Believing In Daydreams (The Solo Monkees Collection) is a 5-CD release produced by longtime Monkees fan Chris Coyle. Strictly limited to 50 copies, the set was circulated among a small group of fans, myself included, in 2002. With artwork designed by Matt Moring, Believing in Daydreams was an attempt to highlight pre- and post-Monkees solo recordings, including alternate takes and B-sides, all taken from the best quality sources available at that time. Some of the 50 copies were sold on eBay and through a dealer at New England record shows.
More recently, Chris designed a Monkees-themed app for Windows Phone users. The app also uses the Live Almanac's blog as its news feed. You can check out the app in the Windows Phone store.
A little note on Chris: I connected with him online in 2000 or so. In 2001 I began a small project, writing brief summaries for each Monkees tour and embellishing the information with set lists and reviews. Brad Waddell at Monkees.net was kind enough to publish my work on his website that year, and Chris was a big help in collecting variations of set lists from different tours, reviewing the summaries I had written, etc. It took a decade for this website to be created, but the genesis of it all started during that time with assistance from Chris.
