Description

Offered for sale is an original Japanese pressing of Headquarters by the Monkees, including a Japan-only gatefold cover, poster, and the original obi.

About this copy: This copy of Headquarters is a 1967 Japanese pressing on the Victor label.

The gatefold cover is VG++ with slight edge wear.  The obi is VG++ with no tears, but with a big of discoloration from age.

The poster is M- and is still attached to the cover.  This LP was issued without an insert.

The disc is VG.  It appears to be VG+ with a couple of light marks on each side, but there are many, many spindle marks on the labels and it plays with some noise, so we’ll call it VG.

A nice copy of a very rare Monkees album that is hard to find complete, as the poster and obi are usually missing.

Background: Released in May, 1967, Headquarters was the third album by the Monkees, and the only album on which they played all of their instruments.

The album reached #1 on the U.S. album charts and #2 on the UK charts.

Allmusic.com gave Headquarters a 4 1/2 star review:

 With the help of producer Chip Douglas, the band spent some time learning how to be a band (as documented on the Headquarters Sessions box set) and set about recording what turned out to be a dynamic, exciting, and impressive album. … Headquarters doesn’t show the band to be musical geniuses, but it did prove they were legitimate musicians with enough brains, heart, and soul as anyone else claiming to be a real band in 1967. [Rhino’s 1995 reissue adds six previously unissued tracks recorded during the Headquarters sessions including an early take of the single “The Girl I Knew Somewhere” and rare demos “Nine Times Blue” and “Pillow Time.”]
