But, the purpose of the show was to capitalize on The Beatles' popularity.

The Monkees did have some of the best songwriters of the day cranking out music for them. I still like their music to this day.

'IMHO' it was basically just another group like Disney throws together.  Technology being what it was in 'those days' - TV (not DVD's) was the best way to promote it. 

I enjoyed it any way - preferred 'Pete Townsend' (?) since no one else did.  Even still have some of their albumns and have taught my grandkids the "Monkee Walk" while singing the song - "Here we come, walking down the street..."

Of course I used to love this show too!! Those guys were characters thats for sure! My fav. was Mikey too! I have a thing for drummers! Oh, I heard rumors that other people played the instruments off camera while they acted like they did on this true? All I know is that I still have the last train to clarksville album!  [report anonymous abuse]
