Here’s a little quiz. Who sold the most records in 1967? The Beatles? Nope. The Beach Boys? Nope? Elvis? Nope. A Motown group like the Temptations? Nope. Give up? Believe it or not it was the Monkees a manufactured group. They didn’t really play their own instruments on their albums. That was done by a bunch of session musicians known as the Wrecking Crew who also played on the Beach Boys albums. Glenn Campbell was one of the Wrecking Crew session musicians. There is a really good documentary about the Wrecking Crew on YouTube.

Anyhoo, since I’ve been doing 60’s stuff here is a song by the Monkees.
