I love "I'm A Believer", "Last Train To Clarksville" and "Pleasant Valley Sunday" among others but a real gem which rarely gets a mention is "The Girl I Knew Somewhere". Brilliant pop song.
On Peter Tork, George I recall was very impressed with his banjo playing for one.
To use a cricket expression, The Monkees 'bat a long way down'.The hits are often wonderful ('Pleasant Valley Sunday', 'Last Train To Clarksville', 'Daydream Believer') but many of their lesser known songs are equally as good.Off the top of my head.....'Circle Sky', 'Forget That Girl', 'What Am I Doing Hangin' Round', 'The Porpoise Song', 'Listen To The Band', 'For Pete's Sake', 'You Just May Be The One', 'As We Go Along', 'Daily Nightly', 'The Door Into Summer'.....all sensational. If any of them had pitched up on a Doors, Stones or (even) Beatles LP in the mid-to-late 60s no one would have batted an eyelid.
In 1967 The Monkees sold 35 million records, outselling The Beatles and The Rolling Stones combined.
It's probably me.
That's amazing. I didnt know that. And that's in the year of Pepper.
