The collection is Forever, a 14-track compilation that spotlights the group’s biggest hits, as well as “She Makes Me Laugh” from the new album. The Monkees were, of course, assembled more for their acting and comedic abilities than any musical ones, and many of their songs were simply disposable vehicles for a huge marketing machine, but the group eventually developed musical aspirations that yielded some strikingly good pop songs.

Description

The Monkees were, of course, assembled more for their acting and comedic abilities than any musical ones, and many of their songs were simply disposable vehicles for a huge marketing machine, but the group eventually developed musical aspirations that yielded some strikingly good pop songs, including capable covers of Neil Diamond’s “A Little Bit Me, a Little Bit You” and Harry Nilsson’s “Cuddly Toy,” as well as Michael Nesmith’s own “The Girl I Knew Somewhere,” the pop gem “Pleasant Valley Sunday,” and the pleasantly psychedelic “Porpoise Song”. Also here is the Monkees’ first single, “Last Train to Clarksville,” which in retrospect was a pretty good debut (even if they didn’t play their own instruments on it). This isn’t the perfect introduction to the Monkees, but it does do a decent job of spotlighting a group that was, in hindsight, no worse than — and in many cases, better than — what passed for cool and hip at the close of the 1960s.
