The Monkees experienced a resurgence in Japan in the early 1980s. As a result, three of The Monkees (Micky, Davy, and Peter) toured the country as solo acts in 1981 and 1982. The demand for The Monkees was so high that the television series was aired daily and original albums were re-released. The 1976 Dolenz, Jones, Boyce & Hart album was also reissued, and here, courtesy of the Live Almanac's YouTube channel, you can see a commercial advertising it. (In the mid-1970s, former Monkees Dolenz and Jones teamed up with original Monkees tunesmiths Boyce & Hart to tour the world, record an album, and film a television special.)
