Do you remember where you were in 1966? Probably watching Davy, Micky, Mike and Peter on television.
The Monkees conquered the airwaves with their spoofy humor and groovy sounds. They were America's Fab Four.
They rapidly rose to a crescendo of popularity that rivaled Beatlemania. The Monkees brought boundless wit,
creativity and high spirits to both TV and the Top 40 in 1966. At the height of their popularity, recordings by The
Monkees outsold those of The Beatles and The Rolling Stones combined. The group shattered sales records
previously set by the likes of Elvis Presley and The Beatles. They amassed a dozen Top 40 hits. Between September, 1966, and December, 1967, "Last Train To Clarksville," "I'm A Believer" and "Daydream Believer" collectively occupied the top position for 12 weeks. The Monkees brought their fair share of musical innovation and integrity to rock n' roll. Their first two albums, The Monkees and More Of The Monkees, were filled with bright, fresh-faced pop songs, bristling with tuneful hooks and melodies. Those early records were perfect, hummable radio fare for those halcyon times, and they remain an undiminished delight more than 30 years later.You can see and appreciate them for what they are: an exemplary pop band responsible for some of the most tuneful, luminescent and lasting records of the rock n' roll era.
