I love that Monkees episode that features Bobby Sherman and when the hot shot producer grabs Micky and Peter's LP on the beach and looks at it and exclaims "Davy Jones Sings!" when you can plainly see the title "David Jones" on the album. This pre-Monkee LP (1965) features British music hall style ditties next to Herman's Hermits type pop numbers. Also "Theme For A New Love" shows David's spoken whispers that would also find its way to Monkees albums ("The Day We Fall In Love").
Why wasn't "Girl" on this album? How come no producer could provide THE MAN with some hit songs at this point? Released on Bell Records in 1971, I love this album but it could've been so much more. Regardless, "Davy Jones" RULES!
On this 1979 promo platter Mike talks of the importance of being able to watch and make music videos, how he copes with being a millionaire, and how one day in the future ("I know that sounds very 2005") via a TV screen, we'll be able to get directions to a friend's house, buy something without having to go to the store and have it delivered directly to your home and other advanced theories from Carmel's coolest resident...a rare promotional album...
