The Monkees took “Daydream Believer” to number one in December 1967, a couple of years before Lisa Thompson started her Monkees scrapbook. Like all of the band’s big hits it was written by a non-Monkee, in this case John Stewart of Kingston Trio fame. The track also spawned what might be the band’s best known video clip:
There’s nothing particularly rare about my copy–remember, it was a number one single, so millions were sold–but both the vinyl and the sleeve are in good shape, and I’m a sucker for a 45 with a nice picture sleeve.
Want to pick up your own copy of “Daydream Believer” in its original picture sleeve? Expect to pay around five bucks or so. Happy hunting.

Backed with the great “Goin’ Down” too!
It’s always a treat when the b-side is a keeper!
