180g Audiophile YELLOW Vinyl Mastered by Friday Music's Joe Reagoso From Original Colgems Records Tapes!

After the success of their top thirty Instant Replay album (FRMLP1130), The Monkees were soon back in the recording studio thanks to the Saturday morning airings of their classic Monkees television show on CBS in 1969. These critically acclaimed shows were a launching pad for a plethora of new songs that weren’t originally used in the programs and helped launch their superstar status to a whole new legion of fans, while maintaining their millions of followers worldwide.

Originally released in 1969, The Monkees Present was the eighth hit album from the The Monkees on Colgems Records. As a more introspective session from the band, each Monkee gets a solid opportunity to present their own individual aura in the band format, making this a highly memorable effort.

The Monkees Present featured two amazing hit singles from Mike Nesmith with Listen To The Band, featuring the rare original LP mix, and Good Clean Fun. Always the innovator, Nesmith’s compositions here truly predate the southern California country-rock sound by several years, featuring some of Nashville’s finest musicians of the sixties.

The late great Davy Jones outdoes himself with the brilliant soulful balladry of If I Knew. He continues the groove with his hip café leaning sounds of French Song, plus a look to his past Monkees affiliation with Boyce and Hart’s rocker Looking For The Good Times, originally recorded during their More Of The Monkees sessions.

Micky Dolenz resonates his much emulated talents with incredible performances on the album opener Little Girl. This tune features the stunning guitar work of Louie Shelton, who did the amazing speed guitar licks on their hit Valeri. Dolenz also hit the pop music charts with his protest single Mommy and Daddy which is also included in this masterwork. Plus a tender lullaby Pillow Time written by his mom closes out this wonderful twelve song classic from these legendary superstars.

Friday Music is honored and proud to continue their extensive Monkees 180 Gram Audiophile Vinyl Series with their classic The Monkees Present, for the first time on limited edition 180 Gram translucent yellow vinyl.
