Reviews:

''More of The Monkees'' is the second full-length album by The Monkees. It was recorded in late 1966 and released on Colgems label #102 on January 9, 1967. It was number one on the Billboard 200 for 18 weeks—the longest of any Monkees album. It also went to number one in the UK. In the U.S. it has been certified quintuple platinum by the RIAA with sales of more than five million copies.

Monkeemania had reached full swing by the time the album was released. The Monkees' second single, "I'm a Believer"—included on this album—held the number one position on the Billboard Hot 100 and they were about to embark on a highly successful concert tour.

The release of ''More of The Monkees'' was rushed to cash in on the band's popularity. Members of the band, particularly Nesmith and Tork, were upset with the songs selected for the record, leading Nesmith to later say that ''More of The Monkees'' was "the worst album in the history of the world." The songs on the album were selected by musical supervisor Don Kirshner from a total of 34 songs.

The group began to grow concerned over their musical output, since this album and their debut, ''The Monkees'', featured them limited to just vocals with scattered instrumental contributions. Don Kirshner had a strict rule that The Monkees were to provide only vocals on his productions, though separate sessions produced by Michael Nesmith himself usually featured Peter Tork on guitar.

Within weeks of the release of ''More of The Monkees'', Nesmith lobbied successfully with the group's creators, Bob Rafelson and Bert Schneider, for The Monkees to be allowed to play their instruments on future records, effectively giving the quartet artistic control. To make his point clear to Kirshner, who was balking at the idea, Nesmith proceeded to punch a hole in the wall of the Beverly Hills Hotel during a group meeting with Kirshner and Colgems lawyer Herb Moelis, declaring to the latter: "That could have been your face!". This outburst came after Moelis snapped to Nesmith "You'd better read your contract", when Nesmith threatened to quit. Kirshner was later unceremoniously dumped from the project altogether. - Wikipedia
