Please don't think me biased as 4 of these 5 albums were given to me as birthday presents before I reached the age of 10 years. The tracks have really stood the test of time. The Boyce/Hart anthems still stand up as classic pop, even fledgling new wave in the case of I'm Not Your Steppin' Stone, and it's great that Headquarters, upon which the quartet had more creative control, stands on a par with the other titles here. And once you get past the few slightly crude mixes on some of the tracks on "The Monkees" and "MOTM", the tunes and production are top notch for the era. Sit back and enjoy as these 5 albums are as good as it got for the group and beyond this set, i would suggest you only need invest in a reasonably priced "best of" compilation to gather up the non-album singles (especially the great "A Little Bit Me, a Little Bit You")and later singles like Listen To The Band.
