The Monkees - Show Time

Compilation (single artist)

Just a quickie upload for you all. This was just something I put together on the fly to see if it was possible to compile a decent "lost" tenth Monkees LP out of their 1970-72 solo material. I think this probably makes more sense than doing something like this for The Beatles, which a) has already been done to death and b) is consistent with the fact that The Monkees didn't really play as a unit post 1967 anyway.

The result is no masterpiece, but for Monkees fans this should make for a nice listening experience, not too far removed from PRESENT. The hardest part was narrowing it down to just four songs from Mike, so I just went with his two hits and two catchy album tracks. The cover art is directly lifted from a 1969 tour program.

Show Time!
