How does it compare to the artist's other releases

"The Monkees Listen To The Band"

This remains probably my favourite box-set of all time. This was a real godsend upon release in 1991, as at the time hardly any of the Monkees records were still on catalogue. The package contains four CD's, containing all of the Monkees hit singles, their best-known album tracks, and a smattering of previously unreleased material.

Being merely a six-year old fan of the Monkees TV show in the 60's, I wasn't overly concerned with the critics obsession with the fact that the Monkees didn't play on their records. (As I got older I found out that this wasn't necessarily always the case). Nevertheless, despite the myriad of changes that have occured within my musical tastes since then, I've always retained a deep love of their music, particularly tracks like Stepping Stone, Words, The Girl I Knew Somewhere, Circle Sky and Pleasant Valley Sunday, all of which are present on this box-set in superb quality.

    Hi Welcome to Ciao I think a little more information would have been helpful.Perhaps some of the younger members will not even know who the Monkees are, so a little background names etc would be useful. Cheers Elspeth
