums, ( 1967's "Headquarters" and "Pisces, Aquarious, Capricorn and Jones Ltd." . Bandmember Mike Nesmith was/is a terrific songwriter and producer, and he was one of the often overlooked pioneers of country-rock. As TV-stars they were supplied with great material by some of America's most talented songwriters like Goffin/King and Neil Diamond.

The 100 pages CD book contains a very detailed band-history, great photos and extensive notes about every song.

Unfortunately the book is not made very solid; it has to be treated very carefully or the pages will get loose and fall out.

If you are not a completist, this box is actually all you need if you want the essence of the Monkees.

5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent compilation! 9 May 2001
Format:Audio CD
Finally, a more detailed compilation of the Monkees. This box set includes the usual songs like Clarksville, Believer etc., but it includes some of the more rare material like 'Tear the Top Right Off My Head' and 'Come on In'. It also contains material from the unavailable album 'Changes', and their last album, 'Justus'. Some of the songs take a while to get used to, but they grow on you. Forget buying other compilations, this is the ultimate collection and well worth the money.

5.0 out of 5 stars Monkees Music Box 12 Mar 2006
By Francois The Armaldo VINE VOICE
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
The first time around in the 60s I was too young, although a teenager, to appreciate the Monkees, but I did record some of their songs.The second time around for their tv show in the 80s I was a young woman, and watched every one, enjoying the madness and songs. The third time around, as a mum in the 90s I taped every show, just for the songs. When a special birthday came around, I wanted a tangible gift to myself, and this was it. It's all you'll need. Enjoy the beautiful haunting "Do not ask for Love" with harpsichord, which I had never heard, the silly, but great "Auntie Griselda" and many tracks with the unforgettable velvet voice of Mike Nesmith, whose base guitar is as beautiful as his voice.With nearly a hundred tracks no-one can say you didn't get your money's worth! And it's presented in a gorgeous book with loads of information and photos. Put it on, turn it up and revel!

It is now 6 1/2 years later and every time I put on one of these cds my daughter is used to me saying "I love my Monkees music box"! I didn't enjoy the later songs very much when I got this but I do now. I love the way horns were incorporated along the way, as they give a lovely smooth sound, and the sound evolved as they matured. I now have more favourites which I just repeat.
I never thought that Mike Nesmith got a fair bash at lead vocals, as I love his voice, but where he does it is absolute heaven! His guitar playing is also sublime. Listen to disc 4 track 6 "While I cry". and track 4 "I won't be the same without her".
So great being able to listen to snippets of tracks on Amazon, which is what got me to buy this. Thirty seconds of Davy singing "Look out here comes tomorrow" is all you need! One of the best things I have ever bought, and I am still in love with it. Yay!!

5.0 out of 5 stars Brilliant Monkees Collection 23 Oct 2011
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
I purchased this box set as i am a huge fan of the Monkees and i certainly was not disappointed. Although the first 2 disks have songs which are available on any Monkees greatest hits album the other 2 disks has songs which i had never heard before. it is really good to hear unrealeased versions of songs also.
