Monkees archivist Andrew Sandoval posted this on his Facebook page yesterday:
"I would have to say this is a pretty big deal. The final box set in a series of Deluxe Editions I started in 2006 to commemorate the 40th anniversary of The Monkees. Now we are a few years shy of their 50th and my restoration work is just about done. Rhino could have, of course, issued all of these things many years back, but its a "process" as they say. Looking forward to writing about the final full year of The Monkees, 1969, and discussing some truly top drawer recordings on this set: "Little Girl," "If I Knew" and "Listen To The Band." It was a thrill to hear some of these tunes again - I had forgotten how strong the "new" recordings were on this set. Good Clean Fun."
