Barrel Full of Monkees was a compilation album of songs by The Monkees, released in 1971 by Colgems Records, and was the last LP issued by the label. The double (two-disc) album was produced and marketed for children in the wake of the success of the Monkees's television show being rebroadcast on Saturday mornings by CBS.
While the track selection was first-rate, the collection didn't sell well; one possible reason might be that the front cover didn't picture the Monkees, substituting instead a cartoon of monkeys, and this may have led to confusion among record buyers and parents.
The collection was deleted with the closing of Colgems, and the next Monkees compilation, Re-Focus, was issued by Colgems's successor, Bell Records.
