Análisis - Product Description :
HEADQUARTERS, the Monkees' third album and third consecutive LP to hit #1 was originally released in May 1967 and featured production by Chip Douglas, allowing the band greater creative control. Introduced stand-outs including the Top 40 Michael Nesmith-penned hit The Girl I Knew Somewhere, You Just May Be The One, and Randy Scouse Git. Plus, Peter Tork's For Pete's Sake, later used as The Monkees TV show's closing theme. Among the 21 bonus tracks are rare, previously unreleased stereo remixes including You Can't Tie A Mustang Down, If I Learn To Play The Violin, and the Neil Diamond-composed A Little Bit Me, A Little Bit You. Bonus rarities also include demo versions of Nine Times Blue, Midnight Train, and Pillow Time and the first recorded version of The Girl I Knew Somewhere. 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.

- As the years go by, people changing every day.

This is generally considered to be the Monkees best album, although some would give that honor to

, which has the distinction of having the majority of the instruments played by the Monkees themselves. The Monkees didn't contribute as much instrumentally to this album, although Tork and Nesmith did play on most of the tracks, with Dolenz and Jones lending a hand to several of them. As for the songs, there are several great ones here, with no real bad ones. Heck, I like 'em all! This "deluxe edition" features both the mono and stereo versions of the album, with different bonus track added to each album. With the exception of "Goin' Down", "Riu Chiu" and a brief "Special Announcement", the bonus track are alternate mixes of songs from the album. Whether you need to have both the mono and stereo albums and several alternate mixes probably depends on how much you like the Monkees. F.Y.I., here is how the alternate mixes differ from the "regular" versions:

Disc 1

"Salesman" - has monologue at the end, runs half a minute longer

"She Hangs Out" - no horns, runs half a minute longer

"Love Is Only Sleeping" - different vocals

"What Am I Doing Hangin' 'Round?" - different vocals, runs a few seconds longer

"Star Collector" - no Moog synthesizer, runs half a minute longer

Disc 2

"Salesman" - has monologue at the end, fades out earlier than the alternate mix on disc 1

"Cuddly Toy" - echoing effect at the end goes on about half a minute longer

"The Door Into Summer" - different vocals

"Daily Nightly" - no Moog synthesizer

"Star Collector" - different Moog synthesizer part, runs half a minute longer

- Tied with Headquarters as their best album

On several songs, The Monkees almost achieve Beatledom.

I can give no higher compliment.

The Monkees were a very good band who, because of their perceived "fakeness", are seriously underrated and overlooked. Naysayers should give this album a listen.

If you're a Monkees fan, you'll love it. If you're not a Monkees fan, give it a chance.

- Unprofessional production of a great CD....

I am a Monkees Fan from childhood. This CD and Headquarters are by far their best ever, because they played the instruments and had control over the creativity. BUT, the people that produced and mixed the Deluxe Edition of this and Headquarters missed the mark. It sounds a bit rushed and compressed. If they cared about the Monkees, the sound or putting out a decent product they ruined it by making them sound compressed and rushed. I am sure there are others out there that agree and others, myself included, who could have and would have done better, because I am a fan first and foremost wouldn't matter. Not as much as the integrity, which I can't find in the rush job here and on Headquarters. I am disappointed that it is only a halfway decent job at best, NOT a great job.

- Monkees Revisited!

This was a great album on it's release, and a better one now! It's a photograph of the time. All the original tracks are here, the best ones usually by Mike.

"What Am I Doing Hanging 'Round" is a particular favorite. But, the real find (and you can SEE it on YouTube) is the wonderful acappella version of

"Rui Chiu", a LAtin Christmas hymn the boys did for their Christmas show one year. Singing in impeccable 4 part harmony, they truly prove they were

true musicians and not some pop-art, pop-up band. Bravo!

- Here They Come..Better Then EVER!!

I barely remembered their TV show when it first came in 1966, I was only four at the time, then I've became a HUGE fan of The Monkees since 1975 (after I started watching there shows on syndicated channels). None of there LP's existed at the time. Then Arista (bless them) released their Greatest Hits collection in 1976. A few years later, imported LP's from Japan started to come thru my local record shop. I bought their Debut thru Birds, Bees & Monkees. The sound was good, but their was not enough base sound to it. Then...1994, Rhino gave The Monkees the respect they deserve, releasing ALL their albums on CD, each in a nice special casing, liner notes AND unissued bonus tracks. Too Bad The Beatles didn't get this treatment( way over due ). In 2006 and 2007, Rhino did it again EVEN BETTER!! I have the first (and best) four of their Deluxe Editions-more bonus tracks, a lot more liner notes, PLUS the Sound Quality of both Mono & Stereo are superior to anything released before. I only hope the will do the same with the five original remaining CD's "The Birds, The Bees and The Monkees" thru "Changes". We Can Only Hope...
