Análisis - Product Description :
The Monkees formed in 1966 when Micky Dolenz, Davy Jones, Mike Nesmith, and Peter Tork were picked out of a mass casting call to portray a rock band on a madcap sit-com intended to send up the zany spirit of A Hard Day's Night. The show became an Emmy- winning phenomenon and propelled the lads out of their TV roles to become bonafide, chart-topping music stars as well during the quartet's peak years, 1966-68, they amassed sales of over 16 million albums, outselling the Beatles and the Stones combined. Last year, in celebration of the 40th anniversary of that pop culture milestone, Rhino began a complete overhaul of their catalog, upgrading the group's first two classic LPs to 2CD Deluxe Edition reissues. The restoration continues with the Monkees' third and fourth LPs, HEADQUARTERS and PISCES, AQUARIUS, CAPRICORN & JONES, LTD., both #1 smashes on Billboardr's Pop Albums chart.

- Damn Right They Can Play!!

After escaping from the oily clutches of Donnie Krishner,the Monkees went into Goldstar studios in Hollywood determined to prove to the world that they were a bonafide group,and could play their own instruments.What resulted was HEADQUARTERS,a unique blend of rawness and beauty;all four Monkees thrashing it out in the studio with very few guest musicians.All group members shine on this release:Mike Nesmith provides some selfpenned classics (SUNNY GIRLFRIEND,YOU JUST MAY BE THE ONE);Davy Jones contributes his best vocals(SHADES OF GREY,EARLY MORNING BLUES AND GREENS, FORGET THAT GIRL);Mickey Dolenz pens two Monkee milestones(NO TIME,RANDY SCOUSE GIT);not only does Peter Tork give us the future closing theme(FOR PETE'S SAKE),he also shares a beautiful song with Davy(SHADES OF GREY).The playing on this album is honest and pure and it sounds as if the boys are having a great time(BAND 6,ZILCH,JERICHO,PILLOW TIME[written by Mickey's mother],PETER GUNN'S GUN).Just when you think you've heard it all,Mike chimes in with a demo(and supreme)version of his country ballad NINE TIMES BLUE.Chip Douglas does an excellent job at producing HEADQUARTERS(and even writes FORGET THAT GIRL).For 11 weeks thisalbum was in the number two position on th Billboard charts(behind SGT.PEPPER);as it fully deserved to be.If any of your friends claim that the Monkees were were just hype,play them HEADQUARTERS and then tell them to shut up!

- I wanted to write a nasty review, but it's really superb

This deluxe edition of Headquarters is so nicely done (much like the first two in this series), I honestly couldn't write anything nasty. It's been presented with love and care.

The sound quality is good for mono, but the stereo mastering seems a little bright and not as satisfying as the older CD version of Headquarters. It's very similar in sound quality to the Beatles Capitol Records releases that just came out recently. The bonus material is entertaining, as well as strong, I also loved some of the stuff I'd never heard before. The booklet is also really good, with lots of rare photos and the in depth story of the making of this album.

The overall packaging is very classy. It makes me hope that The Beatles get this kind of treatment through Apple records, or my favorite band, Deep Purple get this sort of stunning re-packaging from Rhino.

I grew up on the mono versions of the Monkees albums, all the way up to their fifth album "The Birds, The Bees & The Monkees" in April 1968, so I was really thrilled to see that mono finally made it to CD. I've always thought that the mono mixes were better overall, giving an overall impression of a heavier rock band sound. Though, I got the feeling that the Headquarters mono mix was a fold down of the stereo mix. As for the stereo mastering, it sounded brighter than the original Rhino CD's, with some added compression, and the signal might have been pushed harder than the older Rhino discs. But on the whole, a wonderful job. Let's hope the next two albums (released in mono & stereo) get this same kind of royal treatment.

Sure they seem to be milking the Monkee-cow, but when it's this strong, milk it baby. Next up, The Birds, The Bees & The Monkees?

- The "REAL" Monkees album!

I get so tired of people yelling "They don't play their own instruments!" that lately I reply with "Neither did The Temptations!" (In other words, WHO cares?) Well, they did HERE! This was when the "singing group" became a "band". And WHAT an album-- one great tune after another, with a mix of pop, rock, folk, country & psychedelia that favorably compares with RUBBER SOUL. And only ONE producer! What a concept...!

My faves here: "You Told Me" (dig that banjo!), "Shades Of Gray" , "For Pete's Sake" (never mind his voice, Peter Tork can really WRITE! ), "Sunny Girlfriend", "No Time" (ROCK & ROLL!), "Early Morning Blues And Grays" and "Randy Scouse Git" (Micky goes WILD! ). Cool CD bonus tracks include the original version of "The Girl I Knew Somewhere" with Mike singing (allowing me to finally understand some of the lyrics I couldn't get before) and the first of several versions of "Nine Times Blue"-- the song that, when played BACKWARDS, became "Listen To The Band". (No, REALLY!)

My only disappointments with HEADQUARTERS over the years were that, due to their insistence that they "do it all" on this one, a TON of great earlier material was left unissued at the time, including the original version of "You Just May be The One", which was far superior to the remake here. (But thanks to Rhino's MISSING LINKS VOL.2, now we can hear BOTH!)

- Please make the shrill stop...

This should be a really enjoyable CD given that some of the source material was included on the Headquarters Sessions a few years back. Apparently in some strange attempt to clean-up the sonics a significant amount of treble boost was applied to this CD version. The result is a shrill sounding version of Headquarters (particularly the stereo version). If you like 'ssssssssss' sounds then you'll love this.

The booklet is great however and strangely the "bonus" tracks sound better than the original mixes - probably because the bonus tracks were taken from the original 4 track tapes. Why can't that be done for the stereo version of the original album? Clean is good, sssssssssssssssss is bad.

- One of 1967's essential albums

1967 was an incredible year for pop music. Among the highlights: "Sgt. Pepper", "Pet Sounds", "The Velvet Underground and Nico", "Surrealistic Pillow", "Absolutely Free", "Album 1700", "The Doors", "Headquarters"... "Headquarters"? Yep, that's right, the Monkee's all - singing, (almost) all - playing release makes my short list of essential albums to take on a desert island. For a brief moment in their carreers, the Monkees had the power to make any album that they wanted to; they did not squander the opportunity. Hiring The Turtles' Chip Douglass to produce, the Monkees went in to make an album to please themselves only. The results still hold up 33+ years later. I can't believe that any bubblegum (a term not coined till 1968, BTW) A&R man would have let songs like 'Randy Scouse Git', 'Early Morning Blues and Greens' or 'Mr. Webster' on any album designed for teenaged consumption. My favorite track is probably 'Shades of Grey' although the banjo-driven 'You Told Me' is one of the best opening tracks any album ever had (ranks up there with 'Sgt. Pepper's Lonely Hearts Club Band' and 'Back in the USSR'). 'Band 6' is fun for the helluvit and 'Zilch' is an inspired bit of lunacy. There is not a weak track on the album - unless you are talking about the CD's bonus tracks. 'Jerico' showcases more of Mickey Dolenz's zaniness and works for me. 'The Girl I Knew Somewhere' is good but, I think that most of the bonus tracks belonged on another CD (titled, "Why Are We Releasing This Junk", maybe?). Program your CD player for the original 14 tracks and you can enjoy it the way we who loved it on vinyl heard "Headquarters" - but on better stereo systems and without the scratches and pops etc. Enjoy!
