In the early '90s, I was in high school and beginning college. Becoming a fan in '86 after the initial MTV marathon of the TV show, my Monkees fandom was at a lull in 1991 when the Listen to the Band box set was released by Rhino Records to commemorate the group's 25th Anniversary. In 1995, after a couple of years of staring at the box in my nearby record shops, I took the plunge and purchased the set, which featured a lot of Monkees songs that (in 1991) had yet to be issued on compact disc. It remains to this day one of my favorite Monkees releases from Rhino.
