Offered for sale is a still sealed stereo copy of The Monkees, the self-titled 1966 debut album by the Monkees.
About this copy: This copy of The Monkees is a 1966 U.S. stereo pressing on the Colgems label.
This is the second version of the cover, with the corrected spelling for the song “Papa Gene’s Blues” and the catalog number changed to ” COS-101 RE” from the original COS-101.
As the album is still sealed, the record is presumably mint and unplayed.
The wrap is almost completely intact except for breaks at the two upper corners. There is a bit of wear at the upper right hand corner (see photo.)
A nice copy of a record that’s quite hard to find sealed.
Background: The Monkees, released in 1966, was the first of several best-selling albums by the made-for-TV band. Backed by the Wrecking Crew, the band took the album to #1 on the U.S. charts, helped by the hit single “Last Train to Clarksville” as well as the theme song from the TV show.
The Monkees’ first album was a huge success, following on the number one single “Last Train to Clarksville.” The Monkees spent 78 weeks on the Billboard chart including an astounding 13 weeks at number one. The record wasn’t only a commercial juggernaut, it also stands as one of the great debuts of all time, and while the record and the group have faced criticism from rock purists through the ages, it stands the test of time perfectly well, sounding as alive and as much fun 40 years later.
