The sudden passing of Davy Jones is certainly very sad indeed. I have really fond memories of the Monkees, when they appeared in their 58 TV shows for 2 years (from 1966-1968). Beside their irrelevant antics, what I treasured most was their singing during each show. Besides Davy Jones (lead singer), we have Michael Nesmith, Peter Tork and Micky Dolenz.

Monkees has 24 charted singles on Billboard Hot 100, with 3 Number 1 songs: Last Train To Clarksville (1966), I'm A Believer (No. 1 for 7 weeks in 1966; written by Neil Diamond), and Daydream Believer. Monkees also has 21 charted albums on Billboard 200.

Original Album Series is a new series of 5 albums of the same artist, released as one set on 5 CDs. In this case, it contains 5 volumes of Monkee's early albums, each with its mini-LP sleeves, with original front and back album covers. There are tons of bonus tracks. The price is also reasonable and is of tremendous value, while the Monkees box set on Rhino Records will cost much more.

The 5 albums by the Monkees are as follows, with chart position and year:

CD 1: The Monkees (No. 1 for 13 weeks with 5 million sold):
01 (Theme From) The Monkees
02 Saturday's Child
03 I Wanna Be Free (my all-time favourite Davy's solo)
04 Tomorrow's Gonna Be Another Day
05 Papa Gene's Blues
06 Take A Giant Step (b-side)(Colgems 1001) 1966
07 Last Train To Clarksville (Golgems 1001) 1/1966
08 This Just Doesn't Seem To Be My Day
09 Let's Dance On
10 I'll Be True To You
11 Sweet Young Thing
12 Gonna Buy Me A Dog
13 I Can't Get Her Off My Mind (Early version)
14 I Don't Think You Know Me (alternate version)
15 (Theme From) The Monkees (Early version)

CD 2: More Of The Monkees (No.

5.0 out of 5 stars Took Me Back To My Teens - Awesome! Jan. 21 2014
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
I grew up with these guys - from their posters to all of their albums and of course, the weekly TV show. It's awesome when I have a Monkee's marathon and sing along to all of these great songs. Enjoy the trip back in time - I know I do.

You can't beat the price for these five The Monkees albums. As with any collection, some songs are average, but there are some really memorable songs that remind you of the show and are instantly recognizable. I'm glad I bought it.

4.0 out of 5 stars No Problem With My Copy July 20 2010
By Victor Koshurin - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
After reading the reviews from others, I broke down and bought my own copy of this collection. I have found NO problems with my collection. The "audio drop-outs" that are mentioned in other reviews are found on the bonus tracks. There is a reason they are called "bonus tracks". These are tracks that were recorded as demos and not meant for release. Rhino included them for "historic" purposes. These are the same discs that were originally released on their own by Rhino. Going back and checking these discs with the originals I have in my collection, there is NO difference. My recent purchase of this collection plays just fine. I think the sound is MUCH better than the original Arista versions. And, yes. I have the original Arista discs.

1.0 out of 5 stars Serious Quality Issues with these CDs May 10 2010
By Robert A. Jones - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
Rhino built a reputation on creating first-quality reissues of rock 'n' roll records. Having purchased more than 200 Rhino LPs, cassettes, and CDs over the years, I have rarely been even a tiny bit disappointed with any of them...until now.

There are two quality control issues with the discs in this set. One or two tracks on each disc suffers from dropouts in the sound. My guess is that when transferring the recordings from master tapes to digital, one of the tape reels was warped, intermittently pulling the tape away from the playback head of the recorder. This problem should have been caught and corrected before any CDs were manufactured.

On "The Birds, the Bees, & the Monkees" track 16 starts with one song, then abruptly shifts to a different song. When track 16 ends this second song continues uninterrupted into track 17, where it concludes. It is not the song listed on the disc label or the slipcase for either track. Then, in the middle of track 17, another song begins (also not the one listed for this track). About 45 seconds into track 17, this song stops, and that is the end of the disc. This problem also should have been noticed and corrected before any discs were manufactured.

I have made two calls to the toll-free number listed on Rhino's web site. They seem to go to a call center in India. The people there could not help me. They suggested sending an e-mail to Dr. Rhino, which I did. 10 days later, no response at all. Today I phoned Rhino's offices in Burbank...twice. I left a voice mail message the second time. Not optimistic about getting a call back, much less a resolution to the problem.

This experience makes me reluctant to purchase any other products from Rhino Europe. Or Rhino USA, for that matter. Not a good way to treat a loyal long-time customer.

3.0 out of 5 stars Audio Quality Questionable - Follow-up Feb. 22 2011
By SRT - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
Just wanted to add to previous reviews. After reading about the questionable audio quality, I decided to purchace the Rhino box set anyway. The sound quality problem on the set I received is primarily on the 2nd disc. However, it is not just limited to the bonus tracks. Several of the original album tracks also seem to have dropouts, etc, maybe as many as 2 or 3 of the original album tracks. The dropouts are more noticeable on the bonus tracks, and I agree with one reviewer that poorer sound quality can be expected on bonus material since it was originally not intended for release. But with the problems on the original album tracks, Rhino should note the inferrior sound quality on the packageing and adjust the price accordingly (downward). I assume they used the best source they had available, so there is probably no way to get a replacement 2nd disc without the problems on the original album tracks. I will definitely be more cautious about buying Rhino items in the future.

Follow-up: I decided to take a chance and purchase a single version of the 2nd disc (the one with the worst sound quality issues) - "More of the Monkees". Received it this past week and just listened to it. It does NOT have any problems whatsoever. The track listing is identical to the disc in the box set (i.e., it includes the same bonus tracks), and the catalog number is 4509-97658-2. It is also labeled as a "Rhino" reissue dated 1994, but it is made in Germany by Warner Music Manufacturing Europe. I guess the lesson learned is that whoever at Rhino is responsible for the 'box set' has never heard of QUALITY CONTROL since this single disc version confirms there is a GOOD quality source available, even for the bonus tracks! So I would definitely recommend staying clear of the 'box set' and instead purchase the single disc version of each of the 5 releases. The one I just purchased was a used copy, for a very cheap price, in excellent condition.

4.0 out of 5 stars Get 2012 Version Jan. 15 2013
By Mike Snow - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
I purchased this set (Rhino Europe, 2010) to find that the discs have the same quality issues that have been noted by others. (Not just the bonus tracks; Disc 2 has dropouts during the main album, Disc 5 is a total disaster.) I was able to get this replaced with a newer version: (Rhino USA, 2012). The discs do not have the bonus tracks that were on the earlier version, but are free of defects.
About the music: The Monkees were the first pop group that I liked- I was the perfect age for the TV show (third grade I think). I had these records then and played them to death, until I moved on to more serious (yeah, right) rock music. 45 years later I thought it would be fun to hear them again. To my surprise, there is some great music here. The Monkees were more than just a TV show. They grew into a real group that made good records that can still be enjoyed today. So go ahead and indulge yourself in this guilty pleasure, the price is worth the 4th album by itself. Just make sure to get the 2012 version. (I would purchase direct from Amazon for this one.)

5.0 out of 5 stars Loved this CD set May 23 2011
By Lisa Calaway - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
I am very happy with the CD collection.. I was hesitate to buy it at first because I read some negative reviews.
But I also read some positive reviews so I thought I would take a chance.
I am happy to report the CDs sounded great. I don't know what the people were complaining about with fading and skipping.. This set is a wonderful collection of all the Monkees songs. I would recommend anyone to buy this.
