The band wrestled creative control from their producers for their third LP (1967). The result: another #1 smash and several of their all-time best songs: the Nesmith-penned hit The Girl I Knew Somewhere ; the driving rockers No Time; You Told Me; Randy Scouse Git; For Pete's Sake , and more!

The Monkees were televisions response to The Beatles and the British Invasion. They have always been called the Pre Fab Four (a term that has always bothered those of us who like the group), and its a tag/label that Headquarters addressed and should have silenced.
The Monkees initially was a television show.
With time constraints (and no band had them like this one did- something that their detractors never mentioned or factored into the equation) - meeting the demands of their network sponsors, the press commitments, doing the vocal work for the recordings, and the physical and mental demands of learning the scripts then filming the episodes, the first two albums were completed (and complimented) with session players- the four providing a vocals only effort. Mike contributed two songs per each album and Peter played alongside some of the session players on one of them but that was the initial extent of their involvement. When the albums sold in the millions, the audience was massive and so (it seems) was the envy. To their credit, they admitted what was going on very quickly, and fought a very tough and intense behind the scenes battle to gain control of their recording sessions. From that point on they began to play as a band. The result was this album and the talent- obvious to anyone who really listened. At the time it was enough to turn the tide the way that it should have. The album was overshadowed by Sgt. Pepper but so were a lot of other albums.
I want to point out some things that are very important about the group.Read more ›

Zilch was a sucker grasp at the greatness of the Byrds and the Beach Boys. Mike Nesmith was a spoid mama's rich boy. Read morePublished on April 3 2004 by Casey Flanagan
