The Monkees were started in 1966 by NBC TV Network to show what was happening at these changing times . Many people were interviewed for the jobs including Steven Stills, Peter's friend, however Steven didn't get the job. Instead they picked Mickey, Davy, Mike, and Peter and they went from a T.V. show to the world's most popular rock group and became part of American Music history. In the beginning of their career many famous writers helped them with such hits as "I Am a Believer",etc.
But after some critism of the boys not having input into the material,they decided to change that fact and made many other great songs such as "Shades of Gray" and "Words". I feel much of their later work is better than the beginning of their career. No matter how you feel about the group, I do not think that there is a person on earth who cannot sing "Daydream Believer"! One piece of trivia about the group is that if they did not take things into their own hands their next song would have been a song called Sugar ,Sugar!! The history of the group may have been very different but I feel they made alot of great music even by doing it themselves. At one point in music history the Monkees were more popular than the Beatles , if you could image this . They also attemped to become movie stars in their movie called HEAD
Even today , everyone enjoys watching them on their tv show and watching the great showmanship which this group had and still does great in concerts today!
This I feel is one of the best Monkee albums made and includes such songs as: She, When Love Comes Knockin' ,Mary,Mary Your Auntie Grizelda, I'm Not Your Steppin Stone, Look Out,Laugh, I'm a Believer and many more great songs!
