The Monkees Pool It! 180g LP (Blue Vinyl)
180g Audiophile BLUE Vinyl Mastered by Friday Music's Joe Reagoso From Original Rhino Records Tapes!
After the 1970 release of Changes (FRMLP1190), The Monkees disbanded quietly
after one of the most incredible recording and television careers ever imagined.
In 1986, it was announced that The Monkees were coming back! To add even more
excitement to the welcomed news, MTV aired a marathon of all The Monkees
television shows. In record time, new and reissued recordings, airplay, TV and
retail support, and of course one of the most successful concert tours of all
time, lasting over three years, truly brought the band back into the forefront
of modern pop and rock music history.
During their whirlwind 1987 concert season, Micky Dolenz, Davy Jones and Peter
Tork released their first studio album in over sixteen years called Pool It!.
The 1980’s pop/rock infused album not only did good business at radio and
retail, but it was also a home run with the newly created video channels like
Nickelodeon which voted the first single Heart And Soul number one on their show
Nick Rocks, which also featured one of Micky Dolenz’s finest vocal deliveries in
A fantastic second single soon followed with Ian Hunter’s Every Step Of The Way
featuring the late great Davy Jones. Davy’s supercharged performance was
exceptional on this tune which was also turned into an equally hip video during
their promotion and tour around this fantastic new album.
Another rock masterpiece can be visited once again with Midnight. With its
Clapton-like guitar fills, a fine rock lyric, and a classic Micky Dolenz doing
his R&B/rock vibe seamlessly, the track was truly another highlight on this fine
Pool It! was undeniably a treasure trove of new music from these superstars. It
brought back the aura and feel of a newly reformed spirit of the '60s, which was
truly needed during an era of youth-oriented one hit wonders and video star
domination. It has been a sorely missed Monkees masterwork in the physical
domain now for many years...that is until now.
