Friday Music's website is now displaying a promotional piece for their Justus CD/DVD deluxe edition.
"Friday Music is once again very honored to announce the continuation of The Monkees Friday Music Deluxe Edition Series with the first time CD & DVD release of their 1996 masterwork Justus. Mastered by Joe Reagoso (The Monkees/Elvis Presley/Brian Wilson) from the original analog Rhino Records tapes at Friday Music Studios, this legendary release is also for a very short time being offered with a limited edition first time ever DVD of the super rare Rhino Home Video."
There is no firm date listed for its release, but the site allows you to add it to your shopping cart and purchase it. Nothing alerts you that it isn't ready for shipping right now, so either it is available or one can assume it will be shipping shortly. (I did not complete the order so I'm not sure of any steps beyond the process of adding it to your cart. Please contact me if you purchased it and have more details.) For what it's worth, Amazon.com shows no listing for the deluxe edition as of this blog post.
According to their website, the Justus package will include "a colorful CD folder, Monkees memorabilia, interesting liner notes and new interview commentary from Micky Dolenz."
I'll post more details, including a firm release date, once they are available.
UPDATE 4/3/13: Friday Music's Facebook page lists a May 28, 2013 release date for their Justus deluxe CD/DVD package.
