Headquarters (Deluxe Edition)
The Monkees' first two albums deserved to be massive hits, but the band started to get fed up with being derided for neither writing nor playing on their records. So they took artistic control and came up with a winning set that almost matches their first two albums in terms of pure rock pleasure. The album's highlight is "Randy Scouse Git," an amazing Beatles/Kinks psych-rock pastiche and the groovy "Forget That Girl." This remastered edition contains countless bonus cuts and stereo mixes, including a freaky breakdown of Henry Mancini's Peter Gunn theme.
