Editorial Reviews

Neil Sedaka, Neil Diamond and Goffin/King helped the Monkees' second LP match the amazing success of their debut. This one reached #1 in '67 on the shoulders of the smash I'm a Believer ; the hit (I'm Not Your) Steppin' Stone ; the classics She; Mary, Mary , and more!

5.0 out of 5 stars One Holy Grail Found! October 21, 2006
By Davidp.
Format:Audio CD
Previous reviewers have gone into great detail about the care and respect put into these first two deluxe reissues, but one thing I was very excited about on this particular release I haven't seen mentioned: The mono mix of this album contains the longer mix of "(I'm Not Your) Stepping Stone".

I own a copy of the original vinyl mono release of this album, and have been hoping for years that Rhino would release this intriguing variation of "Stepping Stone". It's similar to the mono single mix ( previously released on the Rhino greatest hits CD ) with deleted background vocals, but the ending of the song is longer before the final fade-out. This version was heard twice on the television series (in the episodes "Monkees A La Carte", and "The Case Of The Missing Monkee") and only was released on the mono album. I'm thrilled to finally have it on CD!

5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent! August 15, 2006
Format:Audio CD
THIS is the way reissues should be handled. Excellent sound on stereo mixes. Excellent sound on mono mixes. Excellent packaging. Excellent liner notes. Excellent pictures. Excellent bonus tracks. Can you imagine the Beatles getting the royal treatment like this? If you are a Monkees fan, snatch up these new deluxe editions right away!

4.0 out of 5 stars An Enjoyable Hodgepodge March 17, 2000
Format:Audio CD
Without Boyce and Hart, producers of the first album, overseeing this second Monkees album, the quality was erratic. Colgems, the Monkees' record label, took what seems like a random scoop of Monkees recordings made with different producers and different styles, and quickly stitched together this January 1967 release, giving the overall impression of a consumer product, rather than a well-thought-out album. As a result, alongside top notch tunes like the smash `I'm A Believer,' the proto-punk `I'm Not Your Stepping Stone' (which, in less than three minutes, earned the Monkees lifetime respect from garage rock groups) the hard-rocking `She,' the pleasantly subdued `Sometime In The Morning,' the goofy but endearing `Your Auntie Grizelda,' and Mike Nesmith's classic `Mary Mary,' were some half-decent picks like `Hold On Girl' and `Laugh' (which suffers from lame lyrics.) And Monkees fans generally agree that `The Day We Fall In Love,' a schmaltzy instrumental backing to Davy whispering sweet nothings in your ear, should never have happened.
The bonus tracks are quite interesting. `I Don't Think You Know Me' (a song they did not release in the sixties, but have seen FOUR versions of plucked from their archives since 1987) is solid bubblegum, but Peter Tork's shaky lead vocals, and the equally shaky backing vocals from his three mates, will make you smile and root for them. An alternate mix of `Look Out (Here Comes Tomorrow)' contains a thankfully rejected idea that will make you laugh (if only in a `What were they thinking?' style.) And it's neat to hear another pass at `I'm A Believer.'
So, in short, not quite as strong as their debut album, but well worth a listen.

4.0 out of 5 stars Monkees Best....and Worst October 5, 2006
Format:Audio CD
"More of the Monkees" hit the pop charts like a shot across the bow of everything that seemed `cool'. Teenagers destined to become hippies hated the band, the TV show, and everything that the Monkees represented, feigning a preference for the more `sophisticated' sounds of the Lovin' Spoonful and Buffalo Springfield. Little did they know that either of these bands would have sold their credibility for a piece of the Monkees superstardom; in point of fact, the Lovin' Spoonful almost were the Monkees but were rejected for a lack of personality, while Stephen Stills (of the Buffalo Springfield) got axed for the gap between his front teeth. "More of the Monkees" shipped with pre-orders of 1.5 million copies and then continued to sell in significant quantities, so nay-sayers who figured the band as one-hit wonders had to quickly reformulate their perspective.

Stylistically speaking. "More of the Monkees" duplicates the layout of their first album, but with exaggerated characteristics. The good bits are much better, while the bad bits are almost unbearable. Neil Diamond and the team of Carole King and Gerry Goffin provide some of the best songs of their careers ("I'm a Believer" and "Sometime in the Morning", respectively). Monkee Mike Nesmith proves that he is exceptionally qualified to write his own material for the band, too. "Mary Mary" and "The Kind of Girl I Could Love" are album highlights, with a countrified, rocking edge that must have put some doubt in the minds of those who claimed that the bandmembers could not play their own instruments.

5.0 out of 5 stars We want More of the Monkees September 23, 2006
Format:Audio CD
More of the Monkees, the Monkees' all-time best selling album and the most contentious release for the band itself, is a definite purchase for a Monkees' fan. If you like this album and you do not have it, buy it again with all the mono release and outtakes! Rhino as usual sells wonderful compliations with extensive liner notes.

Andrew Sandoval and others at the Rhino staff have put a lot of work into these reissues. The last time the original 9 Monkees albums were remastered and released was in 1994 and 1995. This time around, Rhino will release the first 8 albums as more session tapes and information has been found in the past decade.

This set is definitely an upgrade: double disc set, better sound, better packaging, and more extensive liner notes.

The liner notes and package itself show lots of rare photographs; you can see some of the photos used for this release online at the newly launched Rhino Monkees' website: [...]

Musical highlights: I want to mention the songs which were brought out of the can and used for the later Monkees albums in 1969 as the group's popularity was waning. Most interesting is the release of "Teardrop City" at its original recorded speed. This track was sped up a bit (maybe 8%?) for its release in 1969. "Ladies Aid Society" - this original mono outtake is more fun than the original release in 1969. You hear more of Micky clowning around at the end, with a canned audience responding to him. It is simply delightful.

Micky's lead on (I Prithee) Do not Ask For love" is a wonderful track that Donnie Kirshner shamefully ignored. As we know, this song was unreleased for 2 decades until the Missing Links series was released by Rhino. Notably, on the Monkees Deluxe Set, we have a version of "Prithee" with Davy singing lead.
