Banana Colored “The Monkees” – Web Exclusive Version from Run Out Groove

Okay, a quick update to last weeks Monkees blog post.

I had actually ordered a Web exclusive version of “The Monkees” (for review of this new set see previous post) directly from Run Out Groove and lo and behold it finally arrived today.

As you can see from the photos above this version, which could only be purchased from the Run Out Groove Website (, came pressed on spiffy looking yellow vinyl for the first 1000 orders received. As luck would have it I was one of the first 1000 and today that groovy yellow vinyl version is now in my hot little hands.

All of the music and packaging is the same except for the vinyl color (I know, I know collector’s are a weird breed!).

And today is fitting day to receive this yellow pressing as the Run Out Groove website just this afternoon began to take pre-orders for their next Monkees project – a 2 LP version of “More of the Monkees”. The early orders for that disc will come in a green color and I’m sure will go fast.

To pre-order click here:

If this pressing of “The Monkees” is any indication than the upcoming two disc pressing of “More of the Monkees” should be a thing of beauty and be the definitive sounding version of that album as well as its accompanying bonus tracks.

Well, that’s all for now. Just a quick update on the yellow vinyl version. Stay tuned for more posts soon.

Until next time be well and I hope you’re enjoying your summer wherever you are!
