The Monkees / Classic Album Collection / final artwork

classic_album

Two and a half weeks ahead of release, here’s the final artwork (and full track listing) for the 10CD The Monkees Classic Album Collection box set.

As mentioned previously, this will feature the band’s nine original studio albums: The Monkees; More of the Monkees; Headquarters; Pieces, Aquarius, Capricorn & Jones Ltd .; The Birds, The Bees & the Monkees; Head; Instant Replay; Present and Changes. A tenth bonus disc of singles/rarities completes the set.

The track listing below also clarifies some of the remastering question marks. Changes (disc 9) is the new 2015 mastering, while other discs use masterings from 2007.

The Monkees Complete Albums box will be issued by Rhino on 22 January 2016.

  1. John says:

    No expense spared with the cover design I see.

  2. Sylent Syd says:

    Not a bad price for a 10-disc set!

    I’m assuming there’s no booklet in the package?

  3. Mike says:

    50Years on,500 reissues later, if anyone hasn’t got these albums/ songs by now then I fail too see who will actually buy it,nice price / rubbish cover or not unless,Mike Nesmith ie ” Monkee ” hand delivers and signs every cd.then not for me.

  4. hurple says:

    (sigh) At this price, I’ll get it so I can have the most recent remasters sitting nice and neat on my CD shelf beside the 1990’s Rhino’s. And, so won’t have to go digging through my boxset storage cabinet to drag out out the Deluxe Editions when I want to hear those newest masterings… And, disc 10 is nice (where are the other 1986 recordings? Would be nice to have those too.)

    Oh well, I guess I’m one of those suckers that’s born every minute…

  5. Scott says:

    I only have the first five albums, so I may buy this for the other four if I can pick it up for under $50. The packaging will be the final determiner for me (mini album artwork, etc.). There is still no US pre-order for some reason.

  6. Mij says:

    Scott – in the US it’s a “Start Your Ear Off Right” exclusive release so won’t be available through Amazon or other online retailers – only via “participating brick and mortar retail outlets”.

  7. Mikko Suhonen says:

    I don’t have a single Monkees album, so if this set is deemed technically ok, it might be the set for me. I’m just waiting for some images of the content, how faithfull they have been to the original releases.

  8. dennis f. says:

    in a similar vein, i’d like to see a box set of the partridge family… get on the bus and get groovy, baby… LOL… (no, i’m serious… about the box set, not the bus and groovy part… but once you listen to a PF album, you can’t help but feel like getting on a psychedelically paintedbus and getting groovy…)

  9. These come with no booklet, it is bare bones with cd’s and original mini covers that is all!!
