Who's ready to have some fun with The Monkees as they celebrate their 50th anniversary? With a tour kicking off in May and the group’s first new album in 20 years, GOOD TIMES!, due June 10th, Monkee-mania will be taking 2016 by storm!
GOOD TIMES! features all three surviving band members – Micky Dolenz, Michael Nesmith, and Peter Tork. The unmistakable voice of the late Davy Jones is also included with a vintage vocal featured on one song. To produce the new album, the band found the perfect musical co-conspirator in Grammy® and Emmy®-winning songwriter Adam Schlesinger (Fountains Of Wayne, Ivy). GOOD TIMES! will be available on CD and digitally June 10, with a vinyl version coming out on July 1.
It’s been a good couple of years for Ride fans: the band got back together in late 2014, spent a good chunk of 2015 performing live dates in Europe and North America, and now that they’re back on the radar of America music fans in a big way, we’re releasing an Original Album Series box set featuring five discs.
“But wait!” you shout. “Ride only had four studio albums!”
Indeed they did, but there’s a fifth disc in the mix nonetheless. To clarify the situation, allow us to lay out the contents of the set for you.
