At the 2014 Monkees convention in New Jersey this past winter, Monkees archivist Andrew Sandoval announced the release of a 3-CD super deluxe edition of The Monkees (the group's debut album) with a scheduled street date of November 2014. No further information has surfaced since that time.
This weekend, however, Davey Meredith submitted an email to the Live Almanac that came from Artist Arena, the agency that handled ticket pre-sales for the 2014 Monkees spring tour. Part of the pre-sale package was a copy of the upcoming Rhino Handmade box set. A friend of Davey's contacted Artist Arena to check the status of the order, and this is the reply that was received:
To date, no general pre-orders have been made available by Rhino Handmade for the super deluxe edition. Keep checking back with the Live Almanac for any new information!
