This ad for the first three albums released by Michael Nesmith and The First National Band (Magnetic South, Loose Salute, and Nevada Fighter) originally appeared in the July 12, 1971 issue of Billboard. It was reprinted in the March 1991 issue of Monkee Business Fanzine as seen below.
Thanks to Jeff Gehringer for submitting this September 1986 trade ad to the Live Almanac!
This ad for the Pisces, Aquarius, Capricorn & Jones Ltd. album was published in the November 25, 1967 issue of Cashbox, and is courtesy of Monkee45s.net.
How about these great pieces from the early 1970s advertising the works of Michael Nesmith and The First National Band?! They come courtesy of our friends at the Michael Nesmith Fan Page on Facebook.
Here's an advertisement for the first ever Monkees greatest hits album that appeared in Go in July 1969. Thanks to Al Bigley for the submission!
This ad was submitted to the Live Almanac, and after checking with JD at Monkee45s.net, he thinks it could be from Record World magazine circa late February to March 1969 (but both of us aren't 100% sure). It also appeared in the packaging of the Instant Replay deluxe edition.
Here's something I haven't had a chance to scan but Troy submitted it and beat me to the punch - a 1987 Rhino Records promotional bill announcing the release of Live 1967 and Missing Links. I recall seeing this copied into fan club newsletters at the time...and how much of a surprise it was to find these LPs at the local record store. Ahh, the pre-internet era!
Note the different early running order for tracks on the Missing Links LP.
Thanks, Troy, for submitting this to the Live Almanac.
Just to clarify yesterday's blog post, I am assuming that the reason for the one week delay for the Instant Replay box could be due to the fact that Andrew Sandoval acquired superior masters for some of the 33 1/3 tracks, but again, it's just speculation based on his post on Facebook. There is still no official email from Rhino to those who pre-ordered the set announcing a delay.
Today's Instant Replay-themed update features both sides of the picture sleeve for the only single released from the album, "Tear Drop City"/"A Man Without a Dream":
Check out this rare ad for the "Tear Drop City" single from England's New Musical Express:
Finally, this picture is courtesy of Rhino's Monkees Facebook page and features the inside layout of the upcoming Instant Replay box set (which was also the cover of the 1969 tour program):
The first ad below was published in the February 15 and 22, 1969 issues of Billboard and the second ad in the March 1, 1969 issue. Thanks to Monkee45s for the uploads!
And don't forget to pre-order the Instant Replay deluxe edition from Rhino.
