The 1960's: The Monkees debut album hits stores on October 10th, 1966 so by the time this hit record landed into music stores, there was already a buzz over them. Their shows had already had huge ratings, they had a hit single, and were climbing aboard their first hit concert tour. So it's no wonder this album sold millions!

Most of the music featured on the first Monkees album had little to do with the four boys. The best studio musicians and song writers were behind this LP. This would later upset the four boys but regardless of the fact that it has been documented to death that they did not play their own instruments (which they did) this proves to be one of their best albums.

Micky Dolenz makes a huge debut as a vocalist here with several awesome songs. He first sings lead on the unforgettable "Theme From The Monkees." He also sings the #1 hit "Last Train To Clarksville.".

There are no bad songs really and if you are fan of the show you will love this! It rather is a disappointment that Peter was not really part of this album. Although he is featured on the cover he did little in the recording sessions. The other bad thing is that the Monkees do not play their instruments on this album but none the less this is probably the third or fourth best Monkees album. Definetly worth getting!
