The label credits "No Time" to The Guess Who (who also had a song named "No Time" - thanks, Kevin), but here's Micky singing The Monkees' "No Time" from the Headquarters album. Members of The Dynamics join Micky. Thanks to Al Bigley for sending this one in...
UPDATE: This was originally posted on the Live Almanac blog on May 5, 2013. It's a great article and I thought this would be a good day to revisit it. If you are in the United States and chose not to deal with Black Friday shopping crowds, this will keep you busy for a while. Enjoy!
These articles are a must read for any Monkees fan, and could perhaps be the definitive assessment of the group's 1968 feature film, Head. Written by pop historian Rachel Lichtman (who also produced the video footage shown on the 2011/2012/2013 tours) and Monkees author and archivist Andrew Sandoval, and featuring interviews with Micky, Davy, Michael and Peter, no stone is left unturned as the history, impact and legacy of the film are recalled in the November/December 2010 issue of Shindig!
In upcoming blog posts, an interview with Peter from this same issue will be featured, as well as the magazine's review of the Head Rhino Handmade deluxe edition.

"Back in California. Starting work on the live album. It sounded pretty good from the samples we listened to on the road. I'll start editing the best of all the versions of the songs and it will come out in January. It is only a limited edition and won't be available on Amazon or iTunes for a while.
The Super Deluxe is sold out and the Deluxe is almost sold out but there are a stack of the Standards left.

Live albums are hard to do -- so many things have to fit together -- and it's not like taking a recording of one show and having that be the representative of all the live shows. It is almost impossible to catch all the subtleties and nuances in one show. We did 22 shows on this tour and I think there is a little magic in all of them. But it will be a long and arduous editing process. The band performances and the slight changes in the arrangements and the different reactions of the crowds make editing it all together almost intractable --- finding the one take where everything meets and melds just right.
Nonetheless I am going to try to leave each song as complete in one take as I can and try to use the whole song and performance as a minimum meme.
It may not work.
Then again, it might.
Like all Thanksgiving dinners -- one never knows. Just plenty to be grateful for."
After their performance at the Hollywood Bowl on June 9, 1967, The Monkees spent time recording songs for their fourth album before leaving on a European trip that would include concerts at Wembley in England. On June 23, the band departed Los Angeles for Paris, France. Over the next several days in the French capital, The Monkees filmed what would become the second season episode "Monkees in Paris."
