Thanks to Jennifer who submitted this letter that she received from Rhino Records in late 1987. Jennifer can't recall exactly why she wrote to Rhino, but it looks like it had something to do with the lack of promotion and airplay the Pool It! album received that year. Remember, The Monkees and MTV had a falling out in early 1987 which resulted in the cable music network refusing to air the videos for the singles "Heart and Soul" and "Every Step of the Way." The lack of an MTV push most likely impacted radio airplay of the new songs. (You can read more about the Monkees/MTV feud here.)
