MUSIC VIDEO OF THE WEEK - DOLENZ, JONES, BOYCE AND HART - I REMEMBER THE FEELING - 1975

I thought I would post something to acknowledge the 1 year anniversary of the passing of Davy Jones; instead of some promo film with a rainbow background that anyone who watched the second season of The Monkees' TV show knows quite well, I decided to showcase this rarity.

Micky and Davy teamed up with songwriters Tommy Boyce And Bobby Hart(the #1 smash "Last Train To Clarksville," its less successful rehash "Teardrop City" and of course their own hits "I Wonder What She's Doing Tonite" and "Alice Long") and did well-attended tours of the U.S. and Japan during 1975-76. They also released a self-titled album on Capitol in '76 that had a fine batch of well-written pop and rock tunes, but it got mercilessly outsold by a recycled Monkees greatest hits album that came out on Arista. The album was prefaced by this 1975 single; why it didn't become a hit(or at the very least a top 75 entry) is beyond me.

Coming up on The Retro Attic beginning in early March will be "Monkee Monday," which will be a basic short block of Monkees and solo tunes. Every Monday, each block will be different. Listen for the promo/sweeper in the next few days.
