Mike Sacks talks with Monkee great and early proponent of country rock, MICHAEL NESMITH, about music, comedy, and his involvement in the early years of MTV. Monkee fans rejoice!
Spot Henry in the reflection of Micky's sunglasses!
Note the gentleman behind Peter is wearing a Pacific Arts T-shirt. Pacific Arts, of course, was Michael Nesmith's production company that he led from the late 1970s through the 1990s.
The Monkees and their band performed "I'm a Believer" on The Tonight Show with Jay Leno on June 17, 1996. Davy, Micky, and Peter spoke with Leno afterwards and announced the release of The Monkees' 1996 album, Justus.
Peter is seen below playing his Guild acoustic guitar during filming of the second season episode "Hitting the High Seas." This is also the same guitar Peter used during sessions for the Pisces, Aquarius, Capricorn & Jones Ltd. album. Peter's Guild guitar was purchased in Nashville, Tennessee in 1967, and he's had it refinished several times since acquiring it.
The good times continue into the holiday season as Monkees fans in the United States will have the opportunity to purchase a limited edition vinyl EP that will collect all of the bonus tracks from Good Times!
As part of a special Record Store Day release on Black Friday, Rhino Records will issue Good Times! Plus!, featuring the four non-album songs that were previously only available via iTunes and exclusive retail CDs in both the US and Japan. Limited to 2500 copies, Good Times! Plus! will be pressed on 10" red opaque vinyl. Here's the official track listing:
SIDE A: "Terrifying," "Me & Magdalena" (Version 2)
SIDE B: "A Better World," "Love's What I Want"
Check out Record Store Day's official website for participating stores, but it might be a good idea to call ahead and make sure this Monkees item will be in stock.
Linda Jones and Talia Jones Roston were on hand at The Monkees' concert last night in Paso Robles, California to accept a special gift from Micky Dolenz and Peter Tork for the Davy Jones Equine Memorial Fund. Take a look at the signature on the check!
