I am going to fight my deepest temptation to make today’s article about today being the 46th anniversary of the release of the Monkees second album called “More Of The Monkees”. Those of you who know me, know that I am a lifelong fan of the prefab four. But I hate that album. I hate It because the cover is smeared with drab olive green all over it. I hate that color. The guys are standing around looking like they are trying to pose for a JC Penny catalog. It turns out THEY WERE!! REALLY!! And the album was little more than leftover, unused tracks from the first album. A few great songs on it..A lot of filler.. Bad album cover. I don’t like this album. Granted I liked “More Of The Monkees” more than I liked the “Changes” album from 1970. By then, it was just Micky and Davy. But as for the classic line up, More Of The Monkees was just fodder to satisfy the greedy fingers of Don Kirshner. I don’t like it, so I’m not going to write about it.
My God.. What have I done?
I’ll let you listen to it. But you won’t like it..
Open Mike Night is the longest running local music program in Central Pennsylvania. Every Sunday Night at 10 pm, Michael Anthony Smith brings you the best in local and regional bands and solo performers.
The show airs on Sunday Nights, between 10 pm and Midnight.
Whenever possible, I have bands come on the show. I use the first hour for an interview segment, and if they feel like playing in the studio we'll play a few songs live. I ask bands that wish to appear on the show to send me material beforehand. I'd like to play your material leading up to the visit.
I ask that all submissions be sent on a marked CD.
