My apologies for the lack of updates on the blog this week...it has been a very busy one. I'm now away on a mini-vacation for a couple of days, and that's why things are a little quiet around here. See you soon!
The following message was posted on The Monkees' official Facebook page today:
Here's a sight to behold! We've unboxed the upcoming MONKEES (SUPER DELUXE EDITION) 3CD box set, and we couldn't be more excited. Each CD in the set – the remastered debut album, the unreleased compilation "Sessions," and the third disc of Davy and Michael's solo projects – comes in it's own beautifully replicated album art slipcase. And, the full color booklet and essay gives you a behind-the-scenes story of the beginning of The Monkees! Individually numbered, limited quantities remain.
Check out these photos, all of which I've never seen previously. I'm going to try and track down this issue in order to post the full article. A big thanks to Jan for the heads up!
A brand new page on Facebook has been created for an upcoming LP/digital collection of the singles Micky released on the MGM label in the 1970s. This would be the first official release of these recordings since that time. According to Iain Lee, who is co-producing the project, Micky has agreed to be interviewed for the liner notes.
Courtesy of the Live Almanac's YouTube channel, check out this rare recording of Micky singing his 1971 single, "Oh Someone," live (to a backing track) on The Larry Kane Show in Houston, Texas in 1971.
Davy's 1987 autobiography is available on Amazon in paperback and as a Kindle download.
Rockers on Broadway will honor both Micky Dolenz and Frankie Valli with Lifetime Achievement Awards on Monday, November 17, 2014 in New York City.
