Monkee Music: Second Edition
An expanded edition of the book Monkee Music, incorporating new pieces on Good Times!, The Point, Davy's first solo album, and more
...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 risksLearn about accountability on Kickstarter
