This is a great concert by the Monkees in Japan because the band was really tight and no longer sounded like a garage band though that early phase for the band is also powerful (1967 tour).

The japanese concert though is one of the only examples of the Monkees playing much rare live songs like Day Dream Believer and DW Washburn.

The LIVE 1967 and LIVE BOX SET 1967 are great for historical reasons but Live in Japan 1968 is a must for its musicianship and sadly because it is the last time the Monkees were together onstage until 1997.
