We are proud to announce the release of the expanded, deluxe edition of Micky Dolenz’s solo album “Demoiselle”. The album is available on CD and Vinyl. The CD comes with a 32 page colour booklet featuring extensive liner notes and previously unseen photos. The Vinyl edition comes in a gatefold sleeve and is pressed on red vinyl.
Produced mainly by Jerry Corbetta (Sugarloaf – “Green-Eyed Lady”) and Dolenz, Demoiselle features solo recordings made between 1981-1992 and includes previously unreleased material. Originally planned
for release in the early 1990s, the album never received a record deal for a number for reasons. Dolenz privately released nine of the recordings in 1998, but they were only available for a short period
of time via mail order. This new and definitive version of Demoiselle has been remastered from the original master tapes. It includes 3 previously unreleased bonus tracks and presents the material in a different
Dolenz had started off on this solo album trail determined to forge an identity distinct from his Monkees past. Ironically, it would take a Monkees reunion for the fruits of Dolenz’s 1990’s solo music efforts to first see the light of day, as Dolenz recalls: “Nez and Peter and David came over to my house … I played them the [1992 demo] tracks, some of them, and some of those are the ones that ended up on [1996 Monkees reunion album] Justus.” (In the end, the Monkees recorded new versions of “Never Enough”, “Dyin’ Of A Broken Heart”, and “Regional Girl” for Justus; Dolenz recalls “We Were Not That Bad” also getting considered but does not remember why it did not make the final cut).
Glenn Gretlund from 7A Records: “This expanded reissue of Demoiselle has been more than two years in the making. We wanted to ensure that we could do the album justice and we have added everything to the package we possibly could, so that it now comes with three previously unreleased bonus tracks, a big 32 page booklet with extensive liner notes and previously unseen pictures. In addition, the recordings have been remastered from the original master tapes and I am really pleased with how everything has turned out. I remember buying this album when it first came out in the early 1990s. It must have been out of print for at least 20 years and I’m delighted to be able to make this new, superior version available to the public.”
