Thanks also go to the many people who contributed to this document. Please see the Bibliography section for details.

This document attempts to present a chronological account of the audio recording sessions of the musical group The Monkees. In order to provide a broad picture of The Monkees' activities throughout the time periods of the sessions, other activities such as live performances and television and motion picture filming will be mentioned as well. The format of this document is largely based on Mark Lewisohn's The Beatles Recording Sessions. Although Monkees researcher and liner note author Andrew Sandoval has already published his own detailed account of The Monkees' recording sessions, the author of this site has learned that an audience still exists for this document and hopes that you will find it of value and interest.
