The Monkees released their third LP “Headquaters” on May 22, 1967. It was the first time their record company let them do most of instrumental performances by members of the group itself, rather than by session musicians.
Headquarters reached No. 1 on the Billboard 200 chart and was certified double platinum in the United States with sales of more than two million copies within the first two months of release. It peaked at #2 on the UK charts. It is included in the 2006 book 1001 Albums You Must Hear Before You Die.
The album hit #1 on the Billboard charts but stayed there for only one week, and was then replaced by The Beatles’ Sgt. Pepper’s Lonely Hearts Club Band. It then began a run of 11 consecutive weeks at the No. 2 position as Sgt. Pepper’s Lonely Hearts Club Band remained at No. 1.
We will ask a 2 part question about this: 1. How many of you still listen to records by The Monkees, and B: How many of you remember this album?
Happy 51st Birthday to The Monkees’ LP “Headquarters”!!
