Welcome back! It's been some time and the site is being completely redesigned from the ground up.
I'll be adding releases bit by bit (this is quite the work in progress) so please stop back and check for updates!

You can start by checking out the RELEASES page.

This site is meant to be a supplement (or digital point of entry) to the forthcoming book MIXING LINKS: THE MONKEES ON DISC compiled by Craig Smith and Derek Miner.

All information regarding session dates and studio musicians is courtesy of The Monkees: The Day-by-Day Story of the 60s TV Pop Sensation [2005] by Andrew Sandoval and double checked against more recent liner notes by the same author. Every work that is dedicated to The Monkees’ musical output will forever be colored by the work that Mr. Sandoval has done.

Also of note is Aaron Handy’s website The Monkees Film & TV Vault, which was essential for its in-depth analysis and trivia regarding the television series and HEAD, and we used this site to compile our lists of the tracks used in the series when alternate songs were used in syndication.

When starting this project, we needed a solid list of releases to use as a skeleton. John McCutcheon’s website Monkee45s.net provided that as well as release dates where we needed them.

Lastly, Maggie McManus deserves a huge mention for the largest trove of Monkees information in Monkee Business Fanzine, which ran from 1977 until 2002. This collection is a literal goldmine; of note specifically is Ed Reilly’s Star Collector column (as well as each issue’s news pages) for providing us with more detail about eighties releases which have helped us narrow down trickier release dates as much as possible.
