Now Available: The Monkees, Good Times!

You may not know this, since it’s hardly gotten any press at all, but we released a new Monkees album today.

We know we’re most likely completely blindsiding you with this information, as it’s only been discussed in Rolling Stone, The New York Times, and basically every print and online publication that covers pop culture in even the slightest capacity, so our apologies if we’ve startled you. If you feel like you need to sit down for a moment, we’d understand.

Happy Birthday: Cilla Black | Happy Anniversary: Two of Cilla Black’s Albums
Had she not left us on the first of August of last year, today would’ve been Cilla Black’s 73rd birthday. It’s always rough to celebrate the date of someone’s birth for the first time after their death, but there’s considerable solace to be found in listening to some of Cilla’s music, as it’s a reminder that she’ll always be with us in some capacity.

Rhino Factoids
Believe the hype: today is Mick Ronson’s birthday. While this isn’t a formal holiday, it nonetheless gives you license to go listen to as much material featuring his guitar work as you can possibly fit into a 24-hour period, but if you don’t understand why we snickered a bit when we typed the words “the hype,” then allow us to explain.

Happy 40th: Ramones, Ramones
If you’re looking for proof that punk rock never dies, then you need look no further than this fact: the Ramones’ self-titled debut album is celebrating its 40th anniversary this year, and the band is still as popular as ever, despite the fact that this year also celebrates the 20th anniversary of the band’s dissolution.
