The Monkees originally aired from 1966 to 1968 and became a real band when their hits singles like "Last Train to Clarksville", "Pleasant Valley Sunday", "Daydream Believer", and "I'm a Believer". They have sold more than 75 million records worldwide and had international hits and at their peak in 1967, the band outsold the Beatles and the Rolling Stones combined.
1986 saw the Monkees’ 20th anniversary and once again they found themselves in the limelight singing their longtime fan favorites but adding new hits like, “That Was Then This Is Now,” with Micky Dolenz and Peter Tork. By that time, Davy Jones had joined them once again as they released “Heart and Soul.”
