Triple-Disc Deluxe Edition of 'The Monkees' Coming Soon

Having gotten caught up on the second half of The Monkees' career with triple-disc deluxe editions of every album from The Birds, The Bees, & The Monkees through The Monkees Present (not surprisingly, there hasn't been much demand for a deluxe edition of Changes), Rhino Records are winding back to the very beginning. On November 11, the company is releasing a super deluxe edition of the group's debut album. The format will change a bit from the previous deluxe editions with both the original mono and stereo mixes of The Monkees being grouped on a single CD; a second disc of sessions, outtakes, and remixes; and a third one devoted to the pre-Monkees solo work of Davy Jones and Mike Nesmith, plus some bonus demos of "I Wanna Be Free". 

Presumably, this means we might be able to expect super-deluxe editions of More of The Monkees and Pisces, Aquarius, Capricorn, and Jones, LTD. over the next few years. Headquarters was already dealt with on Rhino Handmade's The Headquarters Sessions in 2000, but perhaps that out-of-print set will get re-released...or we could get an all-new Headquarters Super Deluxe Edition. Time will tell...

For now The Monkees (Super Deluxe Edition) is available to pre-order now from The Monkees Official Store here.

And now, the track list:
