Originally recorded in October 1966, "Tear Drop City" (written and produced by Tommy Boyce & Bobby Hart) didn't see official release until it was selected as the first post-Peter Tork Monkees single in February 1969. The flip side, "A Man Without a Dream," was written by Gerry Goffin & Carole King and produced by Bones Howe. Both songs appeared on the 1969 album Instant Replay.
Micky, Davy, and Michael were guests on Glen Campbell's variety show on February 5, 1969. The trio performed "Last Train to Clarksville," "I'm a Believer," and "Salesman" live and lip-synced their brand new single "Tear Drop City." The trio's entire appearance from The Glen Campbell Goodtime Hour will soon be made available on the upcoming Monkees Blu-ray box set!
Here's the mono promotional single mix of "A Man Without a Dream."
