About

...and it looks like we made it to the end.

Five years ago, I published the book Monkee Music, an unofficial guide to the music of the Monkees. A lot has changed in those five years. Davy Jones died, Michael Nesmith rejoined the band, a new album came out, and now Michael Nesmith has played what he says will be his last ever Monkees show.

It's time for a new edition of the book.

In Monkee Music second edition, I will add new chapters for Good Times!, for the pre-Monkees music by Davy and "Michael Blessing" included on the The Monkees deluxe box, and the Present and Instant Replay boxes released since the book's release. I will also revise and expand some of the other chapters, fixing errors, and totally rework the chapter on Pool It!

As a stretch goal, if backing reaches £1500, I will include the cast recording of The Point featuring Micky and Davy, Dolenz, Jones, Boyce & Hart, and more.

Risks and challenges

The risks are minimal. This is a second edition of a book I've already written and published -- only the new material needs writing, and I have written many books of this nature before. Assuming no health problems so bad that I am physically unable to type, there should be no risks
