The Monkees - More of The Monkees
Episode date - October 1, 2021
The Monkees’ second album signified an improvement over the debut album, so it is interesting to discover just how haphazard the sessions were, or how frustrated the four “bandmembers” were.
At first, all four of the Monkees were okay with their role as actors, but once the debut album started bringing in more cash than the tv show, every person involved fought to retain their interests (such as produce Don Kirshner and/or songwriters Boyce/Hart), while the Monkees themselves struggled to have a voice in their material.
Regardless of the friction, “More of the Monkees” sold even better than the debut, becoming the biggest selling album of the year – yes, even over The Beatles!
