"Thrilled to share Rhino's announcement on Tommy Boyce's birthday of this fantastic set. I am really proud of how this came together: a bunch of heretofore unissued tracks, a new essaay and a good selection of unpublished photos.
It gets tougher and tougher to deal with everyone's 'what's left?' questions. The answer in this case is some truly significant finds that only surfaced recently. My personal favorites are the TV mixes which were expertly transferred from the original film elements by Sony. They have full fades and no dialogue or effects over the top. Was as excited to hear these as I was when I was a kid first watching the show.
At my heart, I am a fan and I love doing projects for the fans. My presentations of the Monkees in print, on record and the live tours all come from that place. I am proud of my association with them and Rhino.
No one has to buy this - but if you have the other sets, I am positive you will enjoy it. I really enjoyed crafting this one just for you - and you know who you are..."
