Greatest Hits [Rhino]

( 9 )

Editorial Reviews

All Music Guide - Richie Unterberger
Twenty-song collection including all of their big chart hits, as well as key album tracks like "Theme From The Monkees" and "Mary, Mary," and the ace B-side "Goin' Down." The slightly more extensive Arista anthology still has the edge, due to the inclusion of two good cuts "Take a Giant Step" and "She" that are somehow omitted from this Rhino compilation. On the other hand, if you're still in the market for just one Monkees album, this will do just fine. Good, extensive liner notes, though the last two songs from 1987 singles that only featured Micky Dolenz and Peter Tork are a waste.

    Monkees still rock........

    The worthless Board of the R&Roll Hall of Fame still choose's to induct lesser groups year after year ignoring and Boycotting the Monkees.
    So be it the, they still Live-On and Rock on from the 60"s.

    It is an injustice, they made Great Classic Rock and Roll and it's mostly all here on this Rhino release. Thank God for the Monkees and Rhino Records. Parents and Grand-Parents do your self a favor and expose your children to Great clean music from the Monkees!!!

    This CD is gr8!!

    This Gr8est hitz CD is gr8!! It really collaborates and calculates all of their gr8est hitz onto one gr8 CD! The gr8 Michael Nesmith, Peter Tork, Davy Jones, and Micky Dolenz in all of their p0wning gr8ness play gr8ly on this gr8 CD! How gr8! This is honestly the gr8est collaboration of all gr8est hitz CD's of all-time. No band collaborates or calibrates more gr8ly than the Monkees! Now, collaborate all of your friends and buy this gr8 album!

    New Hits and Old Favorites

    I think it is a great collaboration of their hits from 30 years. It brings back old favorites and gives you new music as well.
