My Favorite Albums – More of the Monkees – The Monkees

Another of my favorite albums is More of the Monkees. Now I know you’re all saying why didn’t I pick, the first album or Headquarters or Pisces, Aquarius, Capricorn & Jones Ltd. or The Birds, The Bees, and The Monkees or Head which are all incredible and I love very much. Well, this was the first Monkees album that I owned.

I got the singles as they were released, but the LP I received as birthday or Christmas presents and somehow got this 1967 2nd Monkees record first! It is a great Album with songs like She, Your Auntie Grizelda, Look Out (Here Comes Tomorrow), I’m A Believer and (I’m Not Your) Steppin’ Stone. The TV show was airing then and this gave me a way to have the Monkees all the time instead of just 30 minutes a week!

More of the Monkees was released January 9, 1967 on Colgems label #102. It replaced the Monkees first album “The Monkees” on the Billboard Top 200 chart and remained number 1 for 18 weeks, the most of any Monkees album. It was also number 1 in the U.K. and has been certified quintuple platinum by the RIAA .
