From The Stacks: The Monkees, “Daydream Believer” (Single)

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.
