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.


When I asked Peter Tork to sign an autograph for my sister, I explained to him that she was 11 and 12 years old when The Monkees aired on TV and that she watched every episode completely transfixed.  I told him that I was 16 and 17 and watched it too but enjoyed watching how their songs evolved.  I remember telling him that I went to see Head twice in the theater.  We discussed the "black box" for a while too.  When I said so long to him, I said "It was such a pleasure talking with you, Mr. Thorkelson."  He gave me a smile I'll never forget as he shook my hand.

On Peter Tork, George I recall was very impressed with his banjo playing for one.

Sure can twang those banjo strings

Thanks for that HG. I recall now George's complimentary words on his playing was in the context of him using him on Wonderwall.

You learn something new every day!
I never knew that Peter Tork was on 'Wonderwall'.
