Album of the Day
THE MONKEES 50
The Monkees have amassed a dozen Top 40 hits - including a trio of tunes that soared to #1 - and sales of their LPs were more phenomenal still, with 16 million albums and 7.5 million singles sold in a mere 2 1/2 years. In celebration of the band's golden anniversary two years ago, Rhino released THE MONKEES 50, a three-CD set packed with 50 unforgettable songs from the band’s historic career. Along with classic chart-toppers “Last Train To Clarksville,” “I’m A Believer” and “Daydream Believer,” and such Top 40 singles as “(I’m Not Your) Steppin’ Stone” and “Valleri,” the collection delves even deeper into the band’s rich catalog to include fan favorites like “She,” “Mary, Mary” and “Papa Gene’s Blues.” The group returned during the MTV era (receiving a star on the Hollywood Walk Of Fame on this day in 1989) and THE MONKEES 50 also features comeback tracks "That Was Then, This Is Now" and "Anytime, Anyplace, Anywhere" as well as songs from their latest album, GOOD TIMES!
