From Publishers Weekly
Music historian Sandoval obsessively covers concerts, recordings and TV in pursuit of all Monkees trivia. Beginning with the 1942–1945 births of the quartet members (Peter Tork, Michael Nesmith, Micky Dolenz and Davy Jones), Sandoval traces their solo careers until the four were brought together in 1966 for NBC's The Monkees TV series, followed by hit albums through the late '60s. With a complete "Songography," 135 illustrations, a TV episode guide, lengthy interview quotes and exhaustive research through thousands of press clippings, Sandoval and designer Paul Cooper deliver a strong package, including captivating notes on Jack Nicholson's soundtrack work for the 1968 Monkees movie, Head, which was made the year before Nicholson gained recognition as an actor in Easy Rider. Unfortunately, the book has many speculative passages and an awkward use of present and future tense, resulting in such strained sentences as "No tapes will survive from this date, and it is quite possible that no takes are made today. Peter will return to the song in January." All the same, devoted Monkees fans will be pleased. (July)

The lesson, Monkee fans? Grab it while you can. You know who you are.
Great job. Amazing book.
The case has been made by Andrew Sandoval for die hard Monkees fans that have had an unfulfilled appetite for a day by day playback into Monkees history. Even the casual Monkees admirer will appreciate the history, the pictures, the mania.
The Monkees were a band of four musician/actors created by Screen Gems. Fed up with the bubblegum pop sound generated by their producers on "The Monkees" and "More Of The Monkees" albums, the band gained creative control of their music and the rest is history.
This book is that history.
If you want to know answers to such questions as:
(1)Which song featured what Monkee on which instrument and where was that song recorded on what day in which studio? (2)Where did The Monkees perform live on which date and what was the actual gross earning/attendance for which concert? (3)Where did The Monkees perform as a trio in 1969 after Peter Tork left and on which television show or shows did they make live guest appearances on?
Then buy this book.
