Michael Nesmith and The Second National Band..."Wax Minute" from Tantamount to Treason. Enjoy.
Check out four new photos in the 1969 tour gallery including a cool ad for the first show of the '69 tour in Vancouver. Take a look at the very bottom of the 1969 tour page, too, for another new image.
Yet more pictures have been added to the 1968 Far East Tour photo gallery. Thanks to Tom for all of the submissions, including more to be posted in a later update.
I've had a few emails and/or blog comments about Friday Music and the status of the vinyl releases for Instant Replay and Justus, as well as the Justus CD/DVD deluxe edition. Their website advertises all of these products, but gives little other information. A while back, it was announced that these products would be available this summer. I'll update the blog as needed on these items.
Micky will soon be on the road with the Happy Together tour. Check out the dates here. Tickets are now available for the shows Mike is performing in the UK. No word on any U.S. appearances.
Here are the latest updates to the site. You'll also notice that I've rearranged some of the tops of the tour pages.
1. 1968 Far East Tour (new pictures in the gallery from the Sydney press conference...first time I have ever seen these! Thanks, Tom.)
2. Salt Lake City '68 (new photos in the gallery)
3. 1989 European Tour (the summary was revamped and pictures were added to the photo gallery)
4. 1989 North American/Japanese Tour (new pictures in the gallery plus new information in the tour summary)

Any suggestions or comments? Please contact me here.
I made some additions in various sections of the 1986 Tour summary, discussing in greater detail the connection between The Monkees and MTV during that time period.
I recently uploaded some Monkees solo rarities on the Live Almanac's YouTube channel.
Enjoy the video below...
Written by Michael Nesmith, this song was originally left in the Monkees vault in the 1960s. It finally received an official release in 1990.
Here's a radio interview with Peter from June 8, 2012.
I received the limited edition Davy Jones 45 in the mail today. It arrived (thankfully) in a sturdy box and was in pristine condition. The green vinyl is pretty cool, and the picture sleeve is protected by a plastic slip.
Bring on the Present deluxe edition box!
Don't forget to check out the 1966-1967 North American Tour page...newly revamped! I also added a few new photos to the gallery of the 1987 Tour page.
