Description

Offered for sale is a Japanese pressing of The Monkees Greatest Hits including the original obi.

This 1974 LP contains more tracks than the 19762 U.S. LP with the same title.

About this copy: This copy of The Monkees Greatest Hits is an original 1974 Japanese pressing on the Bell label, featuring a gatefold cover with lyrics and color photos of the band inside.

The cover is M-, as is the obi.

This LP was issued without an insert.

The disc is VG++ on side one, with a couple of faint sleeve scuffs.  Side two is M-.

A nice copy of a surprisingly hard to find Monkees LP and the only copy we’ve ever had for sale.

Background: The Monkees were quite popular in Japan from the mid-1960s through the mid-1970s, and in 1974, Bell Records reissued the band’s entire catalog in Japan and included a number of compilation LPs that were unique to that country.

We’re rather amused to see “Peter Percival Patterson’s Pet Pig Porky” included on any Monkees album as a “hit.”

Tracks on The Monkees Greatest Hits are:

  • (Theme From) The Monkees
  • Last Train to Clarksville
  • I Wanna Be Free
  • I’m A Believer
  • (I’m Not Your) Stepping Stone
  • Shades Of Gray
  • Peter Percival Patterson’s Pet Pig Porky
  • Pleasant Valley Sunday
