Listen to the band!,
This review is from: The Very Best of The Monkees (Audio CD)
Although they were a band put together in the 60s to challenge amongst others The Beatles, Messrs Jones, Tork, Nesmith and Dolenz fire it up pretty well. My favourite song on this album is Randy Scouse Git, which is not at all what you think it's going to be like and is an unusual title for such a meaningful song.
The four men were lovable and talented comedians and I watched their show every Saturday morning in the 70s and I know all the songs, I am proud to say. This is fantastic, poppy, witty music that sits somewhere between The Kinks, The Animals, The Zombies and (dare I say it) the Fab Four.
They're just too busy singing to put anybody down.
