The Definitive Monkees - Too much Monkee business!,
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: The Definitive Monkees (Audio CD)
In this impressive two disc set we finally have a release that does justice to the Monkees, a great band - no matter what the critics say!
Hanving made do for years with an old best of, with a mere 10 tracks and really murky sound, I am thoroughly enjoying this set which allows me to hear all of the group's hits, the cheery pop, the odd hippy later work and, as a special bonus, some solo material from band members and some real rarities and oddities. IT's been great to hear something other than the usual few tracks, and to see the other direction the band were going in.
There is an extensive booklet with essays and recording details. The tracks have been remastered and sound quite superb now. I highly recommend this set to anyone looking for a decent Monkees release that goes a little beyond the obvious few hits.
