More of The Monkees - Colgems 1967
None the less; it's just as good an album as their first. The concept was more or less the same again. Fine pop-tunes written by some of the most prolific songwriters of the time. Neil Diamond wrote their big international hit "I'm a Believer" and the fine "Look Out Here Comes Tomorrow". Goffin/King wrote the fine "Sometime in the Morning" and the great bonus-track "I Don't Think You Know Me". Producers and songwriters Tommy Boyce and Bobby Hart wrote "She" and the now classic "I'm Not Your Steppin' Stone". Neil Sedaka's "When Love Comes Knocking" is another highlight on the album.
Once again the Monkees' own fine songwriter Mike Nesmith was allowed to produce his own songs "Mary Mary" and "The Kind of Girl I Could Love".
A few misses is there too. "The Day We Fall in Love" and "Auntie Grizelda" are tracks that may have had some justification in 1967; today they are close to impossible to listen to. Skip those tracks and enjoy the rest of the album. Good bonus-tracks!!
