Description

Offered for sale is an original Japanese pressing of Davy Jones DeLuxe by Davy Jones, including the original obi.

This 1969 Japanese LP is the same album as the 1965 U.S. LP David Jones with sides one and two reversed.

About this copy: This copy of Davy Jones DeLuxe is a 1969 Japanese pressing on the Pye label.  While the album was issued in the U.S. in 1965, this is the original Japanese release.

The gatefold cover is VG++ with slight foxing.  The obi is VG+ with a bit of foxing and a small 1/2 cm tear at the top edge.  The cover has six pages of lyrics, liner notes, and photos.

This LP was issued without an insert.

The disc is VG+ with single light scratch on side one through one track and two similar marks on side two.  It’s a clean disc that plays well.

A nice copy of a rare Monkees-related LP.

Background: Released in 1965 before he joined the Monkees, David Jones was the first album by Davy Jones.

The album reached #185 on the U.S. album charts.  The first single, “What Are We Going to Do?” reached #93 on the U.S. singles chart.

Allmusic.com gave David Jones this review:

As fans of the Monkees know, Davy Jones had a career prior to being cast in the television series…. Here he attempts to sing pop hits. … The only indication that it was recorded in the mid-’60s is the album highlight, his cover of Dylan’s “It Ain’t Me Babe.” Here the song becomes an odd combination of lounge/folk/pop and Broadway. Fans and collectors would want this in their collections, but others would find little if anything of interest.
