The Monkees Blu-ray Has Been Postponed Again

Remember back in January when it was just two weeks until the release date of the long-awaited Monkees Complete Series Blu-ray and Rhino announced that it was going to be delayed by three months because a few pieces of bonus content were being added? Well, we're apparently in reruns, because Rhino has once again announced a long delay just two weeks before the April release date. The wait is not quite as long as the last one; the set has been postponed for two months this time with the new date being June 27.

I can understand Rhino's desire to make this set as complete as it can possibly be, and "the very first live performance from The Monkees ... for a KHJ radio promotional event" and "a fully restored version of the original unaired pilot from the original 35mm negative" sound decent (though I'd personally prefer alternate song tracks for every episode that had one in reruns rather than a paltry ten episodes), this method of waiting to announce the delay just two weeks before the previously announced release date is pretty weak.
