5.0 out of 5 stars Plastic Treasure Trove, 4 Dec 2013
This review is from: The Definitive Monkees (Audio CD)
This review is for the two-disc "The definitive The Monkees, limited edition"
The following tracks are not available on the expanded editions of The Monkees studio albums original, released in the 1960s (I know!).

Terria Dei Monkees (Nistri/Boyce/Hart)
Teeny Tiny Gnome (Erwin/Castle)
Apples, Peaches, Bananas & Pears (Boyce/Hart)
Riu Chiu (Trad.)
Merry go-round (Tork/Hiderbrand)
War Games (Jones/Pitts)
Seeger's Theme (Seeger)
Party (Pitts/Jones)
Shake `em up (leiber/Stoller)
Propinquity (I've just begun to care) (Nesmith)
Look down (King/Stern)
The Crippled Lion (Nesmith)
Hollywood (Nesmith)
How Insensitive (Jobin/Demoraers/Gimbel)
Michigan Blackhawk (Nesmith)
My Share of the sidewalk (Nesmith)
If you have time (Chadwick/Jones)
Storybook of you (Boyce/Hart)
You're so good (Stone)
Steam engine (Douglas)
Angel Band (Nesmith)
Litter Red Rider (Nesmith)

There really are some outstanding songs on the compilation, with great pop of Boyce/Hart's "Apples, Peaches, Bananas & Pears", "Storybook of you" & King/Stern's
"Look down", to a rare Peter Tork song "Merry go-round" (done in an interesting lullaby style) & Gregorian chant influenced "Riu Chiu".
But the highlights of the album for me, are the Mike Nesmith's Country/Rock composures, a real blueprint to what he would record during his solo career (also worth checking out).
So if you fan of The Monkees studio albums & not just greatest hits, then this album is an essential purchase, but even if you want just the popular songs you have them all on the first disc.
