Hello Friends! We're travelling back to 1968 this week with The Monkees, and their slightly unusual LP 'The Birds, The Bees, & The Monkees'. Recorded almost totally separately by each of the members of the group, the album is a bizarre mish-mash of styles that just about manages to come together as one. Released at a time when mono was becoming deeply uncool in the USA, many people have never heard the true mono version of this LP, and today we find out if seeking out this incredibly rare mix is worth your time. So, get back upon your feet and come with me to Auntie's Municipal Court!
