In September 1966, Micky Dolenz, Davy Jones, Michael Nesmith and Peter Tork debuted as The Monkees on NBCs new Fall season lineup of shows. Overnight success would happen in the form of a smash TV show, a #1 debut album The Monkees and a #1 hit single Last Train To Clarksville. The Monkees were now the face of young people everywhere and they were here to stay...for 50 years going strong!
Friday Music is no stranger to the amazing recording career of The Monkees. As a celebration of their 5 decades of great music and memories, Friday Music announces the first time audiophile vinyl release of The Monkees Live 1967/ 50th Anniversary Edition. Mastered impeccably for the first time for audiophile vinyl from the original Colgems Records tapes by Joe Reagoso, this super limited edition recording now features four tracks only released for a short time on the 1986 CD release.
The LP is also pressed, in honor of their 50th Anniversary, on stunning translucent gold vinyl, as well as featuring a first time gatefold LP cover, further enhancing your listening enjoyment.
Featuring songs from their first 3 multi-platinum albums The Monkees, More Of The Monkees, and Headquarters, Live 1967 was recorded from several shows throughout Washington and Oregon, during the amazing tour which was fortunately captured for this rare live album.
With stunning live renditions of Last Train To Clarksville, I Wanna Be Free and other #1 smashes like Im A Believer and Steppin' Stone, Live 1967 also features a good overview of later works from Headquarters like Forget That Girl and You Just May Be The One, plus the rare B-side hit The Girl I Knew Somewhere. This great live album is also enhanced with 4 big bonus tracks only found on the long out of print CD version, including Peter Torks classic Cripple Creek.
