I added a few new pictures to the following sections: 1966-1967 North American, 1967 North American/British, 1986 North American and 2001 North American.
Be sure to visit the 1967 North American/British section. There is a new and rarely seen photo of Micky Dolenz jumping into the pool at the Hollywood Bowl during The Monkees' performance there in June 1967.
Some live audio and other goodies were uploaded to the Live Almanac's YouTube channel today as well.

According to Monkees.net, Friday Music will be releasing a deluxe edition of The Monkees' 1987 album, Pool It!, on March 27. Here's what they had to say:
It’s Official….On March 27th, Friday Music will be releasing POOL IT!/THE DELUXE EDITION. To celebrate the 25th Anniversary of this Monkees classic, Friday Music will be issuing the original compact disc with bonus tracks, plus a separate DVD of the super rare Monkees Rhino Video HEART & SOUL- The Official Monkees Videography. The liner notes also feature a recent conversation with Micky Dolenz, as well as the usual cool rare picture sleeves, 45 rpm labels, and other cool photos and elements from the original 1987 release. The CD sounds impeccable and the video is a treasure trove for the fans as it includes all three videos from the album, including the rare DON’T BRING ME DOWN video.
Be sure you are visiting the Live Almanac's YouTube Channel. More videos were uploaded recently! (The link for it is on the right side of this page!)
I just posted a video in the Dolenz, Jones, Boyce & Hart section of their appearance on Don Kirshner's Rock Concert from February 14, 1976. Check it out.
In June 1989, all four Monkees appeared on The Mark and Brian Show on 95.5 KLOS FM in Los Angeles, California. The band was promoting its July California appearances and the Hollywood Walk of Fame ceremony. (They also sang "Papa Gene's Blues" and "Daydream Believer" on air.) Check out the audio of the program posted in the 1989 North American/Japanese Tour section. Also posted (at the very bottom of the 1989 page) is a radio station promo ad for Monkees concerts in San Diego in July 1989.
I also posted more videos on the Live Almanac's YouTube Channel here.
Check out the 1967 tour page. The first paragraph now has a link that takes you to British newsreel footage of The Monkees arriving in England for a series of concerts at Wembley. There is also footage from the press conference they held upon their arrival.
More YouTube channel uploads and concert audio is on the way.
Check out live audience recordings of Pool It! songs from the 1987 tour here (scroll to the bottom of the page).
You can also listen to four songs from the 1989 Universal Amphitheatre show with Mike Nesmith here. It's great to listen to The Monkees' spin on "Cruisin" and "Joanne," both Nesmith solo songs.
Don't forget to visit the Live Almanac's YouTube Channel here. There are now 100 videos uploaded!

I hope to soon add new concert audio here to the website. My goal is to upload some audience recordings of the Pool It! songs that I have on cassette tape from the 1987 tour as well as a few other things like songs from the '89 Universal Amphitheatre show with Mike ("Cruisin'" and "Joanne" in particular).
