As of writing this, I just heard that Davy Jones died about two weeks ago.

I can think of no better tribute than to dedicate todays music page to him, Hence todays choice of the Monkees.

So, here is a link to their home page

and to their wiki page.

The Monkees produced several albums during their time as well as a great deal of Best of albums. Where possible though, I will try to name the actual album rather than just declare it can be found on a collection of some description.

 

So, I suppose I should start this page with the Monkees Theme, but to be honest I think that would be a little too predictable.

Instead, assuming I can find it, I’m going to start with a track called Randy Scouse Git. In Britain back in the sixties and seventies¬†words like Randy and Git, and possibly even Scouse were definite no-no’s, so the song was released under an Alternate Title. It was released on the Album Headquarters

And there it is, the Monkees, yay!
