Greatest Hits

Instant Replay was the seventh studio album by the Monkees, released by Colgems Records in 1969 as COS-113.

With the recent departure of Peter Tork from the group after the taping of 33⅓ Revolutions Per Monkee, Instant Replay was the first Monkees album not to include all four original members. The album features the single "Tear Drop City" and its B-side "A Man Without a Dream". The album reached #32 on the Billboard 200.

Half of the album's twelve tracks were recorded during sessions for previous albums. "Tear Drop City" had been recorded in 1966, but was overlooked for release at that time. Five other songs were recorded during sessions for The Birds, the Bees & the Monkees. Songwriting credits include Micky Dolenz, Michael Nesmith, David Jones, Tommy Boyce, Bobby Hart, Carole King, Gerry Goffin, Carole Bayer, Neil Sedaka, and Bill Chadwick.
