This deluxe, repackaged, remastered, and expanded edition of The Monkees' GREATEST HITS is a superlative Monkees anthology. It focuses on singles mixes of classics like "Words," "Pleasant Valley Sunday," and "I'm Not Your Stepping Stone," many of which appear here on CD for the first time.
This collection also features interesting album tracks like Micky Dolenz's "Randy Scouse Git," and the gorgeous, ultra-psychedelic "Porpoise Song," the theme to the band's underrated commercial-suicide film HEAD. This version of the disc ends with the two best tracks from the band's mid-'80s reunion, "That Was Then, This Is Now," and "Heart and Soul." As good a single-disc introduction as you're likely to find.
