For years, Monkees fans have clamored for compilations highlighting the solo efforts of Micky, Davy, Michael, and Peter. Outside the readily available works of Michael Nesmith, and the reissue of Davy's albums from 1965 and 1971, little else can be found on the marketplace.
But now, Micky's early 1970s singles originally released on the MGM label are being collected for the first time ever. You can order Micky Dolenz: The MGM Singles Collection, a vinyl LP set, on Amazon UK and via Amazon in the United States. It's also available through online retailer Ernie B's, at a much better price. (A digital release is planned for a later date.)
A big thanks goes to both Iain Lee and Glenn Gretlund, co-producers of the MGM Singles Collection, for single-handedly making this project become a reality. To top off everything, the set features rare and previously unseen photographs from iconic rock and Monkees photographer, Henry Diltz.
Iain was kind enough to share with me the expertly crafted liner notes, written by Mark Kleiner Biggar, which are highly informative. And don't forget, Iain conducted an exclusive interview with Micky that appears in the gatefold.
In the meantime, check out this footage from Iain, who recently posted a video unveiling the package.
